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.

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
