9 May 10th, 2013 NASHVILLE and REVENGE Renewed For Another Season By ABC!


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!

    LOVE Revenge!!
    As for Nashville, it is getting better, it was overwhelming boring with tons of music and little story..

    I love them both and am thrilled that they’re both renewed. Never found Nashville boring; was hooked from the start…great storylines and characters… and I think the music is great!

    I love Revenge!!! I’m hoping that Body of Proof wasn’t cancelled. Nashville was OK (can do without so much music) but Body of Proof is a much better show. I hope ABC thinks twice.

    Just noticed they renewed Scandal – one of the worst of the new shows. Yuck!

    YEZZZZ!!!! REVENGE is back for another season! Although a lot of people found season 2 off the track I liked it very much and enjoyed every episode this season and made my sunday nights fun to watch tv! Once Upon A Time was less execiting and getting boring at times wanting me to push the fast forward button often which never happened while watching Revenge! So Revenge it will for another year! Great!

    I love Nashville and Revenge, so I’m really happy to hear that they’ve been renewed. I probably won’t be able to watch their new seasons live this fall though, because I work evenings at DISH. I’ll have to see them on my DISH Hopper instead. I already set it to always record ABC’s primetime shows, including Nashville and Revenge, so I’ll be able to see the shows even if I forget to set timers for them.

    revenge’s openly gay creator kelley stepped down from revenge most probably bec of its low ratings. New showrunner of revenge needs to bring more racially diverse chars as cast members who are treated w/ the same care as the white chars. There are too many white chars on revenge. While ashley is the only char of color who is a cast member. Char of color ashley is of lower economic status compared to the white chars. Typical from hollywood. And all the help of victoria are women of color. These kind of portrayals on revenge has hurt their ratings. New showrunner needs to create more chars of color who are billed as cast members! The lack of diversity for a ny based soap opera like revenge is pathetic.
