It's Official. R.I.P. Ringer And The Secret Circle!

| Filed under: TV NewsSarah Michelle GellarSad Sad

secret circle ringer canceled cw

Ugh! This is devastating!

They both had so much potential!

After being on the bubble for the past few months, Ringer and The Secret Circle apparently just couldn't cut it on the CW, and both series have been officially canceled from the network's line-up next year!

Tears!

However, both Nikita and freshman series Hart of Dixie have been given new life, and will reportedly be joining FIVE new drama series that have been picked up for the Fall '12-'13 season, which include that Beauty and the Beast reboot and the Sex & the City prequel!

Well…maybe now that Sarah Michelle Gellar has some free time she can touch base with Ryan Murphy and see if he has a spot for her on the new season of American Horror Story!

But we're going to miss her as Bridget and Siobhan! So lame!

Gone far before their time!

Check out a full list - and description - of the new shows coming to the CW this fall…AFTER THE JUMP!

Arrow - Executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg the series stars Stephen Arnell, Jamey Sheridan, David Ramsey, Colin Donnell, and, pending The River's status at ABC, Paul Blackthorne. It's an hourlong drama described as a modern retelling of DC Comics' Green Arrow, who's set to be played by Arnell.

The Carrie Diaries - Executive produced by Amy Harris, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein and Candace Bushnell this series stars AnnaSophia Robb, Austin Butler and Brendan Dooling, and is based on a book by Candace Bushnell and follows Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw during her younger years in the 1980's, when she was first coming to question love, sex, friendship and family.

Cult - Executive produced by Rockne O'Bannon, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein, and Jason Ensler, Cult stars Jessica Lucas as a young production assistant who works on a popular TV show and teams up with a blogger (Matt Davis) in an investigation when they discover that there may be fans of the show re-creating crime scenes featured in the series.

Beauty and the Beast - One of two network TV takes on Beauty and the Beast this season (the other is for ABC), this one comes from Jennifer Levin, Sherri Cooper, Paul J. Witt, C. Anthony Thomas, Ron Koslow, Bill Haber and stars Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan as Beauty and the Beast respectively. The series is described as a modern day retelling of the classic story and loosely based on CBS' 80's series by the same name.

First Cut - Executive produced by Jennie Snyder Urman and Dan Jinks, this one stars Mamie Gummer as a new doctor who's trying to figure out the ins and outs of working at a hospital, which she soon discovers is not all that different from high school. Also among the cast are Justin Hartley, Michael Rady, Jack Coleman, Kelly J. McCreary, Aja Naomi King and Necar Zadegan.

    Only saw the ringer once and that was enough…Worst show ever. Sucks to be out of a job though for the production team etc.

    Keeping Nakita and Some Dixie show over higher rated Secret Circle?!?! They must be getting those other shows for next to nothing, sad the CW can't afford higher budgeted shows and will likely go under soon on their race to the bottom with poorer quality shows with lower fan bases. Well they tried. RIP CW, the writing is on the wall and the industry knows it.



  5. 5

    I tried to get into Ringer and I watched right up until mid-February then I just couldn't take it anymore. Too predictable & SMG was simply miscast. Great actress but in the wrong role. Looking forward to Dallas in June - hope it lives up to the hype.

    The Secret Circle was such a great show! it got a 7.5/8.0 on most sites, the CW righht now is giving up so easily, if i could renew one show it would be the secret circle.

    its not to late to save the shows you love!



  7. 7

    Re: eicarr – Nikita is a really good show, you don't know what you're talking about. Vampire Diaries and Nikita are two of the best shows on TV right now.

    I don't know who is running these networks but they clearly have straw for brains. RINGER was the best show going. It takes time to build a loyal audience. I liked Circle as well. Give them another season. Please.

  18. Dusk says – reply to this

    TSC must come back to television. We the fans CANNOT and WOULD NOT accepted CW's decision which is completely bs.

    Such a joke……secret circle was so good!!!!! I don't know what way the CW rates it, do they just take the viewings from people in the US? Or do they take in to account viewings in other parts of the world? I thought it was one of the best shows in a long time, with a great cast. It had so much potential :0(

    The CW is being stupid!!!! I loved the secret circle and they should hve kept it!! And the new shows their put on the air nxt fall is stupid: first cut-tht getting out of high school to find out the real world is just like it! It's played out get a new plot!!! Beauty and the beast- modern day retelling of the story! Seriously!!! We all know salat happens!!! Cult- do I even have to say any thing we hve enough crime shows!!! Arrow- okay they already had smallville enough with the heroes we can just see the movies and last but now least the carries diaries- I know tht it's suppose to be about Carrie before sex and the city but get me a hand if you read the books and not watch the show sex and the city before. Okay nobody good. Why make a series of a book tht no one knows about tht isn't over 30!!! I'm 17 and this pisses me off tht they take a good show then try 2 put this shit on in replacement!!!!!

    WHATTTT???? Secret circle was seriously getting so good! Can not believe this! ugh

    Killing the secret Circle was hasty. I really do think that it could have improved in the ratings if it was given a second season. Critics also seemed to think on that line, cause despite the moderately successful ratings most reviewers felt it would be renewed up until the last minute. Like the vampire diaries it needed time gather steam. A point about the vampire diaries is that it came out during the height of the vampire craze, a few months after the first twilight movie.

