ABC Cancels Nashville
I can't believe the news I woke up to this morning my favorite show is not returning next season.
ABC is canceling Nashville and two other shows. WHAT???!!!! NOoooooo!
I love the Rayna and Deacon love story. I want to know what happens to Maddie now that she's emancipated from her family. I want to see Scarlett and Gunner together again, and most definitely Juliette and Avery back together again creating their little family with baby Cadence.
Ok, maybe I'm a bit wrapped up in the show, but it's one of my Wednesday night staples. I look forward to it every week.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "after four seasons the network has canceled the country music drama, as well as the freshman mystery series The Family and sophomore series Galavant".
Cancelling the show is really surprising to me. Especially knowing that the show itself has "enjoyed a sizable DVR boost, up to a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, and enjoyed ancillary profits from soundtracks and concert tours."
And to top it off, Nashville was set to hit it's 100th episode next season.
They say one of the factors was due to the "anti-LGBT law recently passed in Tennessee, where the show filmed, that many of the cast members had spoken out against it. Really?? I understand people getting passionate over things, but since when does or should politics be involved with a fictious show? It's a show. It's not real life.
Regardless of what side you stand on politically, that is a ridiculous reason to cancel a show. Why should a show be bent to one political agenda or another? I'm sorry but that's how I feel.
Oh well... For us die hard Nashville fans we have two more new episodes to enjoy, with May 25th being the show's finale, before it disappears forever.
Sigh... ok. I don't like it, but I guess I'll deal with it.
Thankful I still have Grey's Anatomy and Scandla to look forward to on Thrusday's yet. Or at least I hope so. I don't want to wake up finding out those are canceled too.
