For fans that are still mourning the loss of their beloved show, Nashville, or can’t get over the unexpected plot twist ending, fear not! The team at ABC’s hit country drama said they have an alternative ending to the show that will leave all questions answered and all people happy.
In Wednesday’s (May 25) series finale episode, the last scene showed Avery (Jonathan Jackson) awaiting Juliette’s (Hayden Panettiere) arrival at the airport when suddenly, he learns that the jet has lost signal and there are no signs of its location anywhere. Leaving fans reeling everywhere, the shocking cliffhanger also gave wind to the notion that the show would soon be returning for a fifth season on another network.
While any news regarding a new season is still unknown, producers originally filmed another ending that shows Avery and Juliette reuniting at the gate with their daughter in a peaceful manner. If Nashville doesn’t come back to the air, Lionsgate plans to find a way to distribute the happy ending to fans in some fashion.
“I’m sure we would figure out a satisfying way for audiences to see an alternative ending — but it won’t be as good as the ending we have given them,” Lionsgate TV executive Kevin Beggs said. “In a perfect world, we’d be making this show for many more seasons. Our hope and intention is to have an asset that continues to grow for many years.”
The drama series was unexpectedly cancelled recently, causing quite the commotion among fans everywhere. #Nashies will just have to wait and see the fate lying ahead for Nashville as the suspense ensues.
