Earlier: Nashville, the TV show, is no more
While The Tennessean is reporting that the full cast will return for this next season, Nashville Business Journal says that there were rumors flying around that some of the lead actors would be absent in a fifth season of Nashville.
The deal was helped along by incentives given to the producers by the local and state governments. Metro will fork over $1 million, if the Metro Council approves it, while the state has promised $8.5 million. They justify these expenditures by citing the jobs and other economic boost given by keeping the show filmed in Nashville.
