Tonight the Cult of Buffy can rejoice as Sarah Michelle Gellar makes her long-awaited return to TV. In neo-noir saga Ringer, Gellar plays both Bridget, an ex-stripper hiding from an FBI agent (Nestor Carbonell) and a mobster (Zahn McClarnon), and her wealthy identical twin Siobhan, whom she believes to be dead. (She’s not.) Gellar, who was last seen on the small screen in the 2003 finale of cult megahit Buffy the Vampire Slayer, told EW in our cover story, ”Ringer is the perfect balance of what audiences want to see me do. It’s Cruel Intentions-meets-Buffy.” Count us in!

So what do you think PopWatchers? How are you preparing for Gellar’s TV return? Has your interest been sufficiently piqued by the sexy ads? Do you think Ringer has any chance of measuring up to Buffy? Will the addition of Veronica Mars’ Logan and Lost‘s Carbonell bring in some more cult cred? Sound off below.

    I’m first n in!,

  • Aja Wright

    I am watching it, just because I love love love Sarah… Im super amped…

  • Nic

    I love me some SMG but the premise of this show just sounds stupid, sorry count me out.

    • polo

      The premise sounded awful but the previews changed my mind. I’m really excited to see SMG back on TV!

  • Algren

    I hope Sarah Michelle Gellar does more mainstream movies from now on. She is an underrated actress and should have joined the A-list years ago. So, I hope she does more mainstream movies, tries to reach her full potential as an actress and tries to win an Oscar.

    I’m watching it! I’ve been planning a Ringer pizza and wine night for weeks now! lol big SMG fan here! I’ll tune in and give the show a shot. It sounds like a hit-or-miss show though.

  • Dana

    The premises of shows often sound kinda stupid, it’s the execution that counts. Will be watching!

  • Haley

    I’ll be happy when it airs because the promos that repeat the name “Siobhan” ad nauseam are wearing thin in my household. They are on *every* channel. Even my 4-year old says “Oh, God, it’s Siobhan” whenever one comes on.

    • Alpert

      I haven’t even seen a promo on TV.

      • Haley

        Really?! Around here (Baton Rouge) they’re on all the time. The promos feature Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. I’m actually watching the show now because my little boy spotted it while I was channel surfing and flipped out (excitedly) when he saw Shioban. ; + )

  • HD

    So excited, she’s so underrated!

  • Karl

    SOOO Excited!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Coyote

    Can’t say anything positive about the clip they’re showing on Regis and Fallon, but I’ll be there for Logan.

  • Brett

    I don’t think she’s good enough as an actress to overcome what sounds like one of the dumbest scripts in television history (and that’s saying a lot, because there have been a LOT of dum scripts….)

  • An Average Sized Mustache

    I don’t even think jumping from a crane is going to save this show.

  • BuffyJunkie

    If another actress was cast I prob wouldn’t have an interest in the show. However, I’ll watch anything with SMG, and I just have to trust that she wouldn’t take her comeback to television lightly. The idea of a DePalma-esque noir thriller on TV is awesome so here’s hoping it delivers. And even if it doesn’t, I’ll still be tuning in just to watch Sarah. Oh, and the inclusion of Jason Dohring to the cast makes me very very happy.

  • pastafarian

    Why is Nicole Richie in this?

  • Big D

    Very psyched! I have a massive crush on SMG!
