CMT announced that Nashville will return for a 16-episode season early next year. CMT of course grabbed the country music drama after it was canceled by ABC.

Early next year may seem like a long way off for those dedicated Nashies, but CMT is offering them a midseason premiere June 1.

And Syfy’s The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman’s bestselling novels, comes back with 13 episodes next year. The show, about a group of 20-something magicians in training, is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
