The CW orders full series of Ringer

RingerThe CW has picked up Sarah Michelle Gellar drama Ringer for a full series.

It is the first pick up of the season for The CW but is hardly surprising given its solid performance so far – bar last week’s dip – and the amount of buzz surrounding the drama. The drama marks Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to a lead role in television since the finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer several years ago. Since the supernatural series ended Gellar has mostly worked on films. The drama also stars Ioan Gruffudd, Nestor Campbell, Mike Colter and Kristoffer Polaha.

While Ringer has now been picked up for a full season fellow new dramas The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie had yet to receive such orders. Going by the ratings so far for The Secret Circle its chances are good but less certain is Hart of Dixie.
