The season, and perhaps series, finale of Nashville aired last week(May 25th)…but after ABC announced they were cancelling the program earlier this month a movement from the shows’ fans began.
Since then, many have been using the #BringBagNashville tag on social media…and nearly 160 Thousand people have signed a “Renew Nashville for Season 5″ petition at change.org.
Well, apparently your efforts are working! According to this Variety article, multiple networks have shown interest in the show!
Four to five different platforms are interested in scooping up “Nashville” for additional seasons, according to Lionsgate execs who spoke to reporters this morning on an earnings call, adding that all of those venues have been “inbound inquires coming directly to us, asking about the possibility of moving the show.”
“The fans and everyone else is clamoring for many more seasons,” Lionsgate’s head of TV, Kevin Beggs, said on the call. Variety sources echo that sentiment with an insider saying that everyone internally at Lionsgate is “remaining optimistic.”
As for the cast, they’re all on board for additional seasons. “We have long-term deals with the cast,” Beggs confirmed.
So keep tweetin’! Fans of the show may already know that a change was made to last week’s finale…cliffhanger, much?!
