Two shows that some thought perhaps were on the bubble of being cancelled, were happily not and will live to see another day and another primetime television season!
This afternoon, ABC renewed the country music soap drama Nashville and the Hamptons sudser, Revenge!
Nashville gets its second season and Revenge its third, whose season two cliffhanger finale airs this Sunday at 9PM EST/PST.
According to the Huffington Post, “Although the Connie Britton drama Nashville opened strong with a 2.8 in the 18049 demo, it spent much of the season hovering around a 1.8, so it was considered a bubble show. Still the series was well-received among critics and Britton remains one of TV’s most beloved stars following, Friday Night Lights. The fact that the show’s country music soundtrack continues to sell is another mark in its favor.”
As well as Nashville, the network renewed Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, Last Man Standing, The Middle, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Scandal and Surburgatory.
So are you excited that Nashville and Revenge will return for another season, meaning the primetime soaps are alive and kicking? Weigh-in!
