Ringer Season 2: Renewal Update Remains Obscure

2 years ago, by

May 7, 2012


The CW’s Ringer which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar wrapped up its first season last April 17, 2012. The first season finale received a gloomy 0.6 ratio of 18-49 average adult rating. This number was a big contrast compared to the pilot episode which drew 2.84 million viewers, a 1.2 Adults 18-49 demo rating and a 1.6 in The CW’s target demo of Women 18-34. The ratings reached a three-year high for The CW in the Tuesday 9:00pm time slot.

With that big number of difference, can we still expect the CW to give a chance for Ringer season 2?
Here’s what we’ve rounded up exclusively for you:

If you’re a big supporter of this show, I’m going to try and be kind as much as I possibly can in breaking the news.

The Ringer which began with quite the good numbers on CW is now facing a “more likely to be cancelled than renewed” prediction from TV by the numbers on its April 10th ratings board. Now I know that that’s the last thing you ever want to hear as a fan — but to support these conjectures, I did further research.

My research concluded with a thought in my head that the series did not have the consistent and solid storyline. There had been quite a few written blogs that gave the show displeasing comments but only pointing to one major observation, and that is “the series had a lot of unfinished conflicts”. Media predict criticized the show leaving a statement of ” One of the most buzzed-about shows last summer, “Ringer” reunited Sarah Michelle Gellar and “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon in another serial thriller. But unfortunately no one could tell what the show was about”.

Hitflix also remarked that “Ringer didn’t live up to its end of the deal by gracefully finessing the finale into a series finale”.

I hope that based on that two quoted comments, you already deciphered what they mean. Like I said, the writers failed to create a material that might bring the show’s storyline into full circle.

Although much has been said, there’s not much left to do. The ratings don’t lie as well as the people who first believed on the series. However, no official announcements have been made yet about the cancellation. The CW has currently only renewed Vampire Diaries, 90210 and Supernatural.

There you have it, I hope I was gentle enough. For more updates, please feel free to check the site regularly. You’ll never know the possibilities. We welcome your thoughts too — just hit our comment box below!

    I loved this show!  It is only one of a few shows on this programming that I actually watched.  I did miss some of them during thier actual air time so I watched them thru the web site.  Either way I didn’t miss an episode!  I admit that at times I wished they would delv. more into the relationships and make more connections for the the characters, but it was the first year.  I think they could real do that with the 2nd. season with both sisters out in the open.  I pray this show doesn’t get the ax and is given some new life and a second chance, it has what it takes.

    There were a couple of episodes when Ringer almost lost me, then I became totally addicted to it. I love the show and will definitely reconsider my allegiance to CW if it gets cancelled.  Smart and sassy tv.

    I also love this show!!  the first season to me seemed to have a lot of back story to tell, so I can assume that now that  most of that has been covered, the second season would move a little quicker.  I’m really hoping it gets renewed!!  I also have never missed an episode and am anxiously awaiting bridget and siobban to have their show down!!

  • RINGER LOVER !!!

    I am only a teenager but i absolutely LOVE this show !!! It’s the best program ever !!! It can’t be cancelled. No matter what the ratings are ringer should NOT BE CANCELLED!  I love the story line and that it’s kinda complicated it’s great !!! PLEASE PLEASE SAVE RINGER !!!
    EVERY1 LOVES IT !!! 

  • Jen

    Please give us a second season!!!!,

  • Kim

    I think the CW needs to give this series another season. This show had a few weak and confusing moments but it has great potential and is unique. My husband and I watched it faithfully weekly and are keeping out fingers crossed for a renewal. Plus SMG and JW are awesome.  Please keep this show going.

    I love this show too – please don’t cancel it! Like someone posted below, I had to watch it through the TV station’s website…but that’s only because they moved it from 9pm til 11pm!

  • Kingc_97

    I love this show to and I am so made that they might get cancelled, honestly I think the first season ended so awesome and now we can’t even see what might happen on. The actors deserve this they are so perfect.

