Another new face will be joining the cast of TV’s country music drama Nashville.
According to Deadline, actress Katrina Norman will be joining the cast as a reoccurring character for the remainder of season 5. Norman, who previously appeared in the films No Strings Attached and 17 Again, will play Polly, a “stunning, authentic and confident road manager for a popular musician.” It’s unclear how her plot line will intertwine with the existing characters, but you can always expect some tension and drama when a new face comes to town.
After the [SPOILER ALERT!] stunning death of lead character Rayna Jaymes, the characters of Nashville have been dealing with their own personal dilemmas. Deacon is picking up the pieces after her death and trying to keep her label, Highway 65, from complete collapse. Daughter Maddie is celebrating the rise of her career, while her sister Daphne is struggling to cope without her mom. And that’s only the half of it.
With Nashville‘s move to CMT, ratings have once again been on the rise. Some fans have voiced their disappointment with the lack of music in each episode. But the network has already showed its confidence in the series by renewing it for season 6.
You can catch the mid-season premiere of Nashville on CMT tonight, June 1.
