Nashville Spoilers Season 5

Nashville Season 5: Luke Who's Back!

His days as a series regular may be over, but Will Chase‘s presence will be felt — and seen, apparently — when Nashville premieres on CMT in 2017.

Chris Carmack on Sunday tweeted a behind-the-scenes look at Season 5, revealing that we haven’t heard the last of Rayna’s ex-fiancé Luke Wheeler:

And Chase, now a series regular on ABC’s midseason drama Time After Time, clearly shares in Carmack’s excitement:

The guys’ working relationship hasn’t always been a smooth one — remember when Luke wanted to drop Will from his label? — but it seems the two have worked out their differences, so much so that Will is now opening up for Luke in concert.

Nashville‘s fifth season kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9/8c on CMT.

    Not my favourite character.

  2. Jake L. says:

    Of course they worked out their differences; Luke resigned Will and was crusading with him against the right-wing commentator at the end of last season. I think it’s good that he is returning because we need to have an in-universe explanation for his absence, as Will is still on his label, and perhaps this will more adequately write him out than if he just disappeared.

    Layla will be heard from too, right? Not that I care.

  4. seller says:

    Glad to have Will Chase and Luke Wheeler back even if it’s as a recurring character. Wouldn’t be the same without him! #wheelsup

  5. H says:

    Can you return if you never left? At leasy he’s not a regular.

  6. Patty says:

    Please bring Luke Back hated him at fist but then he grow on my. #Nashies

  7. Claire says:

    I’d hate seeing Layla again, but I enjoyed Luke after a while. Once they got him away from Rayna and started his own path to redemption, he seemed like a good addition to the show.

  8. Lorna says:

    So happy. Should Connie leave and his new show not work out, promote him back to regular.

  9. JarrodH says:

    Are they going to give Aubrey an appearance as well to wrap up her storyline? Say what you will about how they wrote Layla’s character I want to hear a final song from her. Still the best female voice Nashville has had. Will be missed!
