After four seasons on ABC, it looks like it may be the swan song for Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Nashville won’t return for season five, ABC Radio has learned, and the May 25 season finale of the drama set in the country music capitol of the world will be the show’s last episode.
The series starring Connie Britton, Hayden Panetierre and Charles Esten has been responsible for a sizable boom in tourism in real-life Music City, especially at locales often featured on the show like the Bluebird Café. It’s also moved more than five million songs from its soundtrack through its association with Big Machine Records and spawned several sold-out tours by the cast.
