Watching anyone lose a job sucks. That's why, even if you
don't watch Hart of Dixie, you can't help but be a little moved by its stars'
farewell to the four-year-old CW series. While the network still hasn't officially
announced that Hart of Dixie is cancelled, the show creator and some of its
stars have been saying their goodbyes on social media. Jaime King took to
Instagram on Friday night to post the sweetest letter of thanks to the show,
her castmates, the crew, and even her own character, Lemon.
my beloved Bluebell," the actress, 35, wrote to the fictional
Alabama town. "It has been the best 4 years of my life, giving my heart
and soul to this role & to our dear fans of Hart of Dixie."
She tells star Rachel Bilson, "[Y]ou know I did this show to be close to you buddy, I
Then she sums up everything that she's loved about
Lemon, and how she's taught her how to be a loyal friend to others. "[T]radition
is great if it means being true to yourself, if not let it go gracefully or with
the middle finger," she says, concluding with our favorite line: "[B]e

No wonder Jaime is part of Taylor Swift's amazing circle of girlfriends (and just asked Tay to be her second baby's godmother). That's the
kind of loving, supportive talk we'd like to see a little more of in show
business, and everywhere else for that matter.
From Lemons first entrance, to the last 2 final series episodes, I shall take my final bow. Farewell, my beloved Bluebell. It has been the best 4 years of my life, giving my heart and soul to this role & to our dear fans of Hart of Dixie. To Leila Gerstein you are my idol, a role model for every woman, a true storyteller, a BRILLIANT show runner & mother, you baffle me with your ability- you gave me a character that will never leave me because you saw that she was in me, that I could make her human, vulnerable, a punch in the face lovable Lemon. You let me take her and make her my own, knowing from the beginning that that is what I would do- make her so real it hurt because she just wanted so much to love and be loved. Thank you my dear cast & crew- we were on some ride or die shit- through the laughter, tears, pushes and pulls- how we have grown through each other so beautifully. To @joshschwartz76 & @TheFakeEmpire team- you are so NOT a fake empire- you lead me to the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and actually touch it. I wished for that my entire Midwestern childhood. Zoe, isn't it funny how enemies are just one in the same? Rachel B- you know I did this show to be close to you buddy, I love you. @cw_network, Mark Pedowitz, Lori Openden - there are no words. #ClassAct To our fans- You have lifted me and given me a gift greater than my wildest dreams. I thank you. I thank you. I thank you. And I love you more than words can ever express. And Lemon, you taught me so much- break the rules- be naughty for the ones you care about- be the BEST FUCKING FRIEND because loyalty requires shenanigans sometimes and being a best friend means that sometimes we act stupid, senseless, blinded by what looks like selfishness but is actually the purest love and wanting the best for that other person- tradition is great if it means being true to yourself, if not let it go gracefully or with the middle finger- you don't have to rely on the approval or acceptance of others to love yourself, just love yourself because you are love, be a feminist & the only thing close to being "perfect" is following your heart. We are one. #HartofDixeForever Xx
