ross philips enlisted hart of dixie FOX's 'Enlisted' casts 'Hart of Dixie's' Ross Philips: Is Tom Long leaving Bluebell?

Ross Philips is joining the army.

The “Hart of Dixie” fan-favorite just landed a recurring role in FOX’s midseason comedy “Enlisted,” TVLine reports.

Philips joins the army sitcom as an “entitled and inexperienced 2nd Lieutenant named Schneeberger who thinks very highly of himself.” Schneeberger’s smug attitude will cause him to butt heads with Geoff Stults‘ Pete — and bond with Angelique Cabral‘s Jill.

So what does Philips’ new gig mean for his scene-stealing “Hart of Dixie” character, sweet southern gentleman Tom Long — is he leaving Bluebell?

Not to worry, “Hart of Dixie” fans: since his “Enlisted” role is not a long stint, and the new sitcom wraps shooting this month, he will continue to appear on The CW’s southern drama — which is good news for Tom’s new wife Wanda.

“Enlisted” premieres Friday, Jan. 10 at 9:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
