TV show description:      
A former exotic dancer, Bridget Kelly (Sarah Michelle Gellar) has been sober for six months and is starting to turn her life around. That plan gets messed up when she becomes the sole witness to a professional hit. Despite the assurances of her FBI protector, Agent Victor Machado (Nestor Carbonell), Bridget knows that her life is still in great danger. She flees to New York City and doesn’t tell a soul, not even her Narcotics Anonymous sponsor, Malcolm Ward (Mike Colter).

Once in the Big Apple, Bridget reunites with her estranged twin, Siobhan Martin (also Sarah Michelle Gellar). She’s wealthy, pampered, and married to the strikingly handsome Andrew Martin (Ioan Gruffudd), a self-made millionaire who has a teenage daughter named Juliet (Zoey Deutch). Siobhan lives what appears to be a fairy tale life -– a life where no one even knows that Bridget exists.

The sisters seem to be mending their troubled relationship, until Siobhan suddenly disappears overboard while on a boat trip. Still worried for her own safety, Bridget makes the split decision to take on her sister’s identity. It turns out however that Siobhan’s life isn’t as idyllic as it first appeared. Bridget discovers shocking secrets, not only about her sister and her marriage, but also about Siobhan’s best friend Gemma (Tara Summers) and her writer husband, Henry Butler (Kristoffer Polaha).

When someone tries to kill Bridget in her sister’s penthouse, she realizes that she’s not any safer posing as Siobhan than she was living as herself.

Series Finale:     
Episode 22 — I’m the Good Twin
As the vow renewal ceremony gets closer, Bridget realizes she first needs to tell Andrew the truth about who she really is. Meanwhile, just as Bodaway Macawi (guest star Zahn McClarnon) starts to close in on Bridget, Agent Machado is forced off the case and Henry decides whether he should tell Bridget the truth about Siobhan.
First aired: April 17, 2012.

    This is such a good show. SMG finally had a show worthy of her talent. I would really like to see a second and third season. Also the only place you can get a DVD is from Australia. I really don’t understand why the network would not let the show find its audience.

    I just finished watching the first and only season of Ringer. Just as the others I am so by the fact they cancelled a show leaving it hanging. Unfair to those who are fans and viewers who watch the network. I am irritated by the fact they pulled the plug. I am not sure is CW formerly known as WB? anyways I remember when the Roswell TVs show was going to be pulled but by many fans who were deeply upset wrote letters to the network with Tabasco bottles, it was what the main characters ate with everything. The network gave Roswell a chance to give the their fans a series finale. How come all the shows I love end before it’s time. Viewers nowadays Don’t know ugood acting, writing and complexity of complex characters. Who were multidimensional not 1 dimensional people. The network just didn’t find the right slot. DANG IT! I WANT MY RINGER BACK!!

    Sooo deeply disappointed in CW. Even one last 2 hour Wrap-Up would have helped with closure….will never watch CW again and will encourage everyone I know to stop as well. The Executives there should be fired!
    Ringer was a great show! The story-line took some time to build but it definitely kept viewers and my friends on the edge of our seats. A 1000 times better than watching shows like “Lost”….Goodbye CW

    I am so upset that the CW cancelled Ringer! Gossip Girl ended as well, so now I am only left with The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, as long as they’re not cancelled also. I don’t understand why Ringer was cancelled due to the fact that it had a good plot and suspenseful storyline going for it. It was a really good show. At least bring it back to have a series finale that puts the show to an end. I can’t understand why this show is being cancelled but dumb shows like 90210 are still airing…I already watched plenty of 90210 in the 90’s the first time around…at least Ringer was fresh and new with amazing acting talent. I dont get it…CW makes no sense anymore…if my other 2 shows are cancelled then I’ll have no reason to watch the network any longer…it will be banned in our household.

    BRING RINGER BACK OR AT LEAST END IT WITH WITH US KNOWING WHAT HAPPENED. I HATE IT WHEN A STATION DOES THIS. DON’T GET ME WRONG, I LOVE SCARY STORIES BUT THIS WAS ALSO GOOD, ESPECIALLY SMGELLER. I LOVE HER. AND YES , I HOPE SOMEONE TAKES UP WHERE THE SCI-FI CHANNEL LEFT OFF BECAUSE WHEN THEY BROADCAST FRIDAY NIGHT SLAMDOWNS?? WRESTLING, YOU KNOW SOMETHINGS WRONG!

  6. V says

    Great show, don’t understand why Cw cancelled this??? Now the viewers are left with no ending. At least bring it back another season to give us answers to all the questions!!!

  7. Linda says

    I agree with everyone else, I now have nothing else to watch on CW, so they just lost another viewer. If they come out with something new, I won’t even start watching it because they will probably cancel that…so long CW.

  8. cara says

    pathetic very angry they have cancelled Ringer.
    been waiting for SMG to come back to the screen after 8 years away and after buffy.
    loved the show been waiting for the twins to finally confront one another
    but us fans will never get to see that disappointed is not the word for it.
    I VOTE BRING BACK RINGER

  9. Tabatha says

    So mad this was cancelled I’ve been looking so forward to it returning. I only watch 2 how’s on the CW ringer and the secret circle. What a shame to cancel the only shows on the network worth watching.

  10. Anonymous says

    Very upset this was cancelled only shows on CW I will watch was this and secret circle. Come on CW bring em back

  11. Shan says

    I agree. I was loving the Ringer, the storyline and everything. I don’t get how they come up with this every year cancelling shows that appear to be good and replace them with whole bunch of SyFy shows. Is the CW becoming the next SyFy channel?!??!

  12. says

    An intelligent shw with good acting, writing, and a story line that kept viewers coming back for more. Just checked to see when the next season comes on and I see it’s cancelled. Whoever is making these decisions at CW blew it. You can’t base your ENTIRE network on 20-something vampires, witches, werewolves or whatevers you DO need a little substance programming here & there…….
