Good news for Ringer fans today. The CW has picked up the freshman drama for the full season, making it the first new series on the network to get a 'back 9' order. Other newcomers The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie have yet to receive any news on their futures. While the former is considered a lock to get picked up, the latter could go either way.

Across all networks, new shows with female leads are clearly in favor this year. Joining Ringer, which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, in getting picked up are New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, and Whitney. Prime Suspect, while not getting an outright full season, did receive an order for more scripts earlier today.
