CMT in talks to produce fifth season of “Nashville”


Fans of Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes might get another chance to see their favorite country divas again. Deadline has reported that CMT is in talks with producer Lionsgate for a fifth season of Nashville, the recently canceled ABC drama.

While Nashville has been on the bubble the past few years, many thought that ABC would give the series a fifth season, after making announcements of new showrunners Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, who were announced to succeed departing original showrunner Dee Johnson just a little while ago. However, during that time ABC put a new president in place, and canceled veteran shows like Nashville and Castle.

The soapy drama would be a good fit with CMT, who announced they are going back into the scripted television arena, with a few new series debuting this summer. If a deal is finalized soon, a pickup could be announced as early as tomorrow during the CMT Music Awards.
