Nashville Boss on Filming Without Hayden

DEADLINE: The storyline of Juliette’s postpartum emotional struggles plays eerily realistic. Was it informed by Hayden Panettiere’s real-life issues?
JOHNSON: Absolutely not. We incorporated Hayden’s pregnancy into the storyline last season, but we knew Juliette would have issues with motherhood and had always planned for her to struggle with her demons afterwards, including postpartum depression.

DEADLINE: How are you proceeding with filming the season without Hayden? Have you had to adjust storylines?
JOHNSON: It’s not the entire season, it’s just for now. And yes, we’ve had to make adjustments but it’s not uncommon for shows to have to make such accommodations when real life intervenes.

Hayden & Postpartum Depression

It’s reported that Hayden has voluntarily checked herself into a treatment centre, to get support for her postpartum depression. Hayden gave birth to her daughter Kaya ten months ago and has openly admitted to suffering with the condition.

Hayden’s father Skip told Life & Style: “She will be fine“.

A source added that the 26-year-old had been receiving outpatient treatment for weeks, but Hayden decided to admit herself to a facility in Malibu when she recognised how serious her issues were.

Hayden we wish you well, always. You’re an inspiation to us all!
