Nashville may have found a new home at CMT.
CMT is eyeing a pick-up of the fan-favorite series for a fifth season following ABC’s cancellation that sent Twitter into a frenzy.
CMT was one of many potential buyers for “Nashville,” which sparked interest from four or five different venues, according to Lionsgate Television, the studio that was shopping the show around with ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment.
Lionsgate had been actively searching for a new home for “Nashville,” immediately after ABC cancelled the bubble show. Support poured in from rabid fans, dubbed “Nashies,” who were responsible for the show’s #SaveNashville campaign that was trending on social media for days.
With “Nashville” more than likely returning (though the Season 5 CMT renewal is not yet official), it seems there will be a long future for the show beyond a fifth season.
