Connie Britton Talks End of ‘Nashville’ on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ [Watch]
Fans of the television drama Nashville had their hearts broken last week with the news that the series would not be renewed by ABC. Actress Connie Britton, who plays the lead role of country superstar Rayna Jaymes, visited Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday night (May 16) and talked about the show, saying it was an "end of an era."
“It’s bittersweet, you know,” Britton told Meyers. “Look, I always feel like to have four years on anything, you can never take that for granted and you know it’s been a really great run. But, it’s nice to feel like, ‘Okay, we kind of ended it and now we’re gonna move on and hopefully I’ll be able to do something else fun and great.”
Britton has been entrenched in the Nashville community since the show first aired four years ago — she reveals that she lives in Music City 10 months out of the year. She said she has "basically raised" her son, who is 5 years old, in Tennessee.
“I think he’s just gonna ditch me now because he’s like, ‘I’m staying in Nashville. These people are cool. I’m learning how to play the drums. See ya later,'” Britton says. “He’s like, 'LA people are really weird.'"
While there is still talk of the show possibly being saved by other networks, Britton didn't offer any updates. She did say that her castmates are devastated and that it's "a bummer for the town," too.
The May 25 episode of Nashville will mark the series finale.
