Rachel Bilson and Kaitlin Doubleday join the cast of Nashville!

Nashville is adding a few new faces in the wake of star Connie Britton’s recent exit.

Rachel Bilson and Kaitlin Doubleday have signed on for roles in the country music drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

No character descriptions were provided for the characters, but both actresses dropped hints about their characters when announcing their roles on social media Thursday following the CMT series’ midseason finale. (Bilson’s Instagram photo showed a photo of Highway 65, the label formed by Britton’s character, while Doubleday’swas an image of the iconic Bluebird Cafe.) It’s also unknown how big their roles will be when the drama returns later this year.

“We welcome Rachel and Kaitlin into our incredibly talented ensemble,” said series co-showrunner Marshall Herskovitz. “We fondly anticipate the second half of the season filled with surprising twists and turns that make Nashville so beloved by the fans.”
