When Nashville begins its season 5 run on its new home, cable outlet CMT, there will definitely be some changes.
One intriguing bit of casting news comes from TV Guide, whose sources reveal that the music city soapy drama is looking to add a transgender character to the canvas.
While there is limited information available, apparently the trans woman will play a significant role in Juliette’s (Hayden Panettiere) recovery from the plane crash that left viewers with a major cliffhanger during season 4 while the series was on ABC.
The report goes on to allude to the fact that the plane crash is going to leave Juliette with a significant impact on her personal and professional life. In fact, one should not be surprised if Juliette might not ever step on to the stage again.
