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!
