With the abrupt decision of ABC to cancel Nashville in its fourth season, the musical series ended with a huge cliffhanger that left fans staring at the roll credits and wanting more of it.
The fourth season and apparently the last season concluded with Juliette flying to meet Avery, the father of her child, Cadence. Unfortunately, while Avery was waiting in the airport, an announcement was made that the plane that Juliette is on has lost contact with air controls. It was not cleared if Juliette lived or not.
However, there could still be hope for the fans of the series as Kevin Beggs of Lionsgate TV said that the cliffhanger has a reason, and it is that the production is doing their best to have the series’ 5th season on a different platform or network.
It is a huge gamble for the series, but it can also be a reason for other networks to give the series another chance.
Reports claim that an “alternative scene” has already been filmed, with Juliette arriving at the airport and meeting Avery, making it a happy ending. However, Beggs said that the scene was filmed when they were not yet thinking about going to another platform.
Beggs said that the ending of the season, which was thought about and crafted for weeks has ended up exactly how they envisioned it, and that a “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.”
