While the fans of the ABC-TV primetime, country drama “Nashville” were floored by the network’s recent abrupt cancellation of the show, one of the show’s stars, Connie Britton, wasn’t as shocked as the rest of the world.
“I was not necessarily surprised,” recently pronounced the singer, who has portrayed the series’ starlet Rayna Jaymes for the last four seasons, to “Entertainment Tonight.” “I try to really put a silver lining on it and just say, ‘hey, we got four great years out of it,’ and I really value the experience.”
Fear not fans, while the show may be leaving ABC-TV, that doesn’t mean it’s the end for good. As Rare Country reported last week, the show’s production company, LionsGate TV, is shopping the series to other networks and streaming services, trying to find a new home for the show.
When asked about the real life battle her (now former) co-star Hayden Panettiere is going through with postpartum depression, Britton told ET that she hasn’t spoken directly to Panettiere since the show wrapped up filming, but she knows she’s gonna be great.
Connie simply said, “She’s doing great.”
