The CW Cancels Ringer And The Secret Circle, Renews Nikita

Sarah Michelle Gellar in Ringer

It's time to add two more serial dramas to the pile of dead, as The CW has officially canceled the Sarah Michelle Gellar starring Ringer, and the supernatural teen drama The Secret Circle after one season each.

Ringer followed Gellar as Bridget, who assumes the life of her thought dead twin sister Siobhan after a series of convoluted circumstances. Critical reviews were decent, but the show's ratings hit new lows nearly every week. The cancellation is hardly a surprise, but that will do little to comfort the 2 million viewers who wanted answers to all the questions posed by the ending. The now series finale aired on April 17th, 2012.

The Secret Circle castA little more surprising is the axing of Secret Circle. The ratings were only a little better than Ringer's numbers, but the rumors had long been that the show would get a reprieve due to not bad demo totals. The show revolved around Cassie Blake, a recent arrival to the town of Chance Harbor, Washington, who finds out that she is a witch and part of local coven. And no, that's not a spoiler, as it happens in the pilot. The 22nd and final episode aired this past Thursday, May 10th.

Maggie Q in Nikita

 

 This next announcement makes the previous two decisions all the more puzzling. The Maggie Q starring action series Nikita drew both worse ratings and smaller demos than either of the above shows, yet has been saved and will come back for a third season. The network has offered no explanation for the pick up, and I can't begin to give you a logical reason. Maybe an exec just likes the show? Stranger things have happened in TV.

Will You miss Ringer or The Secret Circle? Should The CW have renewed Nikita?

The secret circles so addictive! It's just that the show was not advertised as much with then led to not many people knowing about it!

i can't believe you guys cancelled the secret circle and ringer... the most loved tv series by teen's and adults... out of most of the tv series that is on tv atm are pretty much doing the same scripts they've just added a few different endings. it's sad to see a show like ringer and secret circle disapear before giving it a really good go. because its different, out there and a good mystery... it get's you addicted. the books i love reading, but it's not the same. please bring them back we need something to watch.

REALLY DISAPPOINTED THAT THE SECRET CIRCLE IS NOT COMING BACK. YOU TAKE A MOVIE THAT NO ONE WATCHES AND BRING IT BACK FOR A 3RD SEASON YET CANCEL THE ONES THAT EVERYONE WATCHES. HOW SMART IS THAT.

Can't believe they cancelled TSC! I admit there was some characters I didn't like (I couldn't stand Diana), but I still really wanted to watch season 2...
