'Nashville' Being Shopped Elsewhere After ABC Cancellation

ABC may have axed the series after four seasons on Thursday, but studio Lionsgate is actively seeking a new distributor for the musical drama.

Fans of ABC's hit show, Nashville, are in mourning today after learning that the television show has been canceled. It is expected to air its final episode by the end of the month. An obvious choice is Hulu, since the streaming service already has the rights to previous seasons of the show, and Lionsgate has a close relationship with the company as it produces other titles on the service like Casual.

News of the show's cancellation has left fans in shock.

Nashville is not the only show that recently got the axe.

Bob Raines, executive director for the Tennessee Entertainment Commission, also expressed his department's disappointment in the announcement, saying, "The state has supported the show, and we believe it was an excellent marketing vehicle for Tennessee".

Deadline.com reports that the network has canceled the series after four seasons. Connie Britton heads the cast as fading star Rayna Jaymes who locks heads throughout the series with Hayden Panettiere's rising star Juliette Barnes.
