Nashville’s sixth and final season, which bows Thursday, Jan. 4 on CMT, will break its 16-episodes season into two parts with the second half airing next summer.
“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,” Kevin Beggs, Chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group, says. “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.”
Nashville’s final season premieres Thursday, Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
