Casting Updates

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere are both poised to return to the CMT-bound Nashville in Season 5, TVLine has learned exclusively. Also expected back for the 22-episode season are co-stars Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella and Chris Carmack. A Lionsgate rep declined to comment for this story.


To use a phrase popular with one of Nashville‘s main characters, it’s wheels up for Luke and Layla when the country-music drama returns for a fifth season. Series regulars Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples will not be with the show when it makes its CMT debut, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Lionsgate, which produces the series, declined to comment.



Sources tell THR that the duo will likely be the only departures as talks with all the remaining series regulars are going well including Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere.
