ABC’s hit show “Nashville” has officially been renewed for a third season.

The network announced just after Midnight Saturday that the show will remain apart of their primetime season from 2014 to 2015.

Officials have yet to say whether or not the show will be filmed in Nashville. But a source close to the show told News 2 the city, state and Ryman Hospitality are working out the details to keep the show in Music City.

An announcement on the location is expected in the coming days.

In a statement, the CEO of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corporation Butch Spyridon said, “Gaining a third season further enhances the value of the show. The impact has been immeasurable already, across the globe, and we believe season three increases that impact exponentially. My thanks to the governor, the mayor and Ryman Hospitality for all of the support. “

Last year the show received $12.5 million from the Tennessee state government and $500,000 from Metro Nashville, but with recent Tennessee state budget reductions, the amount of money offered by the state is likely far less than the tax credit package of the previous year.

There is no word yet on if and how much the state or city will support the show this coming season.

The season 2 finale of “Nashville” airs Wednesday, May 14 at 9 p.m. on News 2.

The following ABC shows have also been renewed for the 2014-2015 season:

“Castle” (season 7)
