Just when Nashies thought the drama of Nashville on CMT was hitting its peak, they’re in for a sensational season lying ahead.

Abruptly finishing on a cliffhanger with the death of Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) causing confusion for all characters involved, the cast must pick up the pieces following the surprising tragedy but do so in a way that heightens the level of the spectacle in Music City.

As depicted in the latest full-length trailer for the mid-season series premiere, worlds collide and crash as each of the characters figures out how to move on past the shocking loss. Scarlett O’Connor (Clare Bowen) ponders the paternity test between the two men in her life as Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) questions his new flame and Highway 65 Records investor Zach Welles.

Both Maddie and Daphne Conrad (Lennon and Maisy Stella) confront their grief in separate ways: Maddie gears her focus toward her career and her relationship as Daphne gets into a crowd that leads her down a path weary and unknown.

Meanwhile, Juliette Barnes’ (Hayden Panettiere) tumultuous relationship to Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson) seems to be hitting the rocky road hard as she strives toward her comeback following her plane crash nightmare.

Even with the loss of one big character to the show, new faces will stir up even more crazy antics for the regulars including Alyssa Greene (Rachel Bilson) who tries to put her business foot down against Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) when it comes to the future of Highway 65 Records.

See how the drama unfolds during new episodes of Nashville on CMT that will start to air on Thursday, June 1, at 9 p.m. ET.
