It's hard to believe that eight years have passed (count 'em, eight!) since Sarah Michelle Gellar kicked butt on Buffy the Vampire Slayer but she's making a triumphant return to TV this fall! Yesterday at Comic-Con, Sarah dished about her new CW show, Ringer, and how weird it is to not perform her own stunts.

As noted by Entertainment Weekly, Sarah explained. “When you have a show like Buffy that was so perfect, you’re not looking for a show to top it. You’re not looking for show that’s completely different." Then she also gave props to her fans. "We wouldn’t exist without fans. We wanted to come back and do a show that fans would love that would be different but still exciting.”

The  premise of Ringer revolves around twins. One is driven by redemption and the other who is driven by revenge. Considering The CW was formerly the WB, the same network for Buffy, Sarah has seen some familiar faces. “Many of the same people are there. My experience was so incredible there. There’s a little more freedom at the CW. We can take a few more risks.”

Although she mentions risks, there's one thing she's doing less of and that's kick butting her way on screen. “On Buffy, I could just go through a wall," she explained. "When we were doing this sequence (for Ringer), we had stunt doubles, and I was like, for what? Why do I have a stunt double? I was like, this is weird.”

Well, looks like she'll have to get used to it when Ringer premieres on September 13.
