The holidays have come early for fans of Nashville: Canadian broadcaster W Network has released the trailer for Season 5, and also announced a sneak peek of the first hour of the two-hour premiere on Thurs., Dec. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The season itself begins on Jan. 5, 2017.
Nashies (as the show’s fans are often called) have been waiting patiently for new footage of the show since it was cancelled earlier in 2016. American network CMT resurrected the show after Nashies put up a fight to get it back on the air.
Nashville is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene, and follows Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere). Both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business.
Music City can mean so many things to different people. In Nashville, musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fuelled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and are doing everything in their power to stay on top.
The new season begins with Rayna and Deacon (Charles Esten) facing a new normal with Maddie (Lennon Stella) 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.
