We have added screencaps from episodes 1, 2 & 3 of Nashville to the gallery…
A new 30 second trailer has been released for the upcoming fifth season of Nashville. If you haven’t see the season 4 finale, then we suggest you stop reading as this article contains spoilers. If you have seen it carry on to find out more about the new season.
Featuring the first footage from the new season, the teaser confirms that Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) was involved in a plane crash. Avery (Jonathan Jackson) is seen being informed that something has happened to Juliette’s plane and Rayna (Connie Britton) finds out about the crash while watching TV with her family.
The teaser also shows a rocky path ahead for Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) as they try to become a couple once again, temptation for Will (Chris Carmack) in the form of a new love interest, and Maddie (Lennon Stella) dealing with the behaviour that led her to break away from her family in season 4.
We’re not too worried about Juliette’s fate seeing as Hayden Panettiere is signed on for the full season. Could it be the catalyst she and Avery need to patch things up?
Nashville debuts on CMT Thursday 5th January 2017. A UK air date has yet to be confirmed.
The cast also took some promo photos for the new season, check out the video…
“Nashville” is coming back to life! The country music soap opera has been renewed by CMT and “Nashies” everywhere are rejoicing knowing their voices have been heard. Drumming up a huge Twitter campaign — using the not so subtle hashtag #BringBackNashville — the show’s dedicated fanbase ignited a social media firestorm following the ABC series’ frustrating finale cliffhanger.
“Nashville” was never a ratings juggernaut, but it did develop quite a beloved following over the years. These “Nashies” did not want to be left in the dark as to whether or not Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) died in a plane crash. However, even though the show has been renewed for Season 5, clarity on whether this means Juliette lives on may not be happy news.
Showrunner Dee Johnson is not retuning, nor has it been confirmed which cast members will be signing on with the show’s new home at CMT. It’s hard to imagine the show could continue without Rayna James (Connie Britton), but it’s not her character’s life that was left in the balance at the end of Season 4. Panettiere might’ve asked the writers for that kind of tragic cliffhanger ending for time to mull over whether she wants to return to the series, or not.
