The “Hart of Dixie” season 5 has been recently cancelled by CW. Some fans speculated that the series was cancelled because of poor ratings, but n0w, rumors have started circulating online that the cancellation was actually because of Rachel Bilson’s pregnancy.
According to Youth Health Magazine, “Hart of Dixie” creator Leila Gerstein thought the show could go on for 17 more seasons. Everyone was really upset, including the creator, when CW officially decided to discontinue the show in May. There were speculations that the show’s protagonist Rachel Bilson’s pregnancy was the reason why the show was cancelled. One of the co-stars on the show Jaime King just confirmed the rumors.
Jaime King shared that when Rachel Bilson got pregnant, her main priority was to take care of her child with Hayden Christensen. The actress reportedly wanted to dedicate her time to her baby and become a full time mother. She was also seeking maternity leave for the same reason.
With Rachel not wanting to continue “Hart of Dixie,” there would not be any point in going ahead with the show since Rachel was playing the main character, Dr. Hart. Despite her wanting to leave the show, Jaime, in a way, defended Rachel. She said that no one could or should blame her for wanting to become a mother because every woman at one point would want to do that.
For all the fans, there still might be some good news as there is a possibility of a spin-off being discussed at the moment. No details, however, are available as of now.
