Set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene, NASHVILLE follows Rayna Jaymes, a star at her peak, and Juliette Barnes, who is on the rise. When their record label sends them out on tour together after a hit single, 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.
Season 2 premieres on Wednesday, September 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Will the car crash victims from the Season 1 finale survive? Check out a brand new NASHVILLE promo below:
At a recent TCA session, ABC entertainment president Paul Lee defended the drama-filled seaon finale that featured a car crash, calling the season ending shocker a "sweet cliffhanger… There’s an impending doom that leads you toward the car crash that is very NASHVILLE.
Lee added that in Season 2, Rayna will "really drive plot. That particular rivalry with Connie and Hayden['s characters] is coming to a head. We've only seen a couple of outlines and a script, but we’re really happy with it."
NASHVILLE stars Connie Britton as Rayna, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette, Powers Boothe as Lamar, Charles Esten as Deacon, Eric Close as Teddy, Clare Bowen as Scarlett, Jonathan Jackson as Avery, Sam Palladio as Gunnar, Robert Ray Wisdom as Coleman, Lennon Stella as Maddie, Maisy Stella as Daphne and Chris Carmack as Will.
Dee Johnson, R.J. Cutler, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan are executive producers of NASHVILLE. The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment.
