The country-music drama will return for Season 6 in January 2018, Cmt announced Thursday after the Season 5 finale.

But given the events of the Season 5 finale, will there even be a Highway 65 record company when Juliette, Deacon & Co. are once more on our screens? “There is a chance that Highway 65 will survive,” showrunner Marshall Herskovitz told TVLine in a finale post mortem Thursday, “but they’re still facing the same kind of real difficulties record labels face these days.”

Nashville Finale: Ep Talks Avery/Juliette Reunion (and Rings!), H65's Chances

10 August 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The record label Rayna Jaymes worked so hard to build may be in shambles, and if it does survive, it’ll do so without one of its marquee players. Still, Nashville showrunner Marshall Herskovitz says, we should consider the Season 5 finale a win… for Juliette, if no one else.

Even though Ms. Barnes spends the end of the hour wondering if she’s irrevocably messed-up, “She also does this remarkable thing to redeem herself,” the Ep tells TVLine. He’s referring to Juliette’s pulling herself out of the running for an American Music Award and outing herself — via morally »

Nashville Finale: Charles Esten, Ep Weigh In On That Surprising Kiss

10 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Deacon might’ve been taken mightily aback by the moment in Nashville‘s Season 5 finale when Alyssa kisses him on the lips outside The Bluebird, but co-showrunner Marshall Herskovitz saw it coming from the moment the bespectacled strategy guru first walked into Highway 65.

“It was our plan to do that scene all along. From the moment we introduced Alyssa, one of the things we said was that she was going to kiss Deacon,” the executive producer tells TVLine. “But what we had in mind for that kiss was very different from what you saw.”

Nashville Ep, Star Dish Maddie/Juliette Feud in Season 5 Finale — Plus: Watch Deacon Angrily Confront Zach

10 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Keep this in mind while watching the exclusive Nashville finale sneak peek above: Showrunner Marshall Herskovitz says the confrontation between Deacon and Zach over the fate of Highway 65 is just as painful for the tech wunderkind as it is for Rayna’s widower. (Though we’re pretty sure we know with which one you’re likely to side.)

“Even though [Zach] is in the position of being the bad guy right now, it’s not a position he at all relishes,” Herskovitz tells TVLine in advance of the season ender, which airs tonight at 9/8c on Cmt. But that’s little comfort to Deacon, »

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay

11 July 2017 3:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance broke out Dee Rees’ post-World War II epic “Mudbound,” a script of sweeping ambition and detail adapted by Rees and Virgil Williams from the Hilary Jordan novel. Netflix picked up the movie for the Sundance 2017 record of $12.5 million, and plans a full-on Oscar campaign, despite a limited theatrical day-and-date release.

Also rising to instant Oscar contention was Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name,” an elegiac summer love story set in Italy, between a vacationing teenager (Timothee Chalumet) and his father’s researcher (Armie Hammer). Sony Pictures Classics will hit the fall festivals with the critics’ darling.

Cannes introduced Todd Haynes’ cinematic tour-de-force “Wonderstruck,” adapted by Brian Selznick from his own graphic novel, which intercuts two periods, the 20s and the 70s, in silent black-and-white and color with sound. The film is the Centerpiece gala at the New York Film Festival.

Also debuting at Cannes was director-prize-winner Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled, »

AFI Alums Pitch in for Classmate’s Movie

29 June 2017 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After three years, indie writer-director Danish Renzu and producer Tara Tucker are completing “The Illegal,” a timely film about immigrants in the U.S. The saga is a testament to the filmmakers’ perseverance — and to the power of networking while in film school.

Renzu got a degree in electrical engineering from UCLA. And when he quit his full-time job at At&T after five years to concentrate on filmmaking, a mutual friend put him in touch with Tucker, who runs Tucker/Hess Prods. with her husband, Brandon Hess.

Tucker, AFI class of 2012, roped in production designer Young Ok Lee, editor Varun Vishwanath, line producer Richard King and gaffer Martin Kobylarz, all from her graduating class. Even the Pa is from AFI, she says. And the indie film lensed on the AFI campus, as well as USC; in July, the filmmakers will go to New Delhi, India, to complete the film.

Nashville Ep Promises Rest of Season 5 Isn't a 'Depressing Memorial' to Rayna

29 May 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though grief is a circuitous journey full of setbacks and bad days, Nashville co-showrunner Marshall Herskovitz would like you to know that Rayna Jaymes’ friends and loved ones are coming out of the worst of it.

And so, though the redheaded country music star will continue to be a presence when the Cmt drama returns on Thursday, June 1 (9/8c), don’t expect the back half of the season to be a weeping, wailing rehash of her untimely death.

The American Film Institute’s AFI Docs festival will pay tribute to “Citizenfour” director Laura Poitras as the festival’s Charles Guggenheim Symposium honoree.

The award will be presented at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on June 16 and will include an in-depth conversation with Poitras along with clips from her works. Poitras’ latest film “Risk,” a six-year project following WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, was released by Neon on May 5 and will air on Showtime this summer.

Poitras’ documentary credits include “The Oath” (2010), “My Country, My Country” (2006) and “Flag Wars” (2003). “Citizenfour” grew out of a meeting with Edward Snowden in 2013 after he e-mailed her inside information about illegal wiretapping practices of the U.S. National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies. She won the 2015 Academy Award for  Best Feature Documentary for the film.

“Poitras has the extraordinary instinct and ability to put her camera in the heart of history as it unfolds, »

'Nashville' Season 5B Preview: New Characters, New Music and a New Normal

18 May 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

After the death of Rayna Jaymes, Nashville will pick up ten weeks later when it returns on June 1, with new characters to boot. During the interview, first posted on TVLine, Ep Marshall Herskovitz revealed information and a sneak peek about these new characters, and it's sure that they're going to be stirring up some trouble with the remaining members of Nashville -- Deacon, especially. He seems to be the one that will be working closely with both of them, and one may even be Deacon's next shot at a happy ending. That's speculation based off the preview where they seem to be "close," but maybe the two just have a past?

18 April 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate and CBS Films has debuted the first trailer and poster for the long-awaited adaptation American Assassin, based on author Vince Flynn's iconic novel series following the character Mitch Rapp, played by Dylan O'Brien. With 15 novels and counting in this series, CBS Films could very well have a franchise on their hands, if American Assassin becomes a big hit at the box office. But as of now, no sequel plans have been confirmed. This footage gives us some early insight into Mitch Rapp's past, teasing the path that lead him to the CIA.

American Assassin follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three »

‘Nashville’ Renewed by Cmt for Season 6; Midseason Premiere Date Set

10 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Nashville” has been renewed by Cmt for a sixth season. The cable channel also set June 1 as the return date for the back half of the drama’s current fifth season.

Season six will consist of 16 new episodes and is set to premiere in early 2018.

Cmt became the new home of “Nashvile” last year when ABC canceled the country-music drama after the end of its fourth season. The first 11 episodes of season five averaged a 0.2 live-plus-same day Nielsen rating in the 18-49 demo and 900,000 total viewers — numbers that paled in comparison to what the series drew on broadcast, but were solid for a cable channel with limited scripted programming presence such as Cmt. In live-plus seven numbers, the first half of season five averaged 2.1 million viewers, making it the most watched show in Cmt history.

The first half of season five featured the death of lead character Rayna James, played by Connie Britton. Producers »
