The musical drama begins its sixth and final seasonon Thursday, Jan. 4 on CMT, and only ET was invited to the set for a first look at what the beloved series has in store for fans. 

“These last two years, in some sense, have felt like a bonus,” Jonathan Jackson, who plays Avery Barkley, says of the show’s second life. After a cancellation by ABC after season four, Nashville was picked up by the cable network in 2016. Today, the creators are preparing to give fans the sendoff they deserve. Read on for new details straight from the cast about what to expect from your favorite characters in season six.

Juliette Barnes: 

It wouldn’t be a Juliette storyline without a little meltdown, and Hayden Panettiere delivers right off the bat. 

“She’s trying to make a comeback in her career, but she’s not completely ready for it,” Jackson tells ET of his on-screen love. “Avery has this sense of, ‘Maybe we should postpone this’ and she ends up going out there and kind of having a meltdown on stage and reacting to some of the negativity from the fans.”

“The aftermath of that is very intense for her, obviously,” he adds. The scenes that follow even include a cameo from ET’s own Nancy O’Dell, who appears on screen to report on the fictitious scandal. See an exclusive sneak peek in the player below.
