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.
