Five-time Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, GH, Avery, Nashville) is back in music city as one of the series regulars of Nashville when the primetime series premieres in its new home on cabler CMT this coming January 5th.

The Nashville gang including: Jackson, Sam Palladio (Gunnar), Claire Bowen (Scarlett), Charles Esten (Deacon), Maisy and Lennon Stella (Maddie and Daphne) were included in the first behind-the-scenes promo shared via CMT’s social media.

Nashville is currently in production shooting all new episodes,  and that is happy news for Nashies who can’t wait till the January premiere!  New co-showrunner and EP Marshalll Herskovitz and Nashville creator and EP Callie Khouri also amped up the excitement for the new season, which is being presented as the “best season yet”.

Will it live up to the hype now that the show is more streamlined with less cast members?

Watch the promo here, and then let us know if you think season five will be a good one out of the gate in the comment section below!

If they can remember Character and music.. first..and tell a story. People fall in love with the Characters. Love Country music,it’s Nashville not LA, Miami or Detroit. Not plot driven/message driven. Characters and relationships not plots, It will be a winner.

Oh, Rose, you sound refreshingly like a lone voice in the wilderness. You’re exactly right, of course. Do you remember the live-action Disney movies of yesteryear, like the ones with Hayley Mills? Those movies, too, are classics because they spent the time–and audiences wanted them to — in developing characters we could care about. No CGI effects, no car chases or explosions every five minutes. Just people we can care about and/or identify with. Let’s hope our NASHVILLE remembers it, too.

I’ve posted my feelings about this before but as thrilled that I am that Nashville is returning, I’m less than thrilled with the changes they’ve already made. I really…really…liked Luke and will miss him a lot. Layla was a very well-written character on so many levels; I’ll miss her presence too. Not sure what’s happenibpng with Connie Britton. I guess if they space out her episodes her absence won’t be as glaring but still she’s the heart and center of the show. Finally, not impressed with the new characters they’re adding from the little I know. Still, will definately tune in (no tune pun intended) and do so with an open mind. Bring back Luke!!!!

I agree, Rebecca1. I also feel that Layla/Aubrey was one of the best singers, very distinctive. But I have the same issue with GENERAL HOSPITAL. Too many new or unnecessary characters at the expense of others…and us.

Sigh…very frustrating. We get attached to “people” and poof!

Connie Britton should be there–is she still an executive producer?

Always been a Country Music fan! I love the show and am glad it’s coming back, just hope it’s on a channel we all can watch. Thank you Clare Bowen for your story on why you cut your hair, you are beautiful either way.

It’s on The Country Music Channel, CMT. Are you in the U.S.? You should get it…if not it’s also on Hulu ( I think the next day and probably with a subscription).

Whatever happened to the homeless man Scarlett was working with outside her office? I would like to see him brought back. He had an interesting story line.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
