It sounds like Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to the network that made her a star with Buffy the Vampire Slayer has paid off with The CW announcing that a full season for three of their new drama series including Ringer as well as Kevin Williamson’s Secret Circle and Josh Schwartz’s Hart of Dixie starring Rachel Bilson. Honestly, I’m surprised that The CW is ordering full seasons for all of these new shows, but apparently they’ve all sat well on the ratings and seem to be hitting all the right demographics to stay alive. Personally, none of the shows tickled my fancy to add to my line-up every week, but surely fans will be happy to hear about the networks faith in each of these new series. Hit the jump to read the full press release.
