Sarah Michelle Gellar: 'The Ringer' Details Revealed!

Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to television in The Ringer, a new series for CBS, and details about the show have been revealed!

The show’s producer Peter Traugott explained to EW that the show is about revenge.

“It’s an edgy thriller about redemption and about revenge. There’s a point of view of two twin sisters who grew apart over a tragedy in their past. And one now seeks redemption and the other one seeks revenge. The sister who is seeking redemption has had a much more troubled life. When her fancy pants sister disappears, she takes over her life. She’s living the life of her more successful sister only to come to find out that her life is equally as fraught with danger and complication. Her sister dies in a boating accident. The other sister takes on her persona, only to come to find out that they have a hit out on her.”

Sarah will play both Bridget, the sister who takes over Siobhan’s life, as well as Siobhan, the other sister. Siobhan will appear in the series via flashbacks a la the show Damages.

    YAYYY Another one who is going to get married lol

  • Ella

    Love SMG, but hate the premise of the show. The plot just doesn’t sound like it’s sustainable for a long-time series. I mean, how long can someone be on the run without it getting tedious and repetitive?

  • Sean

    What’s wrong with her nose?

  • Ella

    @Sean, SMG has always had a very distinct nose. Certain angles and photoshoots play it down, but it’s incredibly unique and her own. I’m happy to see she hasn’t rushed out for rhinoplasty!

  • anon

    Those earring are gorgeous!!!!!

    I hope this works out for sarah becasue it will be greato see her on tv and she’s a great actress aswell :)

    i’ve loved sarah’s work, but this kind of sounds dumb and i can’t take a producer who says the words “fancy pants” to describe a character seriously. maybe the execution sounds a lot better than the premise though. i thought she had filmed a pilot for hbo before she got pregnant and was going to return to it eventually? and yeah, @Sean: her nose has always looked like that, even when she was a young teen on all my children. i never really noticed it until she got fairly thin the 5th or 6th season of buffy and it became more obvious.

  • Ella

    @Gina, she did film a pilot for HBO that didn’t get picked up for series. :(

  • gina

    @Ella:

    aw, boo. i didn’t know anything about it, but most hbo shows do crazy well so i was excited for her to be back. i’m pretty certain her choice to scale back on projects after buffy was exactly that..her choice to focus on her family/marriage, not lack of offers. which is awesome for her…but sucks for us smg fans. i think she could’ve/should’ve gone the romantic comedy route rather than horror though. i kind of want her to play a B again though, like in cruel intentions. if “the ringer” doesn’t work out, i think she should do something with a single-camera format on a cable network. not even necessarily the lead, but a solid role. and for the love of god, not some multi-camera sitcom on nbc with something like, “single mom katie james is a high-powered attorney looking for love in all the wrong places. her staff…insert sassy black friend, dumb blonde secretary, and her ex-husband/boss don’t make things easy.” i’d hate to see her do crap like that.

  • sandy

    well, the plot doesn’t sound like it’s all that – but we’ll see. and hey: she seems 2 be back on screen and that’s what matters! i’m excited 2 see her after that long time!!

    btw: the pictures are from the “the air i breathe” premiere and i agree: this is her nose – this is what makes her special! and the pilot which she shoot in 2009 for hbo was for “the wonderful maladys”.

  • Amber

    I htink the pilot sounds interesting! I’ll watch for sure if it gets picked up! I love SMG!

  • Felipe

    can not wait to see! Sassy will do a great job as always! good that she is back I’m very happy about it
    ah, your nose is beautiful I love her so I am happy that she has not changed ,i love Sarah Michelle Gellar and everything she does !!!!!
