RINGER Season Finale Preview: But, will the series get a renewal or get canned?

It’s decision time for many of the television networks deciding which shows will get picked-up for the fall season and one show on the bubble, according to TV Line is the Sarah Michelle Gellar sudsy drama series, Ringer.  During the course of this season, many soap stars have stopped by to guest-star on the suspense drama including Y&R’s Billy Miller (Billy) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).

This coming Tuesday, April 17th at 9/8C on The CW is the season finale and viewer will  learn that twin, Siobhan, will intercepts the results of her paternity test before Henry (Kris Polaha) can have a look, and the dramatic conclusion intensifies.

In the should Ringer get a renewal or not issue, TV Line assessed the situation stating: “The series is ripe with potential but, not unlike the first seasons of several series — ahem, Community, Parks and Recreation – it needs a bit more time to work out the kinks and grow into itself. That said, when Ringer is good, it can be really good. First of all, it’s still got what initially drew us all in — Sarah Michelle Gellar times two. And while it’s clearly not the second coming of Buffy (nor was it supposed to be), it’s nice to have her back on our TVs each week. Add to that the fact that the freshman drama mastered the art of the love-to-hate villain (Siobhan and Catherine, to name two), aced the jaw-dropping death of a main character (RIP, Gemma) and nurtured an unconventional yet very sweet romance (between Bridget and Andrew), and you’ve got the makings of a fun, sudsy show.”

TV Line’s reason for cutting the show:  “No matter how it has tried (and try it has), Ringer has never quite lived up to the expectations set in its strong debut episode (boat scene excepted). The premise was a winning one — estranged twins reunite, only to have one “die” and the other assume her sister’s identity — but that all played out by pilot’s end. Since then, the plot has become increasingly convoluted. There’s just too much “shock for shocks’ sake” and not enough earned drama. And while the cast of the sudser is all-around solid, it’s way too big, leaving little to do for more than a few criminally underused players, Nestor Carbonell and Kris Polaha included.”

Watch the preview of the final episode below.  And let us know, do you want the Gellar series to stay on the air? Yes? Or, No?

Yes, I WANT Sara Michelle Gellar’s series to stay on the air! It’s one of the best shows on television. There maybe a lot going on in one episode but it keeps me guessing and on the edge of my seat. Most shows I can figure what’s going to happen before it happens they are too predictable, Ringer is the exact opposite. The CW cancelled Veronica Mars way too soon and if they do it again with Ringer, there is no need to watch anything else on that network. All the good shows seem to get cancelled too soon.

Ringer is kind of cheesy but in the most delicious way. I’d love to see a second season.

Oh I totally agree. I was just saying that earlier today. Ringer and Revenge are two of my favorite shows on television. I got my season 2 of Revenge, I want one for Ringer as well.

I have a feeling it’ll get a renewal; ratings have been going up strong since the return. And it’s an amazing series, the best The CW has. It’s everything soap operas should be right now. I love it.

I really like ‘Ringer.’ But I have felt one disadvantage is it’s time slot. In my market it’s only on at 10pm on Friday nights, with no reruns during the week. I’m not home every Friday night, and currently I don’t record. Being a complicated story you don’t want to miss one.

It’s been one of the best “suspence” shows in a while where it leaves the audience going WTF at some points and anxiously waiting for the next epi – I hope everyone’s smart and the show stays!

Emily

It has to go so Hart of Dixie has a chance of renewal. I tried to get into it, but after 6-7 episodes I stopped watching. Too much going on to follow it all. I like a deep story but this was just too much. Still love SMG, bring Buffy back and I’ll watch 😉

I would love for them to get a second season and since they are on the cw it is a big possiblity i just think it needs to find its following but for the life of me i can’t figure out where this show will go in season two. The finale seem to tie up all the story lines so what comes next?

I hope the show stays on. It keeps you in suspense.
Sarah Michelle Gellar is a very good actress.

I just hope it does not get cancelled. Its worth keeping it on.

I am dying for there to be a SEASON 2… One of the best shows on TV

Ringer in my opinion is an EXCELLENT show.. It was full of suspense and twits& turns. I feel the CW broadcast would lose alot of fans first of the cliffhanger in the season finale due to the speculations of cancelation. Second that there are even speculations of cancelations and third if it does get canceled. Ringer was by far one of the great shows to air on CW this year (Secret Circle as well), besides all the previous renews. I am hoping for the return/renewal of Ringer. It was truly an AMAZING show. Stock full of a great story line and actors!

Amy

I believe Ringer is an awesome show. I hope it will come back for a second season. Sarah Michelle Gellar did a great job playing two characters. It was full of suspense and the story line to the show was well-written.

I would very much like to see the series renewed, but I suspect that it will not be. I love the depth of the plot / subplots but it seems that the majority of audiences do not like to think while watching TV. Advertisers want to hit the largest numbers possible thus people who do have intelligence and enjoy deeper stories suffer.

I love ringer it should stay on. Sarak MIchelle Geller is a great actress. You need to help the show.

I LOVE this show! It’s the only show I actually look forward to. Unfortunately, I always have to catch up on it online or on SOD…If they cancel this I will be crushed

Brandy

I LOVED THIS SHOW!!! My husband and I waited forever for the season to start and we enjoyed watching Sarah Michelle Gellar and the drama each week. The one thing I did not understand was why the producers would air the show during the same time as Dancing with the Stars….I would always Ringer and then I would dvr DWTS and watch that at a later time. It was a bad time slot. If they had the show on Wednesday nights it would have gotten more stable and consistent viewers. I so hope that they will bring the show back for a second season!!! I really hope so. Ringer is my favorite show!

Krista

I really like the show a lot. It was one of the only cable tv shows that I enjoyed watching. I hope it comes back. I can’t understand why it is not getting good ratings. Maybe people do not like it because it is not reality tv. Maybe if they had snookie as a main character more people would watch.

Emma

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales.
