Nashville is officially back at work at its new home on CMT. The show tweeted out the first pics as production kicked off today. The images feature the front page of the script for an episode titled “The Wayfaring Stranger” as well a pic of a few of cast members at the table read.
Notably missing in the pics are stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. We previously reported that Britton (Rayna James) has committed to only a limited number of episodes of Nashville‘s 22-episode Season 5 order. Britton’s long-term future on the show also appears to be up in the air.
Nashville Season 5 will premiere with a two-hour episode on January 5, 2017 on CMT.
