ABC did not include Nashville when it renewed a large batch of its series earlier this month, and one of the stars of the series is not even sure about the future of the series.
Connie Britton is the actress behind Rayna James on the country primetime soap, and she is also an executive producer on the series.
She spoke about the series in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and she made it clear that she has no idea if the series would return for a fifth season. This is different than a report late last year that almost guaranteed a renewal for the series for next season.
Britton said the following about ABC’s renewing the series:
“I don’t know. It’s always so hard to know what’s going to be the future. Those things are so completely out of our hands, so I always just wait to hear.”
When answering another question, she stopped herself from saying that the series was nearing its end with the wedding of Rayna and Deacon. She actually vetoed the idea of the pair getting married at the end of last season. She did not want the hospital bedside wedding.
