Market research from season one suggested that people didn’t enjoy the cybernetic side of Twilight as much as the network had hoped. That was why season two went real world so heavily. It also featured several actors from Dixie in recurring or even main series roles since the other show had finally ended. Most of the actors enjoyed their characters so it was easy to get them to return. And with early stories taking the team back to southern Texas it was easy to write the Dixie characters into the series.
