Revival Of Nashville Discussed
It appears Nashville fans may have something to look forward to even after the series finale of the show was aired on ABC recently. Even as the show was cancelled by the network, the studio responsible for the show is currently talking with a number of platforms that have shown interest in airing the show.
According to a report from Variety, executives from Lionsgate revealed at an earnings call that four to five companies have shown interest in the show. The executives said these were “inbound inquiries” they received directly trying to find out if it was possible to move the show.
The members of the cast of the show are interested in going for another season if it will find another network to air it. The head of TV of Lionsgate, Kevin Beggs, said they have long-term deals with the cast of Nashville. Connie Britton, lead star of the show, had bittersweet feelings after the show was cancelled.
Beggs also talked about the number of seasons the studio aims to secure if they bring the show to a different venue. He said they are looking at one season at a time and their near-term plan is to simply get a full season. While shows like these can go on forever, they are thinking of taking it one season at a time. Beggs added that they are focusing on Season Five for the moment. When they land the fifth season, they will talk about the future seasons of the show.
While discussions are going on, UK fans of the show can look forward to a live performance by some cast members when the Nashville in Concert tour flies to the United Kingdom in June. The music of the show can also keep fans occupied while waiting for a possible revival of the show in another venue.
