The artist formerly known as Buffy is back, baby. Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to series television with her new show, Ringer, and was at Comic-Con yesterday to give the world a sneak peek. Think twins, intrigue, stolen identities and lots of men after her attention, head and/or love.
After eight years away from TV, Geller returns doing double duty in a film-noirish series about twins with secrets and lies in their past and future. Confused? Watch the trailer.
At her Comic-Con panel, Gellar acknowledged that the show isn’t trying to be another Buffy the Vampire Slayer — nothing can be. But she hoped her fans from her days slaying vampires would follow her on her new adventure, she said in the Entertainment Weekly-moderated panel.
So how else is the Ringer different from Buffy? “Gellar joked, “I got to shoot a gun and Buffy never got a gun.” And, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she spoke about her two characters’ motivations.
So, will you follow Gellar to her new show even if she won’t be saving the world this time?
