It’s really happening. According to Digital Spy, the cast of Nashville has just begun negotiations with CMT for the series’ upcoming fifth season.
After ABC cancelled the country music drama in May, CMT said they would air a fifth season and episodes will be available to watch the next day on Hulu.
Now, star Sam Palladio, who plays Gunnar Scott, says the business side and details of the deal have just begun:
At the moment negotiations have just begun. We only just found out that we have a new home. The business side of things is always interesting. When we got cancelled, a lot of us found out via Twitter and there wasn’t much communication when these big deals are struck.”
He added that he hopes he’s returning for season five because there are more stories to be told:
How Hollywood works in the business side of things is a little different to how us actors find out the information, so I would hope that everybody is returning. Certainly, everybody is so strong and we’re great friends, but it can be a cutthroat business.
Let’s hope that I’m returning! At the moment I assume I am, but we’ll find out, I guess! … There are definitely more stories to be told.”
What do you think? Are you a Nashville fan? Will you watch season five?
