We have added x2 photos of Hayden and the Nashville cast in a Season 6 promo photoshoot…
The country music series Nashville will return for its sixth and final season in January, ending a show that had to handle the jump to another network and the loss of a key star.
Cancelled by ABC after four seasons, Nashville jumped to CMT but creators are now pulling the plug after more than 120 episodes, citing ‘creative’ reasons, reported E!.
The show starring Hayden Panettiere, 28, has produced hits on the Billboard country charts, spawned U.S. tours and earned Connie Britton, 50, both Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.
(Spoiler!) Rayna Jaymes, played by Britton, was killed off the show in the middle of the fifth season. She was the queen of country and also the lead character, which is why fans were so shocked when her character died sitting in a police car after a truck hit her.
The sixth and final 16-episode season of Nashville premieres January 4 and will air in two chunks, with the finale coming this summer.
Nashville is ramping up the drama. The CMT country music drama debuted the first trailer for the upcoming sixth season on Thursday, and it looks like Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) will have a very public onstage breakdown.
In the 30-second teaser, Juliette — rocking an all-black ensemble and diamond teardrop earrings — is livid and she makes it known to the raucous crowd.
“I don’t want your money. I don’t want your attention,” a stewing Juliette spews into the mic, saving the most hurtful zinger for last as she storms offstage: “I sure as hell don’t want your love.”
What prompts Juliette’s uncharacteristic (and sure-to-go-viral) onstage moment? A brief glimpse of an emotional Juliette does flash over her breakdown. Could that be connected to it at all?
Elsewhere, several Nashville favorites — Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Will (Chris Carmack) — will be rocking brand new ‘dos in the new season. Did you catch Gunnar’s platinum blonde look? What will his ex, Scarlett (Clare Bowen), think of the dramatic transformation?
Meanwhile, Deacon (Charles Esten), Jessie (Kaitlin Doubleday), Avery (Jonathan Jackson), Maddie (Lennon Stella) and Daphne (Maisy Stella) continue to juggle romance, friendship, family and fame. Watch the trailer below.
Hayden Panettiere was spotted spending quality time with fiance Wladimir Klitschko in Munich on Wednesday. The two looked content as they walked side-by-side along the streets of Germany. At 6ft 6in Wladimir towered over his lady love Hayden who is only 5ft tall. The couple’s adorable two-year-old daughter Kaya did not join her parents on the walk around the city…
Of all the cool things about her Nashville home – from the cozy nursery and pool to the music “jam room” – Hayden Panettiere may be most enamored with…the fish tanks. “It’s my passion! You will never see anybody geek out as much as me about fish,” the Nashville star tells PEOPLE.
“The fish tanks are my happy place.” In fact, hanging above one of two enormous aquariums in her 4,500 square-foot house is a framed sign that reads: “This is My Happy Place”. For Panettiere, 27, who shares the home with partner Wladimir Klitschko and their two-year-old daughter, Kaya, her beloved fish, coral and even sea anemone have long been a source of comfort. “I could literally sit on a stool in front of my fish tank and just stare at it and watch,” she says.
“It makes me feel peace. It makes me feel calm, and I can feel my blood pressure going down. I know some people might think it’s crazy but they actually interact with you. It’s kind of like being a mom – in a different way!”
Another budding fish-fan? Her daughter, Kaya. “All she wants to see when I FaceTime her is fish – she says, ‘Show me the fish!’,” says Panettiere, smiling.“She loves Nemo, Dory, and all the fish!”While the actress regularly rescues animals and fosters dogs before placing them in homes, she feels an actress’s life doesn’t lend itself to raising pets. “Sitting in a trailer is not the life they deserve,” she says. “So, fish are perfect for me!”