    The secret circle was created as a counterpart to the vampire diaries, so in turn it got a similar budget and episode order. Now if they could strip the show down and reduce the budget a bit they might be able to do something with it. Showcase or MTV could be interested. Both channels have similar programming (Lost Girl on Showcase and teen Wolf on MTV)

    Ringer was no surprise, the show never really went anywhere and didn't really get much better. It was entirely dependent on Sarah Michelle Gellar

    Things to consider.



  32. 32

    I liked both shows. Ringer sometimes got on my nerves but i kept watching cause it was very interesting but now that Bridgette knows her sister is alive i'm bummed i won't be able to see what happens next. The Secret Circle kept getting better and better i loved the finale and the 2nd season seemed like was gonna me really good so i am bummed about both. Wish they'd reconsider.

  33. Jack says – reply to this


    33

    Kids in the Hall was cancelled after season 1 and then renewed, as was Jericho, although Jericho was cancelled after the second season



  34. 34

    I fucking can't believe they canceled The Secret Circle. I am pissed. They keep bs shows like GOSSIP GIRL and all that worthless crap but that one was so good!!! UGH! My favorite show!!!



  35. 35

    They both sucked. They were nothing more than shows about pretty people who were annoying to watch. Here's a hint for the producers of the next generation of shows. Work on decent scripts and show ideas first. And when you cast find decent actors who are at least somewhat likable. Being pretty and young should be the last priority on your list. I mean really? Why does everyone think that all vampires need to be beautiful and bisexual?

  36. Emilee says – reply to this


    36

    Cannot believe they cancelled The Secret Circle. I think Nikita and Hart of Dixie should have gotten the axe.

    To all the hate: if you're just an evil bitch, get over it!

    We're not giving up hope on getting season 2 on a different network. Sister vs Sister in season 2 will happen if we the fans fight to make it happen! #BringBackRinger

    Sucky two of the three shows I actively watched on the CW. It would be cool if sarah finds her way to AHS, love that show. Well two less reasons to watch the channel well until they get rid of ANTM then all done.

    They really did Ringer and Secret Circle dirty. I really wanted to see another season for both shows. They were both really good after their rocky start and all the drama was just getting started. I will watch The CW for Vampire Diaries and this last season of Gossip Girl but that's it. I'm not going to sit up here and really get into a show then watch it get cut. That's a waste of time.

    Nikita is the most under rated show on TV right now. It is a fantastic show with great writing and actors but it's on the wrong network. I'm so glad it got renewed , I had my doubts for a while that they would but they made the right decision, I stopped watching Secret Circle and Ringer ages ago. But Nikita is the show I look forward to most each week.

  48. TH says – reply to this


    48

    How sad the Secret Circle was such a good show with massive potential especially for a freshman show with a young cast you can see that their were stars in the making especially Pheobe Tonkin. I think the CW are making a very silly decision with time the Secret Circle will be a mega hit like The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. As for Ringer i thought it was great each episode it kept me on the edge of my sit wanting more and surprised and shocked each episode. I think if Ringer was to be on another network with an older demographic like ABC,NBC, OR FOX i think it would have been way more successful because it was much better than Revenge and they both have lots of similarities its just that The CW attracts mainly young girls and teenage girls who wouldn't be too attracted to Ringer there for they wouldn't get much ratings.

    Although I am so upset that both Ringer and Secret Circle are cancelled I am glad Nikita is coming back, don't care about Dixie hart rubbish but they should be keeping them all in my opinion. Ringer and TSC are both great shows if people only gave them a chance and so is Nikita.
    Give the fans all three as there is nothing else on telly any more!

    Ringer was sooo good - very upset!!

    Ringer was sooo good loved it- very upset, I hope someone picks it up!!



  53. 53

    Hart of Dixie is renewed? Are you freaking kidding me? Who watches that shit? So pissed that 8 shows I spent time learning about the plot and characters are going to be taken away. Just to usher in new shows this fall that will ultimately be cancelled.



  54. 54

    Eh i watched them both… secret circle was getting dull, and I loveeee the ringer, but I can see how it might be difficult to continue to stretch the plot line… the new replacement shows sound lame.

    OMG..!!! why !!! "The Secret Circle" i was so excited for the 2nd season. the season finale was so good, why would they cancel it

  56. Vanessa says – reply to this


    56

    Never saw Nikita but it looks lame and it's on a FRIDAY! Who stays home on Friday? No one… That being said… I could care LESS about The Ringer but The Secret Circle RIGHT after Vampire Diaries it was PERFECT! I mean seriously it is a GREAT show and it should be kept on the air!

  57. AzerLazer says – reply to this


    57

    Why would they cancel The secret circle when they renew hart of dixie
    The secret circle has more viewers in average than the shows they renewed
    It Has so MUCH potential to become EVEN GREATER SHOW
    *sigh* My thursdays wont be the same



  58. 58

    They need to keep secret circle!!! They finally come out with a good show only to drop it for no reason. Wake up! Drop shows that don't actually bring in the ratings. There are other shows with lower ratings. Don't drop one o the writer shows you come out with that brings actually ratings! Come on people! Keep the circle alive!!!

  59. Blitz says – reply to this


    59

    Not only was Nikita horrible it didn't get the ratings that TSC did. I don't even want to touch HOD. The network is on its last legs. When you don't renew your second highest rated show but renew a show where viewership declined you know you are at your end.
