Rachel Bilson: 'Hart of Dixie' Gets A Full Season!

Rachel Bilson and boyfriend Hayden Christensen leave a Thai restaurant separately on Wednesday (October 12) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old actress’s CW show, Hart of Dixie, has been picked up for a full season, along with the network’s other freshmen series, Ringer and The Secret Circle.

“We believe in the creative strength of these dramas, and by giving them back nine orders we can give our audience the chance to enjoy complete seasons of all three of them,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said.

“With compelling storylines, engaging characters and tremendous buzz, we firmly believe that Hart of Dixie, Ringer, and The Secret Circle can become signature series for The CW, the kind of top-notch shows that are synonymous with our brand,” he added.

    YESSSS. I love the show. Way better than snooty OC. Love anything southern. xoxox.

  • NohoCycleChic

    Why is he wearing underwear out in public? (!!!)

  • Karina

    YAY! I’m so HAPPY! I love this new show and Rachel and Hayden, so it’s a ‘win-win’ for me! NOW I can’t wait to see Hayden in Battlecreek and The Diplomat!

  • Anonymous

    They are such a perfect couple. They should have gotten married years ago, they are so right for each other.

    The show sucks the worst @$$ in HW IMHO. Bilson is extremely well connected, being the bff of Josh Schwartz’s wife and related to many people in the HW machine. If she wasn’t so well-connected, she would be a waitress at Starbucks and would never have met Hayden. That would have been too bad, because they are so much a part of each other and so exactly like one another, it’s impossible to imagine that they’re separate people.

  • Karina

    @NohoCycleChic: Uhhh, like they aren’t underwear they are Nike shorts dude!

  • Lizzie

    @recommend: I do love her new show, but nothing will compare to how amazing The OC was!! And congrats to Rachel!

  • Karina

    @Anonymous: Well, at least ONE thing I agree with you on….Hayden and Rachel ARE so much like one another and fit together very well and ARE the perfect couple. I don’t know why they’re not married either but I’m positive it’s the “Hollywood thing”. By that I mean, HW is a very harsh place, especially when you put yourself and talent out there for everyone to say negative things about you which they do often with a lot of insensitivity and cruelty. They are severe and abrasive, is it any wonder they don’t talk to the paps, geez! It’s also very difficult with paparazzi following you around and causing additional relationship problems that shouldn’t even be there at all, but that’s, unfortunately, the way it is. I just HOPE they wind up together because they definitely seem very right for each other. I just know I LOVED them in JUMPER and hope and pray the studio makes Jumper II with them! Hayden, especially, was destined to be on the big screen, he’s just to gorgeous and sexy…and yes, talented!

  • NohoCycleChic

    Meh, Hayden is attractive. I’ve known sexier, and as for them leaving separately it was probably so that Hayden could chase me all over Griffith Park on my bike! LOL

    As for her new show; good for her. Yes, it’s her connections that got her into this horror movie of a career and romance and I don’t envy her one single bit.

    Personally, I’m looking forward to long-deep kisses with with a true gentleman, and if I’m lucky, amnesia-inducing sex! I want him to fuvk the last six years of my life away from my conciseness!

  • The80sRule

    Does she ever smile when she’s out with him & vice versa?

  • NohoCycleChic

    (Our numbers match, he’s no sleaze.)

  • Why?

