Nashville‘s Juliette seems to have awakened from her Movement for Coherent Philosophy-induced stupor! Praise Reba!
“The back half of Season 6 is really intense,” star Chris Carmack previews in a freshly released sneak peek at the remainder of the CMT drama’s final season. And the first footage from the series’ upcoming episodes backs him up.
Let’s start with Ms. Barnes, who apparently ditches her peasant dress, returns from Bolivia and immediately begins the work of dismantling Darius’ mind-control empire. “You control people by fear and intimidation,” she near-yells at him; at another point, Ju holds a press conference in front of the cult’s headquarters and promises to “pursue this as long as it takes.” (Feisty Juliette is SO much better than brainwashed Juliette, yes?)
Elsewhere in the video:
* Deacon goes off on his father, Gideon — played by St. Elsewhere vet Ronny Cox — while Maddie and Daphne look on in horror. (Mia Maestro, who, like Cox, will recur in the second half of the season, can be seen in some of Juliette’s scenes.)
* Gunnar watches Avery and Alannah canoodle… but they don’t know he can see them.
* Scarlett is called in to help when Sean, her veteran friend from the horse farm, holes up at his house with a gun.
* Brad sweet-talks Daphne, who’s a contestant in his televised country-music singing competition, but it’s pretty clear that he does so mainly to get under Deacon’s skin.
* Members of the Nashville cast — including Charles Esten and Hayden Panettiere — give their thoughts on episodes to come.
Nashville returns Thursday, June 7, at 9/8c. Press PLAY on the video above to get a taste of the lead-up to the July 26 series finale!

I’ve added a handful of photos of Clare from the Nashville Farewell UK Tour from her live performances this week in Manchester and London. Enjoy!
It’s hard to believe, but Nashville is about to tune its guitar and step onstage for its final bow. In this exclusive video, the CMT drama’s cast prepares viewers for the lead-up to the series finale.
“There was magic in the very beginning,” Charles Esten says. “There’ll be magic in the end.”
Esten is joined in the clip by co-stars Hayden Panettiere, Claire Bowen, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Chris Carmack and Lennon and Maisy Stella, all of whom speak about why they think the show has connected with viewers over the course of six seasons.
“They’re very human stories,” Panettiere says. “There’s been a lot of love there, and a lot of respect.”
Nashville returns with its final midseason premiere on Thursday, June 7, at 9/8c. Press PLAY on the video above to watch the Nashies wax nostalgic, then hit the comments: What’s the Number One thing you want to see play out on screen before Nashville strums its final chord?
Clare, Brandon, and a big chunk of our favorite show’s cast of Nashville were at the Grand Ole Opry last night for their one and only US farewell show. I have added some photos to the gallery. It makes me sad but also excited for the future of this great cast. Enjoy.
“The cast of ‘Nashville’ have become tremendous ambassadors and representatives of a city that they now love. They carry with them the spirit of the city and its music,” said Steve Buchanan, President, Opry Entertainment, previously. “The 2018 UK Tour will be bittersweet for our cast of amazing actors, singers and songwriters as they share the stage together for one last farewell to the fans.”

It won’t be long before the song is over. CMT today set a June 7 midseason return date for Nashville, which is in its final season. And the final curtain will fall on the countrified soap with a series finale set for July 26. Watch a promo for the beginning of the end below.
CMT cued up the sixth and last season of Nashville on January 4 and drew the series’ best L+3 numbers since its S5 midseason premiere in early June 2017. Now in its second season on CMT, which picked up the show a month after ABC canceled it suddenly in May 2016, Nashville follows country stars Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) and the Highway 65 family as they strive to keep Rayna Jaymes’ dream alive and pursue their music while juggling relationships, family and the ever-changing industry.
Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Kaitlin Doubleday, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Maisy Stella and Lennon Stella also star in the series produced by Lionsgate and Opry Entertainment. Connie Britton played Jaymes for the series’ first four-plus seasons.
The network also said today that two new recurring characters will debut during the remaining eight episodes. Ronny Cox (True Detective) will play Gideon, a crusty, frustrated, would-be musician and recently reformed lifelong alcoholic who resented his son Deacon’s success. Now he’s back to try to heal a long-broken relationship with him. Mia Maestro is Rosa, a dedicated follower of Darius’ (Josh Stamberg) Movement who now is having doubts about her role in it.
Cox is repped by APA and Levine Management; Maestro is with ICM Partners and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
I’ve added some new Nashville episode stills and promotional images of Clare from season 6. I’ve also replaced a bunch of small shoots in the gallery with larger sizes as well as added a couple new ones. Enjoy!
I’ve added screencaps of Clare from this week’s episode of Nashville. Only a small Clare moment but I love all the Scarlett/Deacon moments and performances.
I’ve added HD screencaps of Clare from the most recent episode of Nashville. I love seeing Scarlett so happy! Thanks to my friend Claudia for help getting this episode.
