Former The Young and the Restless hottie Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) who has been a hot ticket on CW’s Hart of Dixie for the last four seasons, has  landed a new role in the upcoming midseason replacement The Astronaut Wives Club on ABC!  On the new series, Bethel will play Scott Carpenter,  the most laid-back of the astronauts and husband to Rene Carpenter (Yvonne Strahovski).

According to TV Guide: “Bethel is only slated to appear in eight of Wives‘ 10 episodes, and because Dixie has already completed filming on Season 4, the two shooting schedules don’t overlap.”

And that has also put into question, just what is the status of Hart of Dixie!  From the looks of it, it appears the show is coming to an end.  First, Wilson tweeted out on October 6th, “Thank you, Wade Kinsella for these four wonderful years. It’s been a mighty pleasure knowing you.”   Wade is the name of the character he has played on the CW drama!

And now Bethel is expanding his relationship with the series’ executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage as well as the network and studio behind Hart of Dixie, the CW and Warner Bros. TV, with two new gigs! One is the aforementioned “Astronaut Wives  Club” which is being produced by Schwartz and Savage, and the other is a turn as a writer!

Deadline.com reports the actor is writing a series for the CW: “Bethel has closed a blind script deal with Warner Bros. TV to pen a drama project for the CW. He has writing experience — Bethel wrote, produced and starred in the CW digital series Stupid Hype and L.A. Rangers. Additionally, he penned the viral Funny or Die video Call Me Doctor starring Hart Of Dixie leading lady Rachel Bilson.”

So, excited to see Wilson in his new series?  Sad to think Hart of Dixie is a goner?  What do you think of his TV success from his time in Genoa City? Comment below!

Oh, my gosh. I had completely forgotten about Ryder, and how he exited from the soap.
Whatever happened to his sister Daisy Carter and her baby Lucy? Is the baby with Daniel? I can’t remember.
Lucy will probably show up as a teen…Wow! Phyllis with a grown granddaughter is hard to grasp….I am just ruminating and fantasizing…LOL.

His atrocious “southern accent” in “Hart of Dixie” is reason enough to cancel that turkey.

Oh yes! Now I remember who he played. I was drawing a blank there for a moment (which happens more times than I care to admit).
Yes, he and his creepy sister Daisy were Children of the Corn.
Congratulations to this young and talented actor.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
