    Haha, Michael Ausiello can never get anything right.

    Sucks for the fans of TSC though, they were just celebrating on IMDB moments ago…

  • Nick

    Bye Ringer :(

  • The Yipster

    Wow. I thought of all CW rookie shows, the Secret Circle had the best chance for renewal. I didn’t watch the show, but based on the ratings, I thought it had a good chance. I guess not. That’s too bad.

  • Phill

    noooooooooooooooo TSC!!!!!!!! SHOCKKKK

  • Luke

    But… but.. TSC ended on a huge cliffhanger… ugh stupid writers!!!!!!!!!!!

  • F.R.

    In addition to Futon critic, EW also reports a renewal:


    The CW Renews Secret Circle
    Season two will focus on what it means for the circle to be unbound after spending almost the entire first season bound together.

    And yet I still don’t know if it’s cancelled or renwed.

    TVLine is wrong – all sources now say renewed besides tvline. TSC coming back!

  • Kris

    Sad to see Ringer go, but I was expecting it. Sarah Michelle Gellar is pregnant again so maybe it was for the best. It would have been hard to hide it while playing two characters.

  • Ray

    Is SC renewed or cancelled? So many conflicting reports!!!

  • dazzag

    im confused is secret circle renewed or not everyone is saying diffrent things

  • rob60990

  • Liam

    @Robert or Bill

  • zerg

  • WB

    So The CW has cancelled RINGER and THE SECRET CIRCLE!

  • Nazel

    Now you can’t tell me that retention has nothing to do with The Secret Cercle being cancelled and HOD being renewed ..

  • bluelp85

    Of the three rookies I did enjoy HoD the most.

  • TVsBucketofBolt

    Wow, KPO and B_Rob thrown under the cancellation bus. Wow!
