For all you #Nashies that can’t wait until Jan. 5, 2017 for the season 5 premiere of the CMT drama, Nashville, you’re in luck. CMT has just released the first trailer to tide you over until then.
But wait, there’s more. As an early Christmas present, CMT will also offer a sneak peek of the first hour of the two-hour season premiere of Nashville on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 9pm ET. So get those DVR’s ready.
Last we left the Nashville crew, it was unknown whether Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) would perish in a plane crash or return safely to her daughter and ex-husband, Avery Barkley (Jonathon Jackson), awaiting at the airport. Thankfully, Hayden will be returning for season 5, so we’ll find out her fate in the premiere. Rayna James (Connie Britton) and Deacon Clayburn (Chip Esten) reunited with their daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) and seemed to be set for a future of happiness. But let’s face it, it’s a drama, no one can be happy for too long.
According to CMT, Season 5 begins with Rayna and Deacon facing a new normal with Maddie now back home and Highway 65 struggling financially. The shocking news about Juliette creates a wave of emotions throughout Nashville and sets Rayna off on a journey of discovery.
In addition, the upcoming season will feature Joseph David-Jones as Clay, Rhiannon Giddens as Hallie Jordan, Jen Richards as Allyson Del Lago, and Cameron Scoggins as Zach Welles in recurring roles.
Check out the trailer for Season 5 and mark your calendars for the one hour sneak peek of Nashville on Thurs., Dec. 15 at 9pm ET on CMT.
