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.

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!

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?

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… Read more »

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 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… Read more »

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.

Days Of Our Lives

Greg Vaughan Shares Farewell To DAYS & Scene Partner Arianne Zucker: “Never a Dull Moment, Laughing or Crying, She was the Party, Always with a smile!”

Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives had Eric Brady saying a sudden farewell to his loved ones before he departs Salem for Africa to help those in need.  That marks the on-screen departure of Daytime Emmy winner, Greg Vaughan.

As DAYS fans were aware, Greg wrapped his run months ago on the NBC daytime drama series, but since before the Covid-19 pandemic DAYS taped almost seven months ahead, Eric’s on-screen exit is airing this week.

Over the past two days, Vaughan took to his Instagram to share some sentiments, ‘thanks you’s’ and some photos of some of his favorite memories with his castmates expressing, “Seeing it’s the last week I’m airing on @nbcdays …I wanted to share some great captured memories this week with my incredible fans & castmates.”

The actor also posted a special photo album of pics with his longtime on-screen partner and love interest, Arianne Zucker (Nicole).  In that, he posted this message: “To my Ride or Die partner Ari!! Never a dull moment, laughing or crying, she was the party, always with a smile! Love ya #ERICOLE”

So, will you miss Ericole? Are you sad to see Greg exit Days on-screen? Share your thoughts via the comment section below … AND what were some of your favorite performances of Greg during his time on DAYS.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
