Can fans guess how many signatures the petition to renew Nashville has? Hint: it's a lot.
Last Tuesday, the petition to bring the series back to television gained more than 159,000 signatures. And as of Saturday, there are more than 168,000.
With 9,000 signatures in just a few days, it's safe to say that fans have not given up on trying to bring the show back to life. Even if it doesn't return to ABC, perhaps it could wind up on a different network like CMT or Hulu.
In a report from Deadline, showrunner Calli Khouri mentioned that there might still be hope for the series to come back in the future.
"Nashville fans are the absolute best, and support for the #BringBackNashville campaign has been amazing," Khouri said. "We are so grateful for our extremely loyal following. We have stories left to tell and songs left to sing."
In fact, the producers already seem to have ideas on what could happen in a potential fifth season, according to Lionsgate Television Chairman Kevin Beggs.
"We want to thank creator Callie Khouri and showrunner Dee Johnson for their inspiration and guidance through tonight's exciting season finale, and know that more of the Nashville story is waiting to be told," Beggs said.
It's pretty safe to say that the series could use some closure after that cliffhanger ending with Juliette's flight. She was about to see Avery where it appears that they might try to work things out. But unfortunately, it turned out that there was a call in distress on the plane ride with no word on what exactly went wrong-- or if Juliette's even alive.
Only time will tell if an answer to this big moment will get resolved or not.
