Nashville Season 6? It’s not a done deal yet, but the music drama looks set to continue its stay at CMT in 2018, if network chief Kevin Kay‘s optimism is anything to go by, per Deadline:
I believe Nashville has a lot of life in it. I know that Rayna has passed away in a highly rated episode, and then the funeral was even more highly rated. We will see how the audience reacts to Nashville and the next 11 episodes but I believe that there are great fans of the show and it’s got a good future ahead of it, we are encouraged that we can continue to do it. I honestly think it’s a great show, Ive been a fan of it forever.
Kay says he’s open to moving Nashville to sister network Paramount, but is “inclined to leave it [on CMT], adding:
I think that’s where it should be and maybe try to support it on Paramount Network with marathons, replays.
