Nashville fans are about to have the best. Friday. EVER. Though we tried to soothe the sting with four shows to watch post-finale, ABC broke the collective hearts of the shows鈥 enthusiasts the world over with its May announcement that it would be cancelling the hit series. Big news came regarding that decision today, however, and we鈥檒l leave it to star Jonathan Jackson to tell you himself:

Thank you, #Nashies #NashvilleIsBack

A post shared by Jonathan Jackson (@jonathanjacksonhq) on

鈥淣ashville is back!鈥 he says in the above vid, 鈥淭hanks to all the Nashies out there. God bless.鈥

Eeeeeee! Apparently, the power of social media was far too great to be ignored by TV execs, who have officially decided to renew the series for season five, albeit on another network: CMT. Better still? They鈥檒l also be available for same-day viewage on Hulu.

Using hashtags like #BringBackNashville and circulating petitions, fans鈥 voices were heard loud and clear by the CMT network execs, who said in a statement that it was the aforementioned 鈥淣ashies鈥 that directly impacted their choice to pick up the show.

鈥淐MT heard the fans. The wave of love and appreciation they have unleashed for Nashville has been overwhelming,鈥 CMT President Brian Philips explained. 鈥淲e see our fans and ourselves in this show and we will treasure it like no other network. Nashville belongs on CMT.鈥

Considering country music is practically a character in and of itself, we kinnnndda鈥 have to concur.

While it鈥檚 unclear if the cast will be returning in its entirety (lead star Hayden Panetierre has famously taken prior leaves from the show due to bouts of postpartum depression), or when the new reboot will premiere, in the meantime, we鈥檒l leave you with this excited tweet from star Claire Bowen (who totally inspired us with the sweet story behind her pixie cut).

See you soon, indeed, Claire!

Do you think the CMT reboot will be as good as the original? Let us know over @BritandCo!
