The midseason finale brought a big change to "Nashville," but the second half of the season has a least one constant: drama -- and lots of it.

On Thursday, CMT previewed what's to come when the series returns on June 1, releasing a midseason trailer. The preview is intense, that's for sure. In the wake of Rayna's (Connie Britton) death, the dramatic twists continue. Oh, how they continue.

The trailer is packed with big developments, including snippets of Daphne (Maisy Stella) rebelling, Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) fretting over her career, confusion over the paternity of Scarlett's (Clare Bowman) baby, and multiple characters facing danger. It even features a new, key player, Alyssa (Rachel Bilson), a woman Deacon (Charles Esten) apparently is not too fond of. The big guns are coming out -- literally -- and the show doesn't seem to be missing a beat.

Watch the trailer below.

"Nashville" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
