Wilson Bethel is leaving Hart of Dixie behind, but only temporarily.

EW has confirmed that Bethel has landed a series regular role on ABC’s 10-episode drama The Astronaut Wives Club from Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. The series is based on Lily Koppel’s book and tells the real story of the women married to some of the nation’s biggest space heroes.

Bethel will play Scott Carpenter, an astronaut and husband to Yvonne Strahovski’s Rene Carpenter. According to Deadline, Bethel will appear in eight of the 10 episodes, which will allow him to continue filming Hart of Dixie.
