Sarah Michelle Gellar, The CWThe CW's fall schedule will officially be filled with familiar faces.

The network has picked up three new series, 'The Secret Circle,' 'Hart of Dixie' and 'The Ringer,' all starring leading ladies we've seen on network TV before.

'The Ringer' marks Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to the small screen
in a dual role as a rich woman running from the mob and her troubled twin sister. The actress formerly known as Buffy the Vampire Slayer appeared on The WB from 1997 to 2001 and UPN from 2001 to 2003, coincidentally those two networks merged to become The CW in 2006. The new pilot was originally commissioned by CBS, but in an interesting twist ended up getting picked up by its sister network.

Britt Robertson on 'Life Unexpected'When a network declines to pick up the second half of a television season, it's usually a sign that the show won't return for another year. Most people would probably throw in the towel -- but not the cast and crew of 'Life Unexpected.'

When star Britt Robertson spoke with TV Squad a couple of weeks ago, she said the bad news only made her work harder. "It's so easy to be like 'Alright, let's close up the shop,'" she said. "But there are so many people who love the show and are having such a great time on it that it's just made us fight harder to show The CW what they're missing out on."

In the final four episodes of season 2, Robertson's character, Lux, will continue her illicit relationship with her English teacher ("It's so wrong, but so good!" Robertson said, and it will unfold into "some pretty big situations.") and deal with the abusive foster family she lived with during middle school ("There are some pretty big storylines involving that.").

Britt Robertson Talks 'Avalon High,' King Arthur and Working for Disney

Britt Robertson in 'Avalon High'Playing the lead in Disney Channel's newest movie, 'Avalon High,' was like a mini vacation for Britt Robertson. Compared to her day job -- playing a foster child who reunites with her birth parents after 16 years in the system on The CW's 'Life Unexpected' -- the modern-day take on the Camelot legend was a whole lot more lighthearted, to say the least.

"['Avalon High'] was really very different," Robertson told TV Squad yesterday. "I've never done anything for Disney before. The genre in general is not something I'm typically pinned for. It's sort of like a realistic fantasy type movie -- it's a little more action-packed than I'm used to; it's a little more fun and playful. I started shooting after season 1 [of 'Life Unexpected'], so it was nice to be able to do something fun after that."

In the movie, which premieres tonight at 8PM ET on the Disney Channel, Robertson stars as a teenage girl who discovers that her new classmates at Avalon High are reincarnated versions of King Arthur and his court. She has to unravel the mystery of why, exactly, this is happening and stop Mordred, the traitor who killed Arthur (according to legend, that is), from doing it again.
