Sarah Michelle Gellar is heading back on the small screen! While Buffy fans mourn the loss of Joss Whedon to the upcoming Buffy movie, they can rejoice that the real Buffy Summers (sorry, Kristy Swanson) is hopefully turning to TV.
The show, to air on CBS, is titled Ringer and it’s about a young woman that has the mob after her. Hoping to elude them, she pretends to be her (very wealthy) twin sis! However, that sister has problems of her own, because there’s a bounty on her.
We’ve seen Sarah Michelle Gellar work as “twins” before on TV when she played Buffy and the BuffyBot.
In 2009, TV fans thought they might see SMG on HBO with the show The Wonderful Maladay’s, but that was not picked up to air.
Every season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is available on Netflix. You can also check out the SMG movies Suburban Girl, The Return, and Veronika Decides to Die. (All are recommended by us.)
