'Hart of Dixie' Canceled? Scott Porter and Wilson Bethel Give The Update | Hart of Dixie

While The CW has yet to make an official announcement about the Rachel Bilson led show, Hart of Dixie, the signs are all point to it being canceled. From the show's short, 10-episode order to the cast's farewell-seeming Instagram posts things aren't looking good.

Before you go making a trending topic to save the show, Scott Porter, 35, who plays handsome town lawyer George Tucker, insists there still might be some hope. "The reason we only shot 10 episodes is really because Rachel Bilson is going to have her first little baby, and there's no Hart of Dixie without the Hart," explains the actor. "We had an abbreviated season and this is not unusual for shows to do — if you look at Scandal just a couple of years ago — fewer episodes depending upon the schedule of when the baby is born. She really didn't want to have to come back to work right away — she wants to be very hands-on and be able to be there those first couple of months after the baby's born, so we just kind of shot what we could as quickly as we could and 10 episodes is what worked out for us." Well that makes sense. However, if you ask Wilson Bethel then don't expect to hear the same optimistic answer. Matter of fact, Bethel has already booked a new gig.

"There seemed to be indications that maybe potentially this could be the last season... Storywise, it started to kind of feel in that way," he tells Yahoo TV. "In terms of some of the hullaballoo around certain tweets that were sent, it was basically preparing for that possibility."

Oh you mean tweets like this one?

"If, in fact, this is the final season of Hart of Dixie, the show is left in a really good place... It's really satisfying and I think that's part of the reason the cast were feeling like this could be the end," Bethel explained. "It was just like, oh my god, if this is over, then I'm saying goodbye to this friend of mine, this guy who I really adore."

Porter insists that the show is not going anywhere, but he added to the cancellation rumor buzz when he posted a few pics that were very sentimental. One of them included a picture of himself, Bethel, and Cress Williams

"I would love to come back and be a part of Bluebell again — and there's a chance — but we really need the support of the fans to be able to come back," urges Porter. "If people don't watch, then shows don't come back, so we just need a little help."

So there have it Dixie fans. If you want to save the show there's only one thing you can do...WATCH!
