‘Nashville’ fans, you take a sigh of relief. There’s an alternate ending of the series finale — one that does not end with that crazy cliffhanger — and you might get to see it. Here’s all the details!
Praise! Nashville filmed an alternate ending that featured a much better fate for one of our favorite country characters. Yes, there’s a final episode of Nashville that has a happy ending. But will we ever be able to see it?
Lionsgate TV Chief Kevin Beggs revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the show filmed a happy ending of the series finale. The final episode featured Juliette and Avery reuniting. But producers decided to air the cliffhanger version in an attempt to increase the chances of the show getting picked up by another distributor.
The series finale that aired robbed fans of a happy ending between Juliette and Avery. On her way to see Avery and her baby, Juliette’s plane went missing. Gasp!
There is definitely still hope that the show will get picked up for a fifth season on another network, so there might not even be a need for the alternate ending to be released. Fans definitely want more Nashville.
If the show doesn’t get picked up, Kevin said he would find a way for fans to see the other ending.
“I’m sure we would figure out a satisfying way for audiences to see an alternative ending — but it won’t be as good as the ending we have given them,” he said. “In a perfect world, we’d be making this show for many more seasons. Our hope and intention is to have an asset that continues to grow for many years.”
