Nashville - Ending After Season 6

CMT's Nasvhille is coming out for one final curtain call.

The Viacom-owned cable network has announced that its country music scripted drama's upcoming sixth season will be its last. The Hayden Panettiere and Charles Esten starrer will return for its sixth season on Thursday, Jan. 4 on CMT.

Created by Callie Khouri and produced by Lionsgate Television and ABC Studios, Nashville aired its first four seasons on ABC. The Disney-owned broadcaster canceled the Connie Britton starrer after season four. The decision was considered a shocker after Lionsgate hired thirtysomething producers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick to serve as showrunners on a potential fifth season (replacing Dee Johnson). Lionsgate and ABC Studios shopping the drama after the cancellation, with country music destination CMT surfaced as a natural extension of the show and landed first-run episodes of Nashville as part of a deal that gave Hulu SVOD rights to the drama. Most (but not all) of the cast returned, with Britton ultimately killed off the show within its first handful of episodes on CMT.

“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,” Herskovitz said. “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.”
