The CMT debut of Nashville now has an official premiere date. Contrary to headlines about the former ABC drama returning in December (what network debuts anything in December?), it turns out the basic cable network is rolling out the show's fifth season on Jan. 5.
In the meantime, we're hearing Rayna Jaymes is likely to take her final curtain call in season 5. Star Connie Britton has only signed on for about 10 episodes of the new season. One source close to the show insists, however, that they still remain hopeful they'll get her on board for more and that the deal is not yet final. We're hearing costar Hayden Panettiere is fully on board.
