“Nashville” Season 5 was reported to open with brand-new episodes in CMT after the previous network cancelled several seasons previously.
According to Yibada, “Nashville” Season 5 may be picked up by another network, which would be CMT, but they faced another problem with Connie Britton.
They might not be able to star Connie Britton in the next season for no apparent cause as of now. Neither the production team nor the executives have said anything about this concern.
Connie Britton tweeted earlier on May 25 when “Nashville” ended its season finale, wishing everyone love through her peaceful message.
She said, “Enjoy tonight’s @Nashville_ABC finale. Thank you amazing fans, amazing cast, amazing crew, amazing Nashville. Y’all are the good stuff.”

Fans expressed their sentiments for the actress through different tweets in response to her statement. Most of them said they wish she would make it in the next season.
They also mentioned bringing back the American show “Nashville” because it has been part of their lives, too, and seeing Connie Britton is part of it.
UK fans also questioned the ending of the show when in fact “Nashville” Season 4 has not been aired yet as it is scheduled for next month.
Many fans seemed unhappy with the cancellation of “Nashville” Season 12, especially Connie Britton, who has been playing the role of Rayna Jaymes, the lead character of the series since 2012.
If the show confirms its permanent cancellation, Jezebel reported that Connie Britton could focus on her next set of projects lined up.
The report stated Britton’s excitement for her next set of projects after “Nashville” finale.
Meanwhile, “Nashville” Season 12 might be on CMT as executives of the show and the network are reportedly having an ongoing discussion.
Lionsgate TV Chairman Kevin Beggs mentioned in an interview his determination to pursue the show after ABC.
He said, “There’s a little short-term pain but ultimately long-term gain because we intend and are quite focused and are in substantive and serious conversations with multiple buyers about continuing the show on another platform.”
“If we didn’t feel that was going to happen, we might have gone a different way,” Beggs continued.
“Nashville” Season 11 cliffhangers may be hints for fans to maintain their hopes of having Season 12 soon with CMT. If not, Connie Britton’s role as Rayna Jayme could remain wishful thinking.
