Sarah Michelle Gellar Returns to TV

Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, rejoice! Your girl Sarah Michelle Gellar is back on television after taking a hiatus to spend time being a mommy.

"Buffy was all-encompassing; it was my life and you really need to take a break from that. But then I realized I missed the familial atmosphere," Gellar explained to Extra, about why she's doing a TV show again. "And now having a small child, I have the best of both worlds."

In 2009, Gellar and hubby Freddie Prinze, Jr. welcomed daughter Charlotte Grace.

Now, the 34-year-old actress returns in a new CW drama called Ringer, in which she plays a young woman on the run from the mob. But the new series puts plenty on Gellar's plate, as she's doing double-duty as the main character -- and her twin sister!

So, how is she handling the new challenges of being a working mother? Gellar says she's mastered the art of multi-tasking.

"Don't forget, I'm playing two characters and I'm the executive producer!" she says. "You men think if we are texting on our BlackBerrys, we can't hear you. But we can."
