Looks like another young woman wil enter the life of Avery Barclay (Jonathan Jackson) on ABC’s Nashville! In a casting news out on Wednesday from TV Line, Boardwalk Empire’s Meg Steedle has joined the cast of the Music City drama, which has its midseason finale tonight at 10PMEST.
Steedle will make her debut in the second half of the season when the series returns in March of 2016. Apparentely, Meg will guest-star in an episode as a single mom that Avery takes a liking to after they have a first encounter. Steedle took to Twitter to post a photo outside a famous Nashville series landmark relating: “Can you tell which set I’m on?? The filter is a hint.”
Meanwhile, Juliette played by Hayden Panettiere is still the mother of Avery’s child, Cadence. Currently, he is raising the baby by his lonesome, since Juliette has been battling with her inner demons, and Panettiere was off the series recovering from postpartum depression. The second half of the fourth season of Nashville kicks off on March 16th.
So, would you like to see Jonathan Jackson have a new on-screen squeeze … or, do you hope when Juliette returns, she and Avery can work things out and somehow become a happy family? Comment below!