    Why leave separately? Rachel herself said it isn’t like they are a “secret” or anything. Usually couples when they first start getting caught out together leave a place separately but not once they have been seen together over and over for years. If it isn’t a secret why not just walk out together like a normal happy couple It isn’t like they are some secret new A list Hollywood Golden Couple Seems like an attempt at attention..Also the paps just happened to be feet away outside a random Thai restaurant in LA right as it is announced Rachel’s show is given a full season. Hmm.What are the odds of that just happening? Not very good. I won’t be surprised if unhappy rumors of them start soon enough just in time to get more publicity for the show. They both leave separately with perfect pouty looks on their faces just asking to start rumors. Looks like the pictures were taken just a couple of hours ago at most. It was 4pm when this was posted in LA and the sun is low in the back round. So that means they were photographed and posted about within an hour maybe two at most. Talk about an impressive publicity turn around. The only one I have ever seen that is faster is Kate Bosworth. Seems like there are always three or four photo agencies that always snap Rachel’s candid photos. I know people always complain that Rachel Bilson calls the paps on herself but Hayden Christensen is being just as bad if his fans would be honest with themselves. They aren’t seen together for weeks and weeks and then suddenly as she promotes her new show they are and as the decision is made to give Hart of Dixie a full season they get spotted. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how that one happened. The oh so private couple always seems to have amazing timing when there is something new to promote they suddenly are never apart . Well at least for a few days long enough to get the attention needed. With Rachel’s show now getting a full season. Hayden would have to be the one visiting her more often for any ” real” relationship to last in Hollywood. I like what she said on Regis and Kelly last week. They gave her almost no interview time as George Clooney was the first guest. She said when asked about southern gentlemen in the south while filming the first few episodes of Hart if she met any. She responded that the show would now be shot on a lot in LA but that ” Imaginary boyfriends are great because they do whatever you tell them to do.” Well she would know about that wouldn’t she. Not surprising Hart got a full season since Ringer and Secret Circle did too. Most likely all three shows will end up being one season wonders if they don’t have better ratings by the end of the season.

  • anthony

    Glad to hear, it’s a good show.

  • Lizzie
  • NohoCycleChic

    Okay, so he met up with her AFTER chasing me all over Griffith Park! Anyways, after all this time who could possibly care anymore.

  • NohoCycleChic

    Eddie boy was right, he should have just told the truth. Now, it’s too late.

  • mkhay

    i love her but the show is boring

  • Hahahaha

    Yeah!!! This show is good and I’m glad it will be on for a full season!!! Go Rachel!!!! I can see why Rachel digs on Hayden. He looks like he is well in endowed!!! Hahahaha!!! Happy 4 Rachel and her show!! Jealous peeps that doubted her are really fit to be tied right now. I just love it!!

  • Hahahaha

    See!!! Look at the front of Hayden’s Nike shorts. It looks like he is well hung!! Hahaha!!

  • @Karina

    @Karina: Marriage is a very simple thing it doesn’t matter who you are. When two people want to do it they just do. They don’t drag it over for years and years and call engagements off and on and off again. Looks at Paul McCartney would of the biggest stars ever because he was a Beatle and he got married the other day. After losing his first wife and having an awful second one. Where his divorce was dragged out in the press. If marriage is important to a person they don’t waste time they just do it. Because you never know what will happen in life. Prince William and Kate Middleton went through a lot more pain and problems with the press yet they still got married and didn’t drag it out once they became engaged. Even the Kardashian’s manage to get married and they are horrid.I doubt Hayden and Rachel will ever marry each other at this point and I don’t think many are betting they would. She is moving forward with her career again while she can still and staying in LA for a long time into the future with her new show. What split them last time according to their people was the distance. Doesn’t look like the distance has changed at all. Jumper 2 also isn’t happening. Several “stars” chose not to return. I am going to guess one of them was Jamie Bell. He wasn’t interested in the movie so Fox wasn’t interested.

  • NohoCycleChic


    He’s not the only hung Viking in the universe! Trust me. ;P

  • Wrinkles.

    @Hahahaha: That is called fabric I believe. Hahaha. It is a bit too high up to be THAT. Unless you have an Arnold S. issue from steroiding too much. Maybe that is why he never irons anything. Those wrinkles in his clothes do wonders. HAHAHA.

  • WhySoSerious….

