The abbreviated fourth season of the CW’s small town medical dramedy Hart of Dixie will debut on Jan. 9 and air in the series’ most recent Friday 9 PM slot. In announcing the return date for Hart of Dixie, the CW kept short of announcing that it would be the show’s final season as has been rumored. The upcoming fourth season consists of 10 episodes to accommodate the pregnancy of star Rachel Bilson. The comedy-drama has been a soft ratings performer on the network but has done very well on digital platforms.
Also starting on Jan. 9, the CW will air the remaining four original episodes of summer magic reality series Masters of Illusion from 8-8:30 PM, followed by a Whose Line Is It Anyway? repeat leading into Hart of Dixie.
