Hart of Dixie's Wilson Bethel Joins Astronaut Wives Club as Series Regular

Wilson Bethel Astronaut Wives Club

Things are looking up for Wilson Bethel. Like, way up. Outer-space up.

RELATED Exclusive: Jericho Alum Kenneth Mitchell Joins ABC’s Astronaut Wives Club as Series Regular

The Hart of Dixie star has joined ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club as a series regular, our sister site Deadline reports, playing Scott Carpenter, the laid-back husband of Yvonne Strahovski’s Rene.

So what does this mean for Bethel’s future in Bluebell? Per Deadline, Bethel is only slated to appear in eight of Wives‘ 10 episodes, and given Dixie‘s shortened fourth season — The CW only ordered 10 episodes this time around — scheduling wasn’t an issue.

    I hope this doesn’t mean the end of HOD! Wasn’t the episode order for s4, like 10 episodes??

  2. Babybop says:

    Well I guess I have to watch this show now… I will seriously watch anything this boy is in.

  3. analog says:

    Not surprised since HOD (and BotB) will probably end this season.

  4. bar says:

    Christ he’s hot

  5. Lore says:

    He cant leave!! he is gonna be a father in Hart of DIxie, Zoe is gonna be pregnant in the show, he needs to be the father

  6. rebecca says:

    Good for him, but he’s only going to be in 8 episodes of the final 10 on HOD?! How rude!!

  7. Walter says:

    Wilson Bethel and Yvonne Strahosvki on the same show? I’m definately gonna watch it!

  8. Katherine215 says:

    Well, now I’m going to have to watch this show. But I will be SO SAD if this is the last season of HOD. I just love that show so much. :(

  9. Tracie says:

    Good for him. This will definitely be a series that I’ll be checking out with this casting news.

  10. Priyam says:

    These shows all are from the same people (the OC, Gossip Girl, Chuck, Hart of dixie, Carrie diaries, Austronaut’s wives club) so I guess they shouldn’t have an issue managing his schedule.

  11. Eliza says:

    I have a serious crush on him from HOD. Will make sure to check this show out now.

  12. Dominique says:

    so i guess that’s more or less confirmation this will be HOD’s final season, if the shortened season wasn’t already enough.
    Does anyone know when HoD returns?

  13. Heathers says:

    Are they gong to have him standing anywhere near Yvonne Strahofski? She is going to tower over him.

  14. J says:

    He was saying goodbye to Wade last week on Twitter. Something about great 4 years, time to say goodbye.

  15. Tran says:

    Don’t know if this casting news could be the end for Hart of Dixie.

  16. Karen says:

    I really enjoy Hart Of Dixie and don’t want it to end with a short Season 4. I’m sure they can work around the pregnancy and be good to go with Season 5….. Love watching this wholesome show…..

  17. Lara says:

    I’m definitely following him in this role and the ones to come. Sad for HoD if it finishes after this season though, it’s different from what we are getting on our tvs.

  18. Becky says:

    Yes! I’ll watch him in anything!

  19. Jill says:

    With news of Wilson Bethel’s casting, Astronaut Wives Club is appointment viewing for me. I always knew he had The Right Stuff.

  20. Beansie says:

    Guess this really is going to be HODs last season. This coupled with the news of another, fish out of water, New Yorker coming at the end of this new season–I’m thinking that the last episode shows how far Zoe has come and that there’s a new fish out of water in town and she’s finally completely accepted by Bluebell.

  21. Scott Porter and Wilson Bethel were kinda saying on twitter that it was a final goodbye to the cast and their characters.

  22. nata says:

    I’ll follow this guy anywhere 😊

  23. Those are some really really pretty people together. I’m not sure my TV can take it.

  24. Kristina says:

    Looks like more evidence this could be HoD’s last season. Hope they wrap it up well.

  25. Shirley Ann says:

    Really liked his performance in Hart of Dixie. It will be interesting to follow his acting in the next few years. Will he always have charming ladies man roles? Maybe our new Cary Grant?

  26. Shirley Ann says:

    Astronaut Wives Club is scheduled for tonight — I will be watching.
