Nashville wrapped its run with its series finale on ABC this week, but Lionsgate TV has not given up on the cancelled drama. In fact, Lionsgate is promising loyal fans of the series that they will see a fifth season – even if it isn’t on ABC.
Deadline reported that the Lionsgate is still fighting to find a new home for the series, and that was made clear with a tweet sent out last night.
#Nashies What a cliffhanger! But we won’t leave you hanging. There’s more story to be told. #BringBackNashville

In addition to the tweet sent out by Lionsgate TV, the studio spoke about the Nashville situation in a call with the press on Thursday morning. Variety reported that four or five outlets have expressed interest in picking up Nashville for season five.
The creator behind the series, Callie Khouri, still wants more time too. She said the following, according to Deadline:
“Nashville fans are the absolute best, and support for the #BringBackNashville campaign has been amazing. We are so grateful for our extremely loyal following. We have stories left to tell and songs left to sing.”
Fans have been fighting to have the series saved on social media. A petition has also seen over 100,000 signatures.
Last night’s finale did leave the door open with a cliffhanger while wrapping up some of the other stories on the series. Fans will have to wait and see if another network or service decides to pick up Nashville.
Do you want to see a fifth season of Nashville? Tell us what you think.
I love this show. I was watching reruns on AXSTV. The last show on that channel was the same day of the last show on ABC. I am glad I have some shows recorded. I really hope it is picked up by another channel. Hope to hear some good about Nashville soon.
Too much unfinished business. Finally we have Rayna and Deacon on track. Gunner and Scarlett going on a positive direction. Luke calling his ex wife that could be very interesting. Juliette distress call from private jet. That can’t just be the end. Will and his stand. That’s something to really follow through. Mattie coming home. So much that it’s just a shame to cancel the series.
Want to see more. Please bring it back!
Typical abc to cancel one of the best shows on tv!! Bring it back somewhere!!
