Hopes for a fifth season of Hart of Dixie just officially went south: The CW has cancelled Rachel Bilson’s medical dramedy, EW has learned.
The news shouldn’t come as a shock to disappointed fans, as the show had been struggling in the ratings, averaging a .6 in the 18-to-49 demo and 1.6 million viewers. Back in the winter, when the CW renewed eight series, Hart of Dixie was not one of them. In addition, on the night of the season 4 finale in late March, creator Leila Gerstein (who had previously told fans to “buckle up” for the final three episodes) fans and the show’s stars tweeted sentimentally about the end of the series, treating that episode as the likely farewell.
The CW ordered a second season of iZombie yesterday, two weeks before the season 1 finale airs.
