Two of the new dramas on The CW – Ringer and The Secret Circle – did not survive this latest round of renewal announcements by the network.
According to a report at TV Line, both freshman dramas have been cancelled.
‘Ringer’ starred Sarah Michelle Gellar (from Buffy, the Vampire Slayer fame) as identical twin sisters Siobhan and Bridget; the latter who is on the run from the mob and poses as the former, a presumed dead wealthy New York socialite who has a price on her head as well.
‘The Secret Circle’, based on the book series by L.J. Smith (the author of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ books for which the TV series is based) chronicled the life of Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson), a recently orphaned teenager who moves to Chance Harbor, Washington to live with her grandmother and learns that she is a witch and part of a powerful coven of witches.
‘Ringer’ aired its final episode back at the end of April while ‘The Secret Circle’ came to an end this past Thursday.
For fans, these cancellations are heart-breaking, but both shows suffered from low ratings, giving the network reason to pull the plug.
