“Nashville” Season 5 might still happen even if it has been cancelled by ABC. There is reportedly a campaign to bring it back.
Immediately after the network’s decision, producer Lionsgate TV reassured fans that there is a chance that “Nashville” will find a new network to support it.
The official twitter account of Lionsgate TV knew there were fans who were heartbroken over ABC’s decision to cancel “Nashville” after four seasons. They asked fans to rally behind bringing back the show.
#Nashies we are working hard to find a new home for your favorite show! Thank you for your support & keep tweeting #BringBackNashville,” the tweet reads.
The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed that Lionsgate is indeed actively looking for ways to bring back the show.
Reportedly, Change.org suggested that the production company should try asking various streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu to get the show back on air. Vimeo is also an alternative.
If Lionsgate gets Netflix’s go signal, this is hardly a first project that the production company did with the streaming service. “Orange is the New Black” is a work by Lionsgate and is being shown by Netflix.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Amazon will find the deal a good one too if it is seriously working to give Netflix a serious competition.
If not streaming services, Celeb Dirty Laundry claims networks like E!, CMT, AXS, FOX, HBO, and Showtime can be considered by Lionsgate to appease the ranting fans.
Charles Esten, who plays Deacon Claiborne expressed how grateful he is that fans want the show back. He tweeted, “On a day like today, nothing could make me smile quite like the loud, loyal, lived love of the lionhearted #Nashies #GratefulDeaconFriday.”
At the time the cancellation was announced, one of the main cast members, Hayden Panettiere entered rehab again for post-partum depression.
“Nashville” was in its fourth season and was on track to hit its 100th episode in season five if it was not cancelled.
