Derek Hough Is Returning to ‘Nashville’ For Season 4!


Derek Hough is already making good use of all his free time not being on Dancing With the Stars Season 22 — he's headed back to Nashville!

That's right, we'll be seeing his movie star character Noah West on the musical drama once again.

E! Reports the 30-year-old will be reprising his role for multiple episodes this spring, though there are no further details about how he'll play into the plot.

In the world of the show, Noah was Juliette's co-star in a Patsy Cline biopic, which was a major hit and is under awards consideration, so we assume we'll be seeing him promoting the film in some capacity.

What we're really interested to know is if he and Juliette could end up having a romantic spark. They did seem to have chemistry last time we saw them together, and now that Avery is pushing his wife away so strongly, she might just fall into Noah's arms.

Or maybe we're totally off base. Whatever happens, we're just excited that Derek will be on our small screens again, even if it's not in the ballroom!

Nashville Season 4 returns on Wednesday, March 16 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
