The new season of Nashville is bringing all the delicious drama.
The show's Season 5 extended trailer dropped on Friday, teasing what's shaping up to be the juiciest season yet. Right off the bat, the two-minute preview heartbreakingly shows that Juliette is the sole survivor of her terrifying plane crash, after a preview earlier this month showed a frightened Juliette in the plane as it's going down.
But the road to recovery is a long one. A doctor tells Juliette that it might take months before she "could feel anything," to which she sullenly replies, "or never."
Meanwhile, Rayna (Connie Britton) is dealing with a creepy stalker, and also arguing with Deacon (Charles Esten) about her desire to write a concept album. Other faves struggling in relationships include Will (Chris Carmack), who appears to be caught in a romantic triangle, as well as Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio), who are struggling with keeping both their personal and professional relationship intact.
Nashville's two-hour premiere airs Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on CMT, after which it will live on Hulu.
ET spoke to new co-showrunner Marshall Herskovitz on Thursday after Juliette's fate was revealed, who talked about the character's spiritual quest this seasons.
"We've watched this woman go through hell, and we’ve watched her descend into hell," Hershkovitz said. "Now she’s gone through a literal hell with this plane crash, and I think that would have a profound effect on anybody."
"For us as dramatists, the opportunity … was to watch what happens to a human being who has to live through that," he added. "That's gold, dramatically speaking. Without speaking directly to what the story is going to be, Juliette is definitely on a journey and we’re going to see real changes in her life."
