The sudden cancellation of Hart of Dixie was a shock to the fans who were hoping that the show would be renewed. There were initial reports that the series has been cancelled because of low TRP, but that wasn’t the case.
Hart of Dixie was cancelled because lead actress Rachel Bilson, who plays the role of Zoe Hart decided to quit the show as she was welcoming her baby girl. Rachel Bilson and her long time beau Hayden Christensen had their first baby, Briar Rose, end of last year.
Rachel Bilson wanted to put her career on hold to look after her baby girl and be a hands-on mother. When she decided to quit the show, the network bosses realised that there was no scope to keep the show alive when the main character herself wouldn’t be there.
When the official news about the show being cancelled, surfaced, viewers believed that it was because of the low TRP that the show was supposedly having. This news has been denied by Jamie King. She said that Hart of Dixie was cancelled since Rachel Bilson went on a maternity leave and not because it was not popular.
King said that it is sad that the show had to come to an end, but the decision to go on a maternity leave is Rachel’s alone and no one had the right to say anything else. King also gave fans a hope saying that she hopes there is a spin-off of the popular series, or that the show at least continues with the other characters.
The network bosses were very surprised when they saw the fan reactions upon hearing that Hart of Dixie has been cancelled. The series wasn’t as popular as they would have expected it to be. The network is thinking of creating a spin-off of the popular series, keeping the other characters and the tone of the series similar to the original.
After the news of Hart of Dixie being cancelled were announced, the fans expected Rachel Bilson to speak up and issue a statement on the issue, but she has been completely quiet. Being a full time mother isn’t an easy job and it is because of this very reason that Rachel Bilson has not come out with any statement after the series was cancelled.
It is not true that Rachel Bilson hasn’t said anything related to Hart of Dixie being cancelled. She did appear for an interview with E! News where she spoke about the inconvenience that the cast and crew of Hart of Dixie had to face when the cancellation was confirmed. Bilson also made it very clear that the show wasn’t cancelled because of low TRP.
Rachel Bilson who was a part of other popular series like OC and How I Met Your Mother, is busy with her daughter. Ever since she gave birth to Briar Rose, Rachel and her beau Hayden Christensen have been careful to not let the paparazzi get to the little baby.
They have not shared any photos of the baby, Rachel Bilson did join Instagram recently and has been posting regularly. Yes, fans did expect photos of the baby girl, but Rachel Bilson has clearly avoided uploading any photos of her daughter. She uses the photo sharing app to share photos of the clothes and accessories of Briar Rose.
The Hart of Dixie actress has shared photos of the matching clothes from Vans with the photo of Darth Vader on it. The actress also shared photos of herself cuddling Briar Roses toys. Rachel Bilson has been a doting mother and she told Health Magazine that she had always wanted babies. She said that she could always imagine having little babies waddling around her house.
