When Hart of Dixie picks up, lovebirds Lavon and Annabeth (the newly promoted Kaitlyn Black) are “still happily together,” showrunner Leila Gerstein shared recently with TVLine, “but having some tension because his demanding cousin has moved in.”
Said troublemaker, we’ve learned exclusively, will be played by newcomer Antoinette Robertson (Zero Hour, A Gifted Man).
Her character, Lynly, is described as “beautiful yet spoiled and clueless.”
Dexter alum Josh Cooke, meanwhile, will recur in Dixie‘s third season, per The Hollywood Reporter. He joins the CW charmer as a New Yorker who feels out of place upon relocating to Bluebell.