ABC? i just want to see what happens! I’ll buy the 2nd season they should just make it into a dvd then! lol

  • Upset ringer fan

    I loved this show and I never ever watch tv. I am highly disappointed. It was such an addicting show. I was so upset that I no longer have the CW channel but now that I know that ringer will not be returning I do not care. So upset and pissed off. Some shows are really terrible and are brought back, why this one was great and not renewed is beyond me.

  • Upset ringer fan

    Please bring ringer back!

  • burnsalot

    I have just downloaded and watched the entire season on demand and now im left hanging for the 2nd season. What happens to bridget and andrew? Does bridget find soibhan? Will siobhan tell andrew he is the twins dad? There are so many more story lines to work with. I really got addicted watch the boxset over 2 days and im wanting more.

  • Roberta

    I am 39 years and through my years watching TV. Ringer was great compared to some shows they need to cut off TV period. Give Ringer another shot once you get it together women love drama and it has alot of that in it. Get the show situated and settled and please put season 2 on the air you might get bigger results then season 1 since alot of viewers has got into it now and knows what the show is all about and the characters they like. I have seen many movies that is horrible at the theatre but still make some money more then they should have made on the movie. I know it is a gamble and a big chance but take it if you think you cross all your t’s and dotted all your i’s. How would you know if you don’t try it. So I hope that you all come to the conclusion to air season 2 on Ringer. I will look forward to it. Thanks for listening.

  • Jenny

    Ilove the show, please give these guys another chance the show’s really gud

  • Ringer fan

    The best show the CW ever played was Ringer. Give it a second chance.

  • Ringer Fan

    I love this show!!!!!!! Please CW give Ringer a season 2

  • Kristina

    This show was beyond addicting to the point that my boyfriend even watched it faithfully every episode. He and I are extremely upset that this show might be cancelled. I read in one of the comments that this show is at questioned to not be renewed for a second season but all these other horrible shows go on and on an on. Why can’t RINGER have that option. Let alone satisfy the fan and screw the viewer ratings. How cares is its “Popular”. Give it some time for those who haven’t discovered it yet, to actually discover it. Broadcast it more, instead of just through the CW or Facebook. Facebook doesn’t do a damn thing if they dont know about it and have “Liked” the fan pages. Come on, this I believe was better the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” which is saying alot because that was and is my favorite show. Please bring it back. No one cares about the viewer rates. Make the fans happy. If you look and actually read the comments below, there is not one negative thing about RINGER at all. So if you guys don’t bring it back, your are not only upsetting alot of fans and viewers, but leaving us in the dirt with an unfinished story line. I mean what was the point in the first place, airing the first season? It just doesn’t make any sense what so ever. Im very disappointed in this decision.

  • Tired of this Crap

    I watched the first series on Netflix. I could not stop watching it and found myself getting up in the middle of the night to watch the next episode. Very disappointed when I discovered that was it! I thought the writer’s did a great job based on the fact I can always out guess what’s coming next I was fooled several times but than I have no faith in movies critics. Every time they say we are going to love it I usually end up hating it. If you don’t bring it back for any other reason bring back because your going to follow through to finish the story. Many of us would appreciate that.

  • myscottsmann

    I’m upset, the writers took us into the past and now they won’t continue with taking us into the future! I really enjoyed this show and I, like others don’t watch just anything I’m pretty picky but the fact that the show was not predictable really made for some enjoyable TV viewing for a change. These days everything is so boring or obvious in the story lines. Would really like to see this show continue not many good shows left to watch these days.

  • Guest

    I just finished Ringer on Netflix. I LOVE IT!! It is the best show I’ve seen in a long time. I was so sad to find out that there won’t be anymore. THis show is seriously addicting. If it did return it would be one of the only shows I’d watch “live”. Ringer is so compelling. Please bring it back for another season!

  • mina
