“Shows always move forward ... What people will find as they process their feelings—and maybe fans will be angry at us or at her for this happening—but they’ll find the fabric of the show more than holds,” Hersokovitz says. “It’s still this vibrant passionate creative world of people who live their lives in a way that has a fire beneath it. That’s always been the heart of Nashville.”

Adding “the show is completely intact,” the showrunner also reveals the best episodes of Nashville are yet to come.

Goodbyes led to tears on the latest episode of Nashville, and the beloved cast was led to social media to react.

“I think the best episode we’ve done this year is the one that follows her funeral. I would put that episode against any I’ve done in my entire career,” he says. “It’s an astonishing symphonic beautiful tribute to this woman and human connection and grief. That’s one I hope nobody misses. It really goes to the heart of what it means for people to be truly connected to each other.”

Nashville airs Thursdays at 9/8c on CMT.
