Scream VI also sees the return of Hayden Panettiere‘s horror movie-loving Scream 4 character and fan favorite Kirby Reed, who was last seen twitching in a pool of her own blood after being stabbed by Rory Culkin’s villainous Charlie Walker.
“She’s come a long way,” says Panettiere of Kirby. “What happened to her has obviously impacted her life, and it sends her in a certain direction, but she’s still the same old Kirby at the heart of it. She’s just a little older, a little wiser, but just as spitfire-y, and snarky, and all that good stuff.”
The actress admits that it was a little strange entering a situation in which she was both a veteran of the franchise and a new kid to the current Scream set-up.
“Yeah, I felt a little left out,” says the Heroes and Nashville star. “It’s true. I did feel a little like I had to find my way back into the new group because that crew had done the prior film. But they were all so welcoming. It was interesting, they made me part of their family that I had already been a part of. [Laughs] So it was like an estranged aunt came back into the fold!“
The Montreal-shot Scream VI will also see the return to the franchise of Hayden Panettiere, who became a fan favorite for her performance as Kirby Reed in Scream 4.
“She was wonderful. She was really great,” says Gillett. “It was fun to have her around to tell us about Scream 4. She had a lot of great stories she got to share. It’s that Scream family; it’s continuing to grow for us.”
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…
