While we all wait for the return of Nashville to CMT this January, we are also waiting to find out the future for Connie Britton on the show.
As we reported last month, the Nashville star’s future was in question because she’s only signed on for 10 episodes of the new season, which will have a total of 22 episodes for season 5.
While walking the red carpet at the Emmy’s on Sunday night, Britton was asked about the rumors of her departure.
“I don’t know where that stuff came from. It’s kind of crazy the stuff that comes out,” she said. “What I can tell you is, we’re on CMT now. We have amazing writers that I’m so excited about, and it’s going to be the best writing we’ve ever seen on Nashville and probably the best season we’ve ever had.”
So ‘crazy’ means that she IS returning for the entire season, right?!
