The rumors were true and the fans have spoken. Former ABC television show, Nashville, has found new life. The 60-minute drama was cancelled recently by ABC, but according to The Tennessean, the CMT network and Hulu streaming service will be airing the show for a fifth season.
When the announcement came in May that the show would no longer continue, fans of the show were outraged, even starting an online petition at Change.org in an effort to save the show. There were also several hashtags created on Twitter, including #Nashies, #BringbackNashville and #Savenashville.
Lionsgate, the show’s production company, had been open with the fact that they were looking for a new home for Nashville. The company teased on Twitter that “there’s more story to be told.” Turns out they were right.
