Tonight is the season finale of the second season of The CW's Hart of Dixie. The series, which features Rachel Bilson as Zoe Hart, was recently surprisingly renewed for a third season.
Big decisions are in store for Zoe and friends on tonight's episode, "On The Road Again," as Zoe returns to New York City to clear her head. Do not expect to have all your questions answered tonight, however, says series showrunner/executive producer Leila Gerstein.
"It's the kind of cliffhanger where we're going to come back and see everyone a few months later in season three," she said.
Gerstein really felt like the series caught fire this season.
"I think we really found our groove in season two. The show is a romantic comedy. Season two really highlighted that. We let Zoe get a little crazy which Rachel [Bilson] handled beautifully. I think we found a way to make George Tucker (Scott Porter) funny, which has been super successful, and I’m most proud of the fact that we redeemed Lemon Vreeland (Jaime King). I think the audience is really relating to her this season. She’s really struggling to find herself now that she’s left at the altar and we really succeeded in making people fall in love with her," she said.
Next season's story is still being worked on, but Gerstein is excited about the raoad ahead.
"I'm only really just starting to think about season three right now. There are things that I feel like aren't done and we'll still come around to. It's a long series, whatever team you're on you'll probably have a chance to see something that will make you happy by the end of the series," she added.
