After almost five years, can ‘Hart of Dixie’ be revived for its fans? Let’s find out more about the possibility.
‘Hart of Dixie‘ was initially hailed as Rachel Bilson’s comeback after her popular show ‘The O.C.‘. It revolves around Bilson as Dr Zoe Hart, who finds out that her father is not biologically related to her. Instead, her real, not-alive, father was a doctor in Bluebell, Alabama. She escapes New York to take over his practice but faces her dad’s business partner Brick Breeland. She also quickly becomes enemies with his daughter, Lemon, and falls for her fiancé George. The show’s unforgettable charm is missed even today. So, is there some potential to a ‘Hart of Dixie’ revival?

Is a ‘Hart of Dixie’ revival possible?
Since its end in 2015, ‘Hart of Dixie’ fans have been requesting for its revival. If you remember, by the end of season 4, Zoe and Wade got married in a last-minute wedding. They also became parents of a beautiful baby boy. One of the unresolved mysteries that the possible revival of ‘Hart of Dixie’ may shed more light on is the baby’s name. Another thing that was left unknown was Zoe and Wade’s living situation after their marriage. There were talks of them moving to Lavon’s property in the final episode, but unfortunately, the viewers did not see that being realised. Hence, a revival could showcase that and the life of Zoe and Wade as parents too.
Actor Wilson Bethel, who played the role of Wade Kinsella, spoke to “TV Line” about where he thinks his character and Zoe are now.
“I would like to believe they are happily raising a four-year-old, which is kind of amazing that that much time has passed. Or even five-year-old, maybe?”
He also talked about how ‘Hart of Dixie’ was a pivotal part of his life and career. It has been four or five years since it ended, and, fortunately, he still feels so connected to the people he did that show with and the material itself. Bethel also talked about how people are still finding the show for the first time and rewatching it. It is an incredibly special thing, and he, till this day, has an incredible affection for the show and that character.
One of the biggest questions of ‘Hart of Dixie’ was who Zoe will choose, George or Wade. While we know that Zoe got back together with Wade, we have no clue about what happened to George on ‘Hart of Dixie’. Hence, fans of the show will surely like to see his side of the story too. Another character in Zoe’s complicated love story was Wade’s brother Jesse (Justin Hartley). Even though Zoe and Jesse have an instant connection, they do not pursue it ahead due to the former’s feelings for Wade. Wade and Jesse also never get to resolve their conflict.
Rachel Bilson talks about a ‘Hart of Dixie’ spin-off
In an interview with “PopCulture.com”, Rachel Bilson talked about if she would be open to doing a ‘Hart of Dixie’ spin-off.
“Oh, I would totally do it. We all love each other. We have such a good group. We have a group chat that we are always checking in and stuff. I would love to do it.”
She further mentioned that the show was a great experience and how much she loved playing Zoe.
Bilson also spoke about discussing the ‘Hart of Dixie’ spin-off with fellow cast members Jaime King, Cress Williams, and Scott Porter.
“I mean, we are always saying, ‘Let’s bring it back’, ‘What can we do?’ Everyone’s into it. So, the powers that be, if you are listening, we will do it.”
A small ‘Hart of Dixie’ reunion
Just a while ago, a few of the cast members of ‘Hart of Dixie’, Scott Porter, Wilson Bethel, and Rachel Bilson, had a mini-reunion that was shared on Instagram. In an interview with “Instyle”, Bilson talked about meeting her co-stars of ‘Hart of Dixie’.
“Yes! I saw Scott Porter in a play that he is in and Wilson [Bethel] was there, too. It was a nice little reunion.”
In 2020, ‘Hart of Dixie’ members had a Zoom reunion along with showrunner and creator, Leila Gerstein. As expected, fans rejoiced at the reunion and hope to see more of it in the future.
