Did that really just happen?!
Nashville aired its series finale on Wednesday (May 25) night, and in a move that left many fans stunned, the show wrapped up with a major cliffhanger!
According to Deadline, series creator Callie Khouri made the conscious decision to leave a number of loose ends unresolved (including Juliette’s fate!) in the hopes that the country music drama — which was axed by ABC after 4 seasons — will be able to find a home on a different network.
“Nashville fans are the absolute best, and support for the #BringBackNashville campaign has been amazing,” Khouri told the Deadline. “We are so grateful for our extremely loyal following. We have stories left to tell and songs left to sing.”
Meanwhile, Lionsgate TV took to Twitter to assure diehard fans of the series that they’ll get answers eventually.
“#Nashies What a cliffhanger! But we won’t leave you hanging,” promised the production company. “There’s more story to be told. #BringBackNashville.”
Despite Lionsgate’s promise of wrapping things up eventually, some fans of the series were understandably surprised at the decision to end with Juliette’s plane going MIA in the sky. Take a look at some reactions below:
Ending the series on such a huge cliffhanger is an incredibly bold and we’re certainly hoping it pays off for Nashies everywhere. We think we speak for everyone when we say we’ve GOT to know what happens to Juliette!
