More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And this one was headed this way for a long time, and it may even be a relief for everybody that CW cancels Ringer. After all, Sarah Michelle Gellar got pregnant, and given the premise, there was no way of adding it to the plotline, among other reasons, like being a similar plot to another show that´s working better in the ratings, and that the show had already been passed by CBS. We could even say this is the second cancellation of Ringer.
Bridget Kelly (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is a recovering drug addict and stripper in Wyoming. She is under the protection of FBI Agent Victor Machado (Nestor Carbonell), having agreed to testify against her employer, local crime boss Bodaway Macawi (Zahn McClarnon), whom she witnessed commit murder. Fearing that Macawi, who has already murdered several witnesses linking him to previous crimes, will also kill her, Bridget flees to New York to meet her estranged twin sister Siobhan (also played by Gellar).
Soon after arriving in New York, Siobhan, who had kept her sister’s existence secret from her family, appears to commit suicide by jumping into the ocean. Bridget then assumes Siobhan’s identity and tries to fit in among Siobhan’s wealthy social circle, including Siobhan’s husband Andrew (Ioan Gruffud), stepdaughter Juliet (Zoey Deutch), best friend Gemma (Tara Summers), and Gemma’s husband Henry (Kristoffer Polaha) with whom Siobhan had been having an affair. The only one who knows that Bridget is passing as Siobhan is Bridget’s Narcotics Anonymous sponsor Malcolm (Mike Colter). Bridget’s life becomes more complicated as she discovers that her sister was hiding secrets of her own and that someone is trying to kill Siobhan as well.
