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… Read more »

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?

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
