January 4th, 2018 is the final season premiere.
It’s been a surprising 5 seasons for the popular Country music series “Nashville”. After being cancelled on ABC, CMT picked it up and continued the characters’ journeys.
According to a recent press release from The Lippin Group, the 6th season will be the final one, but Lionsgate, Opry Entertainment and CMT promises to make it a memorable one for steadfast fans. Fans of the cast (Hayden Panettiere, Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack and more) have so much to look forward to next year.
Executive Producer Marshall Herskovitz had this to say about their decision, “All of us on ‘Nashville’ are so incredibly grateful to the show’s fans, who convinced CMT to give us a chance to keep telling the story of these remarkable characters. And we want to return the favor with a final season that celebrates all the joys and passions, twists and turns — and amazing music! — that made Nashville such an exciting journey for the last six years.”
Chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group, Kevin Beggs, added this about the emotional farewell, “…. After more than 120 episodes of unforgettable television, we believe that creatively it is time for the series to come to its triumphant close at the end of the upcoming season. We’re very proud of our incredibly talented cast and crew, the creative brilliance of our showrunners, and the loyal support of our great partners at CMT, Hulu and ABC Studios. Most importantly, we owe a special debt of thanks to the ‘Nashville’ fans who propelled the series to an incredible run. We owe it to them to make the 6th season the most exciting and memorable of all.”
Nashies should be proud of themselves. “Nashville” became CMT’s highest-rated and most-watched show in the network’s history (nearly 23 million viewers tuned in to on CMT and Nick). The final 16 episode season is aiming for a summer finale.
All the best to “Nashville” on season 6!
A Special Thanks to The Lippin Group for the press release.
