Is Rayna James sticking around? Recently, Connie Britton discussed leaving Nashville during its upcoming fifth season on CMT, TVLine reports.
Earlier, it was reported that Britton would only be appearing in half or so of season five’s 22 episodes. Regular stars Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella, and Chris Carmack are all returning.
At the Emmys on Sunday, Britton told TVLine she doesn’t know where that rumor came from:
I don’t know where that stuff came from. It’s kind of crazy the things that come out.”
However, Britton didn’t deny the rumor either. Instead, she praised the new season, calling it “the best season we’ve ever had.” Season five of Nashville premieres on January 5th.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Nashville? Do you think Britton will stay on the show?
