CMT's Nasvhille is coming out for one final curtain call.

All good things must come to an end, so Nashville will take its final episodes to season six with the series ending after its run in 2018.

CMT has now confirmed that Nashville will be axed after its forthcoming sixth season, which is due to premiere in January.

Cancelled by ABC after four seasons, "Nashville" jumped to CMT but creators are now pulling the plug after more than 120 episodes, citing "creative" reasons. Britton's character was killed off in season five. The decision was considered a shocker after Lionsgate hired thirtysomething producers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick to serve as showrunners on a potential fifth season (replacing Dee Johnson). A month later, however, CMT resurrected the series for a new season with most of the cast intact after a major outcry from fans. Star Connie Britton left the series during season 5, which saw her character, Rayna James, die from a auto crash. "And we want to return the facor with a final season that celebrates all the joys and passions, twists and turns - and incredible music! - that made "Nashville" such an exciting journey for the last six years". The series is produced by Lionsgate and Opry Entertainment. "We owe it to them to make the sixth season the most exciting and memorable of all". After all, this is Nashville.
