The 'Ringer' new series will launch on the CW on September 13, and it represents Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to television. After 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', Gellar took a break from TV series but recently said she realized how much she missed this type of work when she got this new role in 'Ringer'.

Sarah Michelle Gellar says that her decision of going back to roles in TV series was influenced by two factors. One of them is aknowledging that women have more opportunities in this career now: 'all the amazing roles for women today are being wrtitten in television'. The other factor was decisive, as Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr now have a 2-year old child and she wanted to land a job that would allow her to go home at night and spend time with her family.

Gellar also says that this role is very different from the one she had in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and she is thrilled at the idea of trying something new and challenging. 'I'm not trying to save the world this time. My characters are just trying to save themselves. But I do get to point a gun a lot, which is cool, because Buffy never had a gun', she said.

The roles she is playing in 'Ringer' are those of twin sisters with dark secrets and lethal relationships, and everything goes for the worst when one of them goes missing. The series centers around mystery and, according to CW officials, it is more mature than other similar projects that have as target women between the ages of 18 and 34.
