If you thought you were prepared for season 5 of Nashville, think again. You haven’t seen anything yet. From the looks of the new trailer, things in Nashville are getting much more intense than we thought was possible. The 30-second clip gives fans a sneak peek into the events of season 5.
The 30-second clip shows Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) inside her private plane when it hits serious turbulence. After seeing Juliette, the clip reveals Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) and the children in bed together watching news of the crash on TV. Although Panettiere is confirmed for season 5, we’re now unsure of in what capacity that will be.
The trailer also reveals a clip of Will (Chris Carmack) talking with another man who is most likely Jakob Fine (Murray Bartlett), a character new to the series. Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) are seen having an intense conversation, while another heart-to-heart is happening between Maddie (Lennon Stella) and Deacon.
Whatever is in store for Nashville, we will have to wait and see. Will Juliette survive the plane crash? Will Maddie’s rekindle her relationship with her family? And will Scarlett and Gunnar survive? What we do know, is the new showrunners will be focusing more on the music and less on the drama.
You can catch the season 5 premiere of Nashville January 5 on CMT.
