ABC has not yet announced the pick-up of Nashville for season five. In fact, the network is still deciding on the fate of the new fall line-up for this season. Last week, they announced the pick-up of The Muppets for three more episodes, and Quantico was given a full season order.
As for Nashville, the ratings for the series have dipped again this year. Some critics have mentioned the more dramatic tone of this season so far. Nashville’s ratings are in the same line as the ratings for Blood & Oil. ABC announced late in October that it was cutting the episode order for that new series.
Will ABC renew Nashville? Do you want a fifth season? Tell us what you think.
