Rayna James and Juliette Barnes will be back, y’all! Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere will be returning for ‘Nashville’ season 5 when it comes back on CMT. Get the details!
As Nashville moves to CMT after being cancelled on ABC, the show will be keeping its main stars. Connie Britton, 49, and Hayden Panettiere, 26, are set to return for season 5 of the hit show. Plus, find out who else will be coming back to Nashville!
Connie and Hayden will be returning to Nashville for season 5, our sister site TVLine reports. Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella and Chris Carmack are expected to be back when the show returns as well.
This big news comes after it was revealed that Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples, who play Luke and Layla, would not be returning as series regulars.
The last episode of Nashville that aired on ABC ended with one shocking cliffhanger. While on her way back to reunite Avery and her baby, Juliette’s plane went missing.
Producers filmed an alternate ending, but decided to air the cliffhanger in hopes of increasing its chances of getting picked up. Nashies went to work and “#BringBackNashville” became a worldwide trending topic after the finale. And guess what? The fans and producers’ hard work paid off! Bless you, CMT!
Nashville creator Callie Khouri said the show had “stories left to tell and songs left to sing,” and now the cast and crew is going to get their chance to continue the story!