    Do they ever look happy to be together. I mean her show was just saved for rest of the reason from the chopping block and she is with her “BoyFriend” and still seems miserable around him. They both always look like they are having their teeth pulled to be with each other. Last time she smiled around him was because she was on the phone talking to some one else!!!! and having her picture taken. Yeah that just screams happy couple. As the Joker would say. WHY SO SERIOUS. If it really is just the papz as some fans try to claim Why not ignore the papz walk arm and arm and be like screw this and just be happy. Of course the would require them enjoying time together. Harhar.

  • Cheshire contagion


    Yeah right, because I know I always walk around with a big silly grin on my face even when no one is around, walking out of a restaurant by myself or on a sidewalk or in a parking lot alone. Sometimes I whistle a happy tune too.
    Look, everyone else is smiling too. Look at all the grinning people. So whatever you do, don’t stop grinning people. *wink*

    Do you seriously think the paps only took these few photos? So we are not seeing them in sequence or the whole context. There’s always more than meets the eye.

  • tina

    Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel have been together 26 years and never wanted to be married.

  • devaney

    Well it pays so much when the creator / producer / director of HOD is husband of the (lead) star’s best friend in the whole damn planet!
    Utterly shame – it consistently tanks in the rating to the max!

  • lexy hates bilson

    LMAO!! Why are they leaving separately?? Do they think they are in the same league as Gwenny Paltrow and Chris Martin??
    Rachel should be at they synagoue thanking God for the day she met that idiot Josh Schwartz!!!

  • searlus

    Manakin keeps on sinking deeper & deeper & deeper like a sleazy loser!

  • tina

    I love Hart of Dixie. CW shows don’t get big ratings to begin with. It’s a small network. They must have some confidence in the show to order a full season. They are giving it a chance to be discovered.

    I love the latest preview for the show.

  • That

    If you people think they are exactly alike, you’re operating in a fantasy world and don’t know anything about either of them. And, WTF is with them leaving separately? OMG, how ridiculous. She is so hung up on this idea that everyone is dying for info on them, in reality, I doubt the interest reaches beyond the 75 or so people who will post in this thread. And after what was put out earlier, she’s desperate to be 1/2 of a HW “power couple,” she fancies herself Angelina to some dude’s Brad Pitt. She’s going to have to find a new victim, Hayden hasn’t worked in about 3 years and doesn’t show any signs of any desire to work any time in the future. That does NOT make a power couple. Just saying Rachel, just saying.

  • Lizzie

    @That: When has she claimed to fancy herself as Angelina? Lexy Hates Bilson? Since that’s all that chick talks about. You don’t why they were leaving separately. She could have been talking to somebody or went to bathroom why he went out to the car. No big deal, “just saying”.

  • lexy hates bilson

    but they share a car…and they always act like they are NOT together when they ARE together. If Tom Cruise can hold Katie Holmes hand in public I think it’s OK that these 2 has beens act like a couple. Again, we’re not talking about 2 incredibly famous people who value their privacy like Gwenny and Chris!!
    Why would Hayden leave her now?? She can finally afford to pay some of the bills thanks to Josh Schwartz and those ice cream ads. Maybe she can buy him a car so they can get to places separately too!!
    Who knows…if Hayden plays his cards right maybe he can get a job on Rachel’s show too!!

  • Jax

    Oh Lizzie, so naive. You obviously don’t know how the game is played in HW. For you and your BF in Anywhere, USA/The World, yes, that’s how it would happen. In HW? No. Everything is done for appearances sake, especially for attention wh*res like Rachel Bilson.

  • austine

    Well what a surpirsed – NON!
    Its from the CW after all… d only network who keeps producing awful shows & hiring bad/non actors; just look at their ratings – “it constantly non-existent”!

