‘Ringer’ and ‘The Secret Circle’ Cancelled by The CW

'Ringer' and 'The Secret Circle' Cancelled by The CW

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.

    Seriously not renewing the Secret Circle??? That is my favorite show, next to Vampire Diaries, and I am 35 LOL… It is a great show and to leave it the way they did sucks. They need to at least bring it to an end of some sort. I am gonna cry!

    I can’t believe that you took off Ringer. 
    that was one of my new favorite shows.  They leave all those dumb shows on such as the Girl in room23 or some other foolish show.  They are really trying to dumb down America.

There are some other shows on the network that should have been cut, not this one!!! BIG MISTAKE CW…BIG MISTAKE!!!!! If you cancel Vampire Diaries we are gonna have some problems!

    I can’t believe they cancelled them both. They where my two new favorite shows. I am very unset on their decision on these two shows.

I used to watch nikita but itss sooo boring now and TSC was becoming soo enthralling! Couldn’t CW do what they did with hellcats and nikita last time????? SECRET CIRCLE definetly has a couple more great seasons left in it! Or if it is cancelled couldnt they just do one more episode cos the last one was a massive cliffhanger!  XX

    I loved the Ringer, definitely one of the most intriguing and original shows this season. I can’t believe that they cancelled it just as it was hitting it’s stride. Such a bummer.

    Cannot Believe Ringer was cancelled! The cast was awesome, and the story was so interesting! Why would they cancel such an awesome show?? Who decided to cancel it?? Certainly not the people who were loyal followers to the show! What a disappointment!
