Just like other beloved soap operas before them, All My Children and One Life to Live, who after being cancelled by ABC found a second home only to have them cancelled again, Nashville finds itself in a similar predicament.

News on Friday has that the upcoming sixth season of Nashville on CMT will be its last. Season 6 will kick-off in January with the 16 episode season coming to its series finale in the summer of 2018.

In a statement from executive producer, Marshall Herskovitz it read: “All of us on Nashville are so incredibly grateful to the show’s fans, who convinced CMT to give us a chance to keep telling the story of these remarkable characters. And we want to return the favor with a final season that celebrates all the joys and passions, twists and turns — and amazing music! — that made Nashville such an exciting journey for the last six years.”

Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs added: “After more than 120 episodes of unforgettable television, we believe that creatively it is time for the series to come to its triumphant close at the end of the upcoming season. We’re very proud of our incredibly talented cast and crew, the creative brilliance of our showrunners, and the loyal support of our great partners at CMT, Hulu and ABC Studios. Most importantly, we owe a special debt of thanks to the ‘Nashville’ fans who propelled the series to an incredible run. We owe it to them to make the sixth season the most exciting and memorable of all.”

Jonathan Jackson (Avery Barclay, and ex-Lucky Spencer, GH) tweeted on the news of the cancellation  “Season 6 will be the final for @NashvilleCMT. I want to thank the fans for their incredible support. We’re going to finish Season 6 strong! I look forward to seeing you all at a concert in the coming year.”

Soap fans are already speculating if Jackson would reprise his role of Lucky on GH if the timing is right for him following the conclusion of Nashville.  

Nashville also stars: Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Kaitlin Doubleday as Jessie Caine, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad and Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad.

It would be so amazing to have JJ back on GH, love him no matter what he does, sing, act, write, he is amazing.so proud of him,

Nashville without Rayna lasted about as long as Dallas without JR.

I’m predicting Lucky Spencer will find his way back to Port Charles in 2018. Most likely during a sweeps month. February would be too soon, so May would be my best guess.

It wasn’t the same on CMT. They tried; I loved the characters and will miss them…

I know, Rebecca. It did make the shock of losing Rayna easier, but the heart of the show seems at half-power. That said, I’m looking forward to seeing handsome Sam Palladio and lovely Clare Bowen sail around true love for one more season. And maybe somebody decent for poor Will.

General Hospital

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?
