Nashville has been officially renewed for Season 5 on CMT, according to reports on Friday.

‘Nashville’ Renewed For Season 5 On CMT

In May, ABC decided to cancel Nashville after four seasons. Now, the popular country drama will have a new home on CMT for next season.

“CMT heard the fans. The wave of love and appreciation they have unleashed for Nashville has been overwhelming,” said Brian Philips, President of CMT. “Nashville is a perfect addition to our evolving lineup of big music specials, documentaries, and original series.”

“We see our fans and ourselves in this show and we will treasure it like no other network,” Philips declared. “Nashville belongs on CMT.”

Hulu also announced that Nashville episodes will continue to be available for streaming — a day after they air on CMT.

Nashville has long been a fan favorite show on Hulu and we are so proud to continue to make new episodes available for fans to stream the day after they air,” said Craig Erwich, SVP and Head of Content, Hulu. “We look forward to bringing even more episodes of this acclaimed series to its passionate and devoted audience.”

“CMT and Hulu are the perfect combination for our iconic and beloved series Nashville and we want to thank the incredible fans for their unwavering support — #Nashies, you helped make this possible,” said Kevin Beggs, Chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group.

“We also want to extend our appreciation to the State of Tennessee, City of Nashville, and Ryman Hospitality for their unending support,” Beggs added.  “They have been a key ingredient to the continued success of this show and we’re thrilled to extend our partnership for a fifth season.”

Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz are showrunners for the fifth season — though there has been no word yet on the season’s premiere date or potential cast changes.
