As if there weren't enough hot guys in Bluebell already, one more is heading into town: Robert Buckley has just been cast in an upcoming episode of "Hart of Dixie," E! Online reports.

And since hot guys don't stay single for long in The CW's southern charmer, the "One Tree Hill" alum is set to woo one of Bluebell's most popular ladies -- Lemon Breeland (Jaime King). 

So how does Buckley's character meet our favorite Bluebell Belle? He will play Peter, a sweet, ordinary guy who is just passing through town, and he has a chance encounter with Lemon ... which has the potential to build into something more. That's good news for Lemon, as she hasn't had the best of luck in the romance department as of late.

Unfortunately, right now Buckley is only scheduled for one episode. But maybe he'll stick around longer depending on how things pan out with Lemon. 

This isn't the first new good-looking guy to swing by Bluebell for Season 3. "Chuck" alum Ryan McPartlin is set to charm not just one but all the ladies on "Hart of Dixie" -- greedy, no? Get more scoop on Season 3 details and new characters here before the premiere.

"Hart of Dixie" Season 3 premieres Monday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
