Has CW Canceled ‘Hart of Dixie’?

Has the CW packed up and shipped out of Bluebell?

Although the network has made no official decision yet, a recent Tweet from “Hart of Dixie” series creator Leila Gerstein suggests the comedy-drama starring Rachel Bilson has been axed after four seasons.

“The final three episodes of #HartofDixie begin tonight,” she wrote on March 6. “Buckle up, I think you will enjoy the ride. Xo”

She added, “No one out there loves #HOD more than me. I would have gone 17 years! But I assure you, we prepared for this. And the finale will be tremendously satisfying to all.”

The CW said no decision had been made yet, and is standing by president Mark Pedowitz’s remarks from the winter Television Critics Assn. tour in January.

“I think Leila did a great job in the 10 episodes this year of making something fun for the fans, so if it ends, there’s a great finale,” he said then. “If it doesn’t end, there’s a great season finale, but we’re not committed one way or the other yet.”

While CW has found a critical hit in female-skewing dramedy “Jane the Virgin,” “Hart’s” cancellation would be on point with Pedowitz’s efforts to rebrand the network and target a broader audience.

“As much as we’re proud of ‘Gossip Girl,’ we set out to change the perception that we’re no longer a teenage-girl audience,” he said at last summer’s Television Critics Assn. press tour.
