Dust off your cowboy hats. Nashville returns for its second season Wednesday (10/9c, ABC), and there's sure to be no shortage of drama.
Nashville fans will get a peek at the early years of Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) in its September 25 season premiere, when the ABC drama flashes back more than a decade.
"We're going back to ...
Three of Nashville's recurring cast members will be singing a happier tune this upcoming season.

Connie Britton, Charles Esten
Just as Nashville fans were happily embracing Rayna and Deacon's romantic reunion, a major paternity bombshell ripped the pair apart. When the show returns, is there any chance for a reconciliation?
"You will see happy times between the two. They might not necessarily be the happy times that we want, but we'll certainly be working towards more happy times," showrunner Dee Johnson tells TVGuide.com. "They have to work through their relationship and what it means to both of them and hopefully they'll come to some understanding that leads them back to each other."

New Girl is killing me with this relationship drama! Please tell me that Nick and Jess will wise up and get together, and that Cece will dump her fiancé for Schmidt. — Mina
NATALIE: Good news: Nick and Jess will go on a first date. Bad news: Their date doesn't go as planned. "Neither one of us wants to admit to being on a date," Zooey Deschanel tells us. "And then Russell, Dermot [Mulroney]'s character, is in the same restaurant." Awkward ex alert! Meanwhile, it seems that Schmidt is not going to try and win back Cece after all. "He will try and get a plus-one for her wedding and tries to find an ex-girlfriend of his [played by Merritt Wever]," Max Greenfield says. "And when he finds her, he realizes, 'Oh, wait a minute. This was special when we were together.'"
So Ryan's new boss on The Following is clearly one of Joe's people, right? — Jason
Lust. Love. Heartbreak. Three things that make for a great country song. And great television. At Saturday's PaleyFest panel for freshman music drama Nashville, moderated by TV Guide Magazine President and Editor-in-Chief Debra Birnbaum, the cast and producers spilled on what's coming up behind the scenes — talk of a tour is in "vague stages" according to star Charles Esten — and on screen...
Beverly Hills is going to look a lot like Nashville this Saturday afternoon as the cast of ABC's critically acclaimed serialized drama assembles for a not-to-be-missed PaleyFest panel.

Army Wives courtesy Lifetime
Army Wives' top lieutenant is stepping down. Show-runner Dee Johnson was relieved of her duties over the weekend, sources confirm to me exclusively. Johnson's ouster the result of creative differences with producer ABC Studios marks the third show-runner change the Lifetime drama has weathered in a little over a year. Samantha Corbin-Miller was the first to go AWOL in Dec. 06. She was replaced a few months later by Jeff Melvoin (Alias), who stuck around until last August, at which point Johnson took over. This latest exec shuffle couldn't have come at a worse time: Army Wives which ranks as Lifetime's No. 1-rated drama series of all time is only two weeks into production on its highly anticipated 18-episode second season.
Natasha Henstridge, Commander in Chief
Sure, all the headlines have been about the backstage power-shifts going on at ABC's Commander in Chief (Thursdays at 10 pm/ET), but there's a whopper of an on-screen power grab on the horizon. (Three words: Templeton in charge!) On the way to work yesterday, Natasha Henstridge, who plays the silver fox's chief of staff, Jayne Murray, spoke with TVGuide.com about Chief's never-boring term.
