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.

So, what do you think of Nashville adding a trans character to the show? Who would you suggest for the role? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    I don’t know…they ditched Luke and Layla…thought it was budget. Guess not. I don’t see this considering we spent two seasons having Will deal with his identity and fighting to be accepted. Will’s one of my favorite characters but I think just like in the story the more conservative viewers didn’t approve of his character…that’s what I saw when I read some of the boards. And on a country station. Hmmmm. Okay. Should be interesting…these writers are great so hopefully they have their writing tentacles on the pulse of the audience…

    Wow.. I am shocked. how will Nashville and CMT handle this ? Are they changing??? I have loved country music for many years and listened to it, but always knew how it was not accepted in the Country industry…

    Good for the show… Lets hope this continues the change…. #betrue

    I don’t have a problem with having a Transgender on the show, just please no Bruce Gender or Katylin… They need a Real transgender spokesperson not someone looking to be famous for the kardas clan. I sorry to admit that I don’t know many of their names beside Chad Bono and one name Shirley but one of them can really act. I hope they do some research and find a good actor or actress to tackle and represent this very conversational task.

      Sorry for the miss spelling of Chaz Bono name.

    I have no problem with this other than the obvious reason that we don’t really need any major new characters on the canvas. I’ve only known one trans person and she always said she just wanted to be treated like everyone else, not as a token or a gesture of conciliation. I trust the powers behind Nashville to handle this appropriately.
