EXCLUSIVE: Connie Britton Talks 'Nashville' Cancellation, Hayden Panettiere's Battle With Postpartum Depressio

By
Connie Britton is looking on the bright side of things.
ET caught up with the 49-year-old actress at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday night, who talked candidly about her ABC show, Nashville, getting canceled on Thursday.
"You know, I was not necessarily surprised," Britton admitted. "And, so, I try to really put a silver lining on it and just say, 'Hey, we got four years out of it and I really really value the experience."
She also didn't shut down the possibility of the show coming online, or continuing in another shape or form.
"You never know," she commented.
Britton also gave us an update on her co-star, Hayden Panettiere, who revealed on Thursday that she's taking "time to reflect holistically" on her health and life following news of the cancellation of the show. The 26-year-old actress has been open about her battle with postpartum depression after she and fiancée Wladimir Klitschko welcomed their first child together, daughter Kaya, in December 2014.
"I haven't [spoken to Panettiere] since we wrapped but I know she's gonna be great," Britton said. "She's doing great."
Last week, a source on the Nashville set told ET that a few of the cast members "seemed pretty blindsided" by the show's cancellation. Still, the source said that nobody blames Panettiere and her personal struggles.
"She probably just needed more help," the source said. "And her heart wasn't in it to focus on the show."
