Rachel Bilson has joined the cast of Nashville's fifth season, which will maybe go some way toward healing the Connie Britton-shaped hole in all of our hearts. Variety reports that Rachel has been cast in the recurring role of Alyssa, while Empire actress Kaitlin Doubleday will also play a new recurring role.
Kaitlin acknowledged her casting in an Instagram post featuring a picture of the record label Highway 65, which doesn't give us a whole lot to go on as far as her character goes - maybe she's an artist at that label, maybe a producer or an exec?
She'll make her debut in the back half of season five, which will premiere on CMT later this year. The mid-season finale aired last night, and you can watch a new trailer for the latter half of the season below:
