WARNING: NASHVILLE SPOILERS AHEAD!
In the interview, Kay says he thinks Nashville has “a lot of life in it” despite the recent death of Connie Britton’s lead character, Rayna James:
I believe Nashville has a lot of life in it. I know that Rayna has passed away in a highly rated episode, and then the funeral was even more highly rated. We will see how the audience reacts to Nashville and the next 11 episodes but I believe that there are great fans of the show and it’s got a good future ahead of it, we are encouraged that we can continue to do it. I honestly think it’s a great show, I’ve been a fan of it forever.”
What do you think? Do you watch Nashville? Will you still watch without Connie Britton?
