Speaking to THR, he said:
“The ending we ran was the ending always envisioned for this season. These things are crafted over weeks and months. In our estimation, to go with a quickly assembled too-easy wrap-up is more of a disservice to the fans who have invested four years in this great cast and these great stories. And there’s more stories to tell.
We’re not looking to write ourselves into a corner and actually wrapping up stories in a somewhat saccharine way is the worst box you can put yourself in.”
Beggs says he’s open to a Nashville spinoff, but only if the show returns for Season 5 first:
“We love spinoffs but it’s premature to think about that because we feel the flagship has many more miles to go. If the right opportunity came, we would do it but it would be in the context of continuing with this and seeing where we go down the line.”
Stay tuned for the latest on Nashville attempt to survive the cancellation reaper…
