ABC Cancels Shows ‘Nashville,’ ‘The Family’ and ‘Galavant’


Networks have been busy making final decisions about the fate of TV shows, and sadly three favorite ABC shows are not getting a return – Nashville, The Family and Galavant.


ABC is leaving Nashville.

The network has canceled the country music drama after four seasons, as well as the freshman mystery series The Family and sophomore series Galavant.

The drama was one of the few not included in ABC’s 15-show renewal spree back in March, and also one of the network’s only dramas from an outside studio (Lionsgate). However, the country music series’ cancellation was still somewhat surprising. The series enjoyed a sizable DVR boost, up to a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, and enjoyed ancillary profits from soundtracks and concert tours.

The primetime soap was set to hit its 100th episode next season, and had lined up respected writers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick (My So-Called Life, thirtysomething) as new showrunners for season five.
