Season 5B of Nashville has been released!
At the end of the tonight’s midseason finale of Nashville, CMT unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming second half of Season 5, which provides a ton of clues about what the future holds for the show’s main characters.
After wrapping fittingly the story of the immediate aftermath of Rayna James’ death in tonight’s finale by everyone from her inner circle — her grieving husband Deacon (Charles Esten) and daughters Maddie and Daphne (Lennon and Maisy Stella) as well as her friends/Highway 65 musicians Scarlett (Claire Bowen) & Gunnar (Sam Palladino), Juliette (Hayden Penettiere) & Avery (Jonathan Jackson) and Will (Chris Carmack) — coming together to help finish her final album, the show dropped a bombshell in the final seconds when Scarlett told Gunnar that she was pregnant and did not know who the father was. (She had been double dating her on-and-off boyfriend and her music video director at one point.) The trailer gives information how that story — a throwback to the famous Friends season finale cliffhanger with Rachel’s positive pregnancy test — will develop. (Hint: It involves a paternity test.)
