"Nashville" Cancelled by ABC

"Nashville" Cancelled by ABC

Lionsgate, which produces the country-music drama, is shopping the series to other outlets after it was canceled by ABC on Thursday (May 12), The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The network has ordered a bunch of new shows for next season: dramedy "This Is Us", spinoff "Chicago Justice", "Taken", "Trial and Error", "The Good Place" and "Powerless". The end of the series comes after Katic, 38, revealed in April that she would be leaving after season 8.

So now that Nathan Fillion is freed up, which superhero franchise do you think that he'll join?

CBS' only cancellation was symbolic: "CSI: Cyber, " a low-rated spinoff that was the last active series in a franchise that debuted in October 2000. With a new boss, it's clear that the network is cleaning house on some less-than-successful shows.

"We had four incredible seasons", Opry Entertainment President and Nashville Executive Producer Steve Buchanan tells Country Aircheck. The series finale will air on Wednesday, May 25.

Whilst Britton has said that she is "grateful" and "honoured" to have appeared on the drama and to have been a part of the world of Nashville, fans are still a little gutted.

The network trimmed a bunch of low-rated new comedies: "The Grinder", "Grandfathered", "Bordertown" and "Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life".

The show, which starred British actress Hayley Atwell in the title role, gathered a devoted fan following but did not achieve ratings success in the US.

And in at least a happier note, although CBS decided it didn't have room for "Supergirl", the freshman comic book series is moving to The CW, where it will fit in nicely with "Arrow", "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow".

But through a combination of network leaks and networks jumping the gun, a flood of announcements have gotten early exposure.

Hopefully the networks have left some news for us to cover next week.

Ahead of its upfront event, ABC has announced cancellations for "Castle", "The Muppets", "Galavant", "Nashville" and "The Family", among other series.

NEW FOR 2016-17: Dramas "Bull", "MacGyver", "Pure Genius", "Training Day"; Comedies "The Great Indoors", "Kevin Can Wait", "Man with a Plan".
