Rayna Jaymes must be smiling down on her former CMT series, because Nashville will be back for a sixth season, CMT announced Tuesday.
Season 6 of the country-music drama will consist of 16 episodes, premiering in early 2018.
Nashville made its official CMT debut in January to a total audience of 1.2 million, before floating down toward the 800,000-viewer range. But since Rayna’s death, the audience has ticked up, settling back in around a million viewers.
CMT also revealed that the drama’s midseason premiere, which will pick up a few months after Rayna’s death, will air on Thursday, June 1 at 9/8c. (Press PLAY below for a juicy preview of what’s ahead.)
