After ABC announced the cancellation of the country music drama Nashville, star Connie Britton stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers to discuss the end of its four-season run. Britton plays Rayna Jaymes, a country superstar in the mold of a Faith Hill or Trisha Yearwood.
“It’s a big deal,” she says. “It’s over. An end of an era.” Over the course of the show’s run, Britton lived in Nashville 10 months out of every year, raising her five-year-old son in the city. She added: “It’s bittersweet – I always feel like, to have four years on anything – you can never take that for granted.”
Britton and Meyers go on to discuss how “laidback” the culture of Nashville and country music are, with Meyers recalling his experience at the CMAs. “I was sitting behind someone whose hat was too big to see the stage. I thought ‘This is the only place where that happens.'”
Lionsgate, which produces Nashville, is reportedly shopping the show’s fifth season to other outlets, said The Hollywood Reporter. One of those outlets could be Hulu, which currently has subscription video on demand (SVoD) rights to Nashville. Last year, Hulu scooped The Mindy Project after it was canceled by Fox.After four seasons, ABC’s ‘Nashville’ has been cancelled. Watch here.