  • Chelly

    Wow, he does need to learn how to dress. Talk about mismatched clothes. I wonder if he’s color blind…

  • Pepto

    Most of the young guys I see around, at the mall etc. are dressed in shorts like that. And they’re usually too big, so they sag down and they constantly have to hike them up. Now, as for the flannel shirt and black socks ala my Grandpa, IDK. Maybe that was part of Rachel’s “edgy” fashionista vibe? *eyeroll*

  • Coz

    @26, she’s a good Jew girl that loves to make Christmas cookies and exchange gifts wrapped in Xmas paper. It boggles my mind that anyone takes this fake as hell chick seriously. Really? Wow.

  • Southern? What?

    To the twit that said that she loved anything Southern, Hart of Dixie doesn’t represent the South, just the stereotypes people have about us.

  • jaeger

    Damn so sure that Josh Schwarts been “throwing up lots of blood & tears” already just to even keep that show on the “FILLER’s list” of CW.

  • WhySoSerious….

    @Cheshire contagion: There is a difference between not smiling all the time and never smiling around each other. They smile when they are AWAY from each other but nooo that isn’t strange at all is it?. The full sets of pictures are usually found at one of her fan sites not long after JJ posts any new photos of her and guess what… No one is smiling in those either. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHa.

  • Anonymous

    @WhySoSerious….: Who cares, you guys have been using the “they never smile around each other” “they never look happy together” bits for the past 4 years. I think it’s about time to realized they clearly make each other happy. Maybe you don’t see it. But that doesn’t mean it’s not true. They are both adults, if one of them wasn’t happy in the relationship, by now I think one would back out. I guess with you putting them down or making rude comments makes you feel better than have at it. You know that doesn’t change anything. Saying they don’t ever smile around each other, what’s that going to change? Make you feel better? I guess..

  • Goldie and Kurt? HAHAHA

    @tina: Goldie and Kurt? Hahahahahahahaha. Goldie Hawn had been married before Kurt Russel and had had two children with him. Where the heck did you think Kate Hudson her daughter came from or her brother for that matter. Kurt had also had previous relationships of that nature before Goldie and Kurt got together. They both had tried marriage in Hollywood and decided to never marry again from day 1 of their relationship. Hayden and Rachel on the other hand have both spoke long before each other and during this whole on going saga with them that they “WANT” to actually be married one day to someone. So they are NOT like Goldie and Kurt at all. Nice stretch though. You should have tried Charlize Theron and Stewart Townson who said they would never marry until everyone could in the USA. But of course Charlize and Stewart broke up once she started changing her mind. Also there is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who said they would never marry after having both been married before. Although even now they are changing their minds because their kids would like them to. Susan Sarandon and her husband Tim Robbins also tried to non marriage route after she had been married before and after 20 years they still split. Hayden and Rachel probably don’t stand a chance in the long run.
    If Hayden and Rachel were the political types that had said they would NEVER get married I could believe it, but they were very very publicly engaged and then it all fell apart. Now they are in an awkward after broken engagement phase. I would sooner put my money on Susan and Tim Robbins getting back together than Hayden and Rachel ever marrying each other. I wouldn’t be surprised if they got married one day but not to each other. If she is smart she will get a Josh Schwartz type like her best friend from highschool did. She told Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately she tried to set up her friend with Ben McKenzie from The OC originally, luckily for her friend asked her about the writer instead. As Rachel put it ” Like an idiot I went right for the actor of course” instead of thinking to set her friend up with the creator and writer. I wonder if that was a bit of a freudian slip on her part.

  • WinkWink.NudgeNudge.
    What also was said about the full season being added.
    @Chelly: I wonder if hes just blind in general to A LOT of things. ~wink wink~ The things he wears sometimes. BAHAHA. She isn’t dressed to the nines herself is she? That sweater with snakes or worm looking things on it and the cut off shorts with sandals and finally she carries the Birkin bag again but with this outfit. For someone about to give advice about shoes on a site, she could really learn how to put herself together better. There is a difference between looking like you don’t try to hard and looking like YOU DON’T ATTEMPT TRYING AT ALL. I was beginning to wonder if that Birkin was a one time loner for her birthday. Because she wasn’t seen with it again until now. She had to bring out the BIG BAG for the big press op you know. Hahahaa.@Lizzie: If I remember correctly her father was trying to pitch Rachel last year as the next Angelina Jolie in a big video game movie franchise he was going to create from scratch for her. She was suppose to be the next Lara Croft aka Tombraider. Yeah that turned out well. He was silenced and never opened his mouth again. He made himself look like a fool while he was suppose to be promoting a video game the company he works for actually made. Instead she got a job through someone else she knew besides her father.

