ABC and Lionsgate Television had been at odds over an episode order, given the expensive nature of the series and a loss of tax breaks for shooting in Nashville. Surprisingly, the two sides agreed on a full 22 episode season.
With the renewal of Nashville, only 8 scripted series have their fates left up in the air, many of them from CBS. The list of question marks: Bad Teacher, The Crazy Ones, Dracula, Friends with Better Lives, Last Man Standing, The Mentalist, and Parenthood. While CBS has yet to announce the fates of Hostages and Intelligence, it can be assumed both have been cancelled. The remaining 6; however, will have to wait a bit longer.
