When Nashville was canceled over a month ago, fans held onto hope long enough for CMT and Hulu to come in and save the day — and now they're being rewarded in a BIGGER way!

Earlier this week, there was a bit of a scare when it was announced that Will Chase and Aubrey Peeple would no longer be on the show — would the two leads Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere be back?

Well, wait no more, Nashvillians! Sources close to the hit musical show told Variety that Connie and Hayden are both set to return for the fifth season — along with the rest of the original cast!

Honestly, we're just happy our two favorite country singing ladies are back for an encore!

Do you think Nashville would have survived without Connie and Hayden?!

Don't throw away your cowboy boots just yet!

As we reported in May, ABC made a surprise move and cancelled Nashville after four seasons. Not surprisingly, fans were pissed and vented their frustrations on social media!

Well it looks like the TV gods are answering our prayers because the country music drama will most likely be picked up for a fifth season!

According to sources, CMT is looking to renew the hit show, and if negotiations are in place in time, they will announce the news tomorrow at the CMT Music Awards!

The hour-long starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere may also air on Hulu, which would be a good move considering the streaming service already carries the previous seasons!

After the show was cancelled, producer Lionsgate TV was vigilant in pitching the show to other networks. It appears they were so confident it was going to be picked up that they chose a cliffhanger ending for season 4, mapped out a season 5, and even funded a writers room with new showrunners Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick at the helm.

Although nothing is set in stone, things are looking good y'all!

Yeehaw!

Did The Nashville Finale Tell The Story Of Kesha & Dr. Luke?! Plus, Find Out Why Fans Think The Show Will Live On!

*** WARNING: Nashville Spoilers Ahead ***

It's the end of an era… or is it?

Following its surprise cancellation last week, Nashville gave what could very well like be its final bow on Wednesday, much to the disappointment of its loyal fans.

While the episode itself was incredibly dramatic — will Hayden Panettiere's Juliette ever be seen again?! — the biggest thing we took away was how similarly the plot played out to Kesha's real life legal troubles with Dr. Luke!

The 29-year-old pop star has already portrayed herself during Season Four, so it clearly was not a coincidence that Connie Britton's Rayna opened up about a producer forcing himself on her AND then her daughter Maddie was placed in the same situation…

Not that we're thinking too much into it, but that could explain Kesha's cowboy-inspired outfit at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday!

But if you're nervous about the show's future following that cliffhanger ending, we actually have some good news.

After the series finale, Lionsgate Television consoled fans on Twitter with a pretty uplifting message, saying:

New Details About Hayden Panettiere's Postpartum Depression & Treatment

| Filed under: Hayden PanettiereHealthMental Health

Hayden Panettiere is doing her best.

Hayden Panettiere is doing all she can to battle postpartum depression.

As we previously reported, the Nashville starlet is seeking "holistic treatment," and according to People, she's putting the focus on being healthy.

A source divulged:

"She is trying to take care of herself. She wanted to get herself healthy again. The postpartum has been really scary for everybody, but she's taking care of it. She's taking care of herself."

That definitely explains why she would want to explore some more natural treatments on her path to recovery, especially considering she previously entered a rehab center back in October.

It's so good to hear that's she making herself a priority.

We'll be thinking of her during this difficult time!

May is always a rough time of year for television lovers…

Since most TV shows usually finish up their seasons in the Spring, it's always interesting to see which series get to live on to the Fall, and which will never be heard of again.

Unfortunately for fans, 13 shows failed to make the cut on Thursday as ABC, FOX, CBS, and The CW each cancelled at least one of their programs!

As you probably already saw, hit series Nashville and Castle were both discarded by the House of Mouse amidst behind-the-scenes drama, while Supergirl barely survived thanks to a move to a new channel.

So… which shows won't be making it to the 2016-2017 season??
