Two shows that some thought perhaps were on the bubble of being cancelled, were happily not and will live to see another day and another primetime television season!

This afternoon, ABC renewed the country music soap drama Nashville and the Hamptons sudser, Revenge! 

Nashville gets its second season and Revenge its third, whose season two cliffhanger finale airs this Sunday at 9PM EST/PST.

According to the Huffington Post, “Although the Connie Britton drama Nashville opened strong with a 2.8 in the 18049 demo, it spent much of the season hovering around a 1.8, so it was considered a bubble show. Still the series was well-received among critics and Britton remains one of TV’s most beloved stars following, Friday Night Lights. The fact that the show’s country music soundtrack continues to sell is another mark in its favor.”

As well as Nashville, the network renewed Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, Last Man Standing, The Middle, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Scandal and Surburgatory.

So are you excited that Nashville and Revenge will return for another season, meaning the primetime soaps are alive and kicking? Weigh-in!

I love Revenge!!! I’m hoping that Body of Proof wasn’t cancelled. Nashville was OK (can do without so much music) but Body of Proof is a much better show. I hope ABC thinks twice.

YEZZZZ!!!! REVENGE is back for another season! Although a lot of people found season 2 off the track I liked it very much and enjoyed every episode this season and made my sunday nights fun to watch tv! Once Upon A Time was less execiting and getting boring at times wanting me to push the fast forward button often which never happened while watching Revenge! So Revenge it will for another year! Great!

I love Nashville and Revenge, so I’m really happy to hear that they’ve been renewed. I probably won’t be able to watch their new seasons live this fall though, because I work evenings at DISH. I’ll have to see them on my DISH Hopper instead. I already set it to always record ABC’s primetime shows, including Nashville and Revenge, so I’ll be able to see the shows even if I forget to set timers for them.

revenge’s openly gay creator kelley stepped down from revenge most probably bec of its low ratings. New showrunner of revenge needs to bring more racially diverse chars as cast members who are treated w/ the same care as the white chars. There are too many white chars on revenge. While ashley is the only char of color who is a cast member. Char of color ashley is of lower economic status compared to the white chars. Typical from hollywood. And all the help of victoria are women of color. These kind of portrayals on revenge has hurt their ratings. New showrunner needs to create more chars of color who are billed as cast members! The lack of diversity for a ny based soap opera like revenge is pathetic.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

NASHVILLE To Become Broadway Musical

Looks like the Music City drama, Nashville, originally on ABC and then on CMT, has more than nine lives! Now the popular soap is headed to the stage and Broadway after six seasons on the small screen.

The show is set to have a musical adaptation with 10-time Tony Award winner Scott Delman (American IdiotRagtimeBook of MormonHello, Dolly!Fun HomeMean Girls) in charge.  In addition, Delman will serve as lead producer of the show and he has acquired the live theatrical rights from Lionsgate and ABC Studios.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material,” Delman said in a statement. “From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.  We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music — a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division.”

Additional information on the upcoming musical, including production dates and a creative team, is expected to be announced shortly.  Now the question becomes; will some of its beloved series stars be in the Broadway rendition of the series?
