We’re just five days away from the series finale of TV’s “Nashville.”
Or are we?
Lionsgate TV, the studio behind the canceled ABC show, gave fans some hope on Friday:
Fans have been doing their part, hitting Twitter and other social media with the hashtags #BringBackNashville and #NashCrash. One of the online petitions — this one on change.org, trying to find a new home for “Nashville” — had hit more than 36,000 supporters as of Friday afternoon.
On Wednesday night, during the show’s second-to-last episode (per the current plan), fans and stars of the show worked to build support, and #BringBackNashville wound up trending with more than 100,000 tweets.
On Friday night, fans will try once again to get the momentum going on Twitter.
And the show’s stars share that hope, including Charles Esten, the fan favorite who plays Deacon.
Are “Nashville” fans really ready for the end of #FreakinDeaconFriday?
Not yet, it would seem.
