Nashville Cast

ABC/Bob D'Amico

Praise the country music gods, y'all! Nashville is still alive and kicking!

Sing it with us: Yaaaaasssssss!

ABC's southern soap has been renewed for season four, E! News has learned. This renewal news comes as quite the relief for fans, after last year's last-minute reprieve from the network after days of uncertainty. But it's official: we will continue to be blessed with the gem that is Connie Britton (and her perfect, perfect hair) for at least one more season of happy highs, emotional lows and at least one more album's worth of catchy, country tunes.

Nashville stars Britton as country music queen Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, her rival-turned-label-mate and Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Rayna's epic love.

Throughout season three, fans have watched as Rayna and Deacon finally, after years of back-and-forth, get together, just as he discovered he had stage four liver cancer due to his years of suffering from alcoholism. Juliette spent this season dealing with her unplanned pregnancy, which turned out to be a blessing as it was the catalyst for Juliette and her ex Avery (Jonathan Jackson) to get back together and get married to start their family.

In the emotional season finale, airing next week, Deacon finally gets his liver transplant from his sister, and in promos for the emotional episode, it's revealed that he proposes to Rayna before his big surgery! Ah, the tears! Plus, Avery finally takes action against an increasingly-wildly erratic Juliette, believing her to be suffering from postpartum depression. While we can't even try to predict what's going to happen during the hour, we can almost certainly bet the episode is going to end on a cliffhanger. It's the Nashville way, y'all!

And now we know we're getting a whole new season! Is this a great day or what, huh?

The Nashville season three finale airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
