The Hart of Dixie star has joined ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club as a series regular, our sister site Deadline reports, playing Scott Carpenter, the laid-back husband of Yvonne Strahovski’s Rene.

So what does this mean for Bethel’s future in Bluebell? Per Deadline, Bethel is only slated to appear in eight of Wives‘ 10 episodes, and given Dixie‘s shortened fourth season — The CW only ordered 10 episodes this time around — scheduling wasn’t an issue.
