“Hart of Dixie” fans need to reschedule their next appointment with Dr. Zoe Hart: The CW has bumped up the comedy’s Season 4 premiere date by a month.

Rachel Bilson, her short shorts and the Southern denizens of quirky BlueBell, Ala., will return to TV at 8 p.m. Dec. 15, a Monday, rather than the previously announced Jan. 9.

The premiere episode, “Kablang,” is expected to explain the finale’s unanswered questions: What new romantic scheme is Zoe up to now that Wade (Wilson Bethel) decided not to move to Atlanta? And did Lemon (Jaime King) return from the singles cruise with a new man after leaving George (Scott Porter) and Lavon (Cress Williams) hanging at the port?

King also hailed the upcoming episodes as the “best season yet” on Twitter.


The small-town comedy will premiere ahead of the fall finale of the critically acclaimed but low-rated rookie “Jane the Virgin.”

“Hart of Dixie” will then go on a brief hiatus and return to its regular 8 p.m. Friday slot on Jan. 9.

It’s unclear if the fourth season will be the comedy’s last.
