In an unexpected, fan-driven twist, “Nashville” will be back on TV come January 5 — hallelujah.
The reason this is so exciting is because the revival came about largely because the fans, aka Nashies, were so upset by “Nashville”s sudden cancellation. So, in order to get their favorite music-drama back, they went to social media pleading for someone to pick up season five. And, like a knight on a white horse, CMT arrived to save the day.
As it turns out, the revival wasn’t only an answer to prayer for the fans, but for the cast members. To them, the fact that so many Nashies went to bat for the show means the world to them, so they took to Instagram to say thank you.
