Williams-Paisley, who has been given a part to play in six of the 13 episodes originally ordered by ABC, will return at least three more times in the upcoming back 9 episodes coming this spring (as first reported by Deadline.com). The role will remain a recurring one throughout the current season but will be upped to a regular part if there is a season 2.
The actress’ character has come into the soapy drama of “Nashville” as the “other woman” in Teddy Conrad’s (Eric Close) life. Her presence is rather problematic for other characters — Rayna (Connie Britton) would have to deal with certain infidelity issues and Teddy might lose his aspiring political career if a Peggy’s secrets were revealed.
Based on this latest casting news, those secrets are not about to disappear any time soon.
