The fun starts early for Nashville fans this year!
Though the show doesn’t officially debut on CMT until the new year on Jan. 5, the network announced today (Dec. 1) that they’ll be giving fans a sneak-preview of the two-hour premiere on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 9 p.m.
Along with the announcement, CMT released a new trailer to tease the upcoming season. Just as fans have become accustomed to, there’s plenty of Southern soap opera drama to hold one’s attention.
Besides hinting at what’s next for Gunnar (Sam Palladio), Scarlett (Clare Bowen), Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten), the teaser ominously reveals that the plane carrying Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) has lost all communication with ground control in the sky. No biggie.
Long story short, the trailer packs multiple punches for the fan favorite characters. All Nashville episodes will stream on Hulu the day after airing on CMT. You can check out the first episode of season 5 on Dec. 15 on CMT and Hulu. For now, catch the Nashville trailer above.
