VARIETY.COM: “Nashville” is coming to an end for the second time.

The country music drama will end after its upcoming sixth season on CMT, Variety has learned.

“All of us on ‘Nashville’ are so incredibly grateful to the show’s fans, who convinced CMT to give us a chance to keep telling the story of these remarkable characters,” said series executive producer Marshall Herskovitz. “And we want to return the favor with a final season that celebrates all the joys and passions, twists and turns — and amazing music! — that made ‘Nashville’ such an exciting journey for the last six years.”

“Nashville” is set against the backdrop of the titular city’s music scene and follows the lives of country music superstars as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. It stars Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Kaitlin Doubleday as Jessie Caine, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad and Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad. In addition, Season 6 features Rhiannon Giddens as Hallie Jordan and Cameron Scoggins as Zach Welles in recurring roles. Connie Britton previously starred as Rayna Jaymes but left the show during its fifth season.

The series is executive produced by Herskovitz, Ed Zwick, Steve Buchanan, and Callie Khouri, who created the series. The series is produced by Lionsgate and Opry Entertainment. “Nashville” ranks as the highest-rated and most-watched show in CMT’s history, averaging 2.1 million viewers in Nielsen’s Live+7 ratings.

“Nashville” ran on ABC for its first four seasons before being cancelled in 2016. CMT revived the show for a fifth season, with Season 5 kicking off in January 2017.

The first promos for Season 6 of Nashville have been released. Check them out below and remember to watch in January.

The most recent episode of Nashville sees Budweiser celebrating LGBT Pride Month in a groundbreaking way: by signing Will Lexington to appear in a new spot for the brand as “the pinnacle of masculinity.”

In the storyline—which sprung in part from a CMT and Budweiser deal during last year’s upfronts—the show’s openly gay country singer, Will Lexington (played by Chris Carmack), is wooed by Budweiser to become a brand spokesman. In two weeks, he films the commercial, which airs in its entirety on the show.