    You know what is really a scary thought she has two younger sisters can you imagine what they will probably turn into in about 10 , 15 , 20 years from now. Staging photos,running to same games,pulling the same tricks. etc Bugging poor Josh Schwartz still via their big sister’s best friend he stupidly married. ( As Rachel said in a recent interview about Schwartz ” He just can’t get rid of me” ~giggles~ Yeah I am sure he is aware of that fact on a daily basis.) I really hope not. Maybe because they are only half sisters they will turn out better. But then again if Rachel keeps dragging them out like accesories whenever she needs press I doubt it.

    @Anonymous: @Anonymous: What I don’t think you grasp is that many people find it all amusing. Entertaining,annoying, and just plain LMAOC some times. Sort of like the Kardashians, Kate Bosworth,Jersey Shore, Heidi and Spencer Prat. ( Yes they do manage to still get talked about). The Hills cast. The old Laguna Beach cast. Anyone that was ever on reality tv or teenage dramas. What people say doesn’t change a thing either way. I mean this is just JJ after all. but bad or good things still get said . That is the world we live in . From gossip blogs to twitter/facebook and the people in our own lives. Sh@t happens, Sh@t gets said. Honestly if someone like Rachel Bilson or Hayden Christensen doesn’t like it they can just quit the business it isn’t like anyone would notice five years later. There would be no public out cry of that I am sure.
    You know why people think it is fake.. because that is some peoples opinions. That is pretty much it . Because.
    Although I can not believe I am quoting this but I like what Ashton Kutcher said to that chick he cheated on his wife Demi Moore of six years with. That he is an actor so 90 percent of what he does in his life now is fake … and” it is nice to have these real moments” in his life. Real meaning hooking up anyone but Demi I guess. So he basically was implying even though he was in what seemed to be a successful Hollywood marriage with a stable career that 90 percent is faked in their day to day lives. The idea of that really isn’t that shocking is it? Actors by trade fake things all day, from the characters they play to the way they behave during interviews. They have to pretend to be someone they aren’t and love people they don’t in film after film. So if you lived in that world after a while faking anything would be the norm after a while. Just keeping up with the status quo and the Kardashians you might say. I dont know if that says more about the industry or someone like Rachel and Hayden or maybe people that chose to be in the industry.

  • xax

    ok seriously what is up with these comments. they’re really from the same person or group. pathetic.

    Thats good news. Its a good show. I dont understand the Rachel Hayden relationship though. Just odd…

    .rCouples don’t come out seperately if they suppose to be a couple. Why would they do that in la and not in new york? Rachel had no trouble in new york taking pictures with him. Rachel ran behind him in new york and he got tired are doing it. When people start taking pic not together there is trouble just say that was not together. Jared make up things to make it look good for rachel. They could went to different places to eat. They have them there you . Soon it will be splitvile for them. Hayden has his. Own car and she has her. She made sure people saw her not with him

  • Johnny English

    Good for Rachel Bilson. She’s underrated by far too many. I happen to think that she is a lot more talented than people realize. She is very good as Zoe in Hart Of Dixie. Unlike her boyfriend who simply can’t act. No doubt he will whine his way through Battlecreek as he has whined his way through the prequels, Jumper, Takers, Vanishing, that Glass thing and that very whiney Life as a House thing. Good job that the beautiful Miss Bilson actually does love the mopey faced doofus.
