Ringer and The Secret Circle AXED

The CW has axed Ringer and supernatural drama The Secret Circle.

The cancellation of Sarah Michelle Gellar drama Ringer will have come as no surprise to many. While Ringer debuting on The CW well its ratings didn’t hold and they soon became low – the kind of low which means it was a dead cert for cancellation. The only possible get out clause for Ringer would have been “strong international sales” but Maggie Q drama Nikita used that ‘Get out of jail free card’ to get itself a third season.

However, a little more surprising is The CW’s decision to axe supernatural drama The Secret Circle. The witchy drama was paired with The Vampire Diaries on Thursday evenings as they are both based on novels by L.J Smith and adapted for television by Kevin Williamson. The Secret Circle’s ratings were consistent throughout the series although in the past few weeks they did drop. Never-the-less it was widely seen as a good contender for renewal especially over Nikita and Hart of Dixie, The CW had over ideas though.

The broadcaster picked up five shows to series yesterday meaning it did have to clear room in its schedules and unfortunately for The Secret Circle it was a victim of that.

  1. THE SECRET CIRCLE HAD A PRETTY LARGE FOLLOWING NOW IF ANOTHER NETWORK PICKS IT UP THE CW WILL REGRET IT BECAUSE IT WILL BE A BIGGER HIT THEN “FART OF DIXIE”

  2. I love this show, and cannot believe Secret Circle has been cancelled. CW channel has messed around with this show by stopping, and starting it in the schedules, which was the main reason for lowering the amount of people watching the last few episodes. This appears to be the way in the states, but I do not understand the logic. I do hope another station does the right thing, and picks it up for a second season, just to show CW how stupid they have been by letting it get away.
    Magic Rules!

  3. What a joke the other shows are rubbish, i only watch The vampire diaries and the secret circle, why renew rubbish like gossip girl and hart of dixie never watched them and never will.. bad call i say renew The secret circle please

  4. I used to watch the Gossip Girl but it ran it course a LONG time ago and I stopped watching 2 seasons ago. I love the Secret Circle and I guess I will have to be turning to a different network when its time slot is filled with something else. I will do it on principle alone. I will refuse to watch it replacement no matter what they put there! Sometimes you just have to stand your ground!

  5. You know what? I think we should have a campaign. I loved TSC. It was so amazing. I don’t know WTF is this. CW SUCKS! WE WANT TSC BACK!!!!!!!!!! :@
