“Nashville” fans are surely feeling sad right now. Not only had ABC cancelled the show after four seasons, their favorite cast member Hayden Panettiere headed back to rehab for potpartum depression.
Entertainment blogger Perez Hilton announced on Thursday that the network will no longer renew the country musical drama for a fifth season.
Upon learning about the news, Mayor Megan Barry of Nashville, Tennessee immediately issued a statement as to how the townspeople feel.
“We are incredibly disappointed to hear the news that ABC has not renewed the show ‘Nashville’ for another season,” the local leader’s statement read in response to the cancellation of Hayden Panettiere’s and Connie Britton’s TV series. “The show has been an enormously successful promotional tool for our city, which is why the state of Tennessee and Metro Nashville were prepared to support production for a fifth season the be filmed here.”
“This is a loss for ABC and for the millions of fans across the world who have grown to love this show,” Barry added. “We have enjoyed hosting the cast and crew of the show over the last four years and look forward to future opportunities for film and television production here in Nashville.”
Earlier on Thursday, the 26-year-old New York-born actress took to Twitter to reveal her return to the rehab, Us Weekly reported.
“The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life,” Hayden Panettiere wrote. “Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!”
According to several sources, the former “Heroes” star would be seeking medical help in Utah.
It can be noted that this is already the second time that she would be admitted in a rehab facility for postpartum depression. The first time was in October 2015.
Hayden Panettiere gave birth to her child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko in December 2014.
