Robin Williams was not only a costar to Sarah Michelle Gellar in the CBS comedy The Crazy Ones – he was the dad she “always dreamed of having.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, Gellar reflects on Williams, who died of suicide Monday at the age of 63, and the indelible mark he made on her and her family. Gellar played the straightlaced daughter Sydney to Williams’ eccentric ad man Simon in the CBS comedy that was cancelled in May after only one season.

“My life is a better place because I knew Robin Williams,” Gellar said. “To my children he was Uncle Robin, to everyone he worked with, he was the best boss anyone had ever known, and to me he was not just an inspiration but he was the Father I had always dreamed of having. There are not enough adjectives to describe the light he was, to anyone that ever had the pleasure to meet him. I will miss him everyday, but I know the memory of him will live on. And to his family, I thank them for letting us know him and seeing the joy they brought him. Us crazy ones love you.”

Gellar also went on to say, “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Several people who worked with Williams on The Crazy Ones told PEOPLE about how kind and affectionate the actor was to the cast and crew alike.

“He was so benevolent,” said one source close to the show. “He would appreciate everyone else’s work. He was the first one to say how incredible Sarah and [costar] Jimmy Wolk were. He had affection for everyone. He made sure everyone knew he was part of a team. Who does that? When you’re Robin you don’t have to do that.”

The Crazy Ones creator David E. Kelley says in a statement to PEOPLE of Williams: “The talent was legendary. But equally inspiring, perhaps more so, was his kindness and humanity. A gentle soul who touched us all. A very special man, and our hearts are broken.”

Before the comedy began its run on CBS in the fall of 2013, Gellar spoke with enthusiasm about working with a talented – and very understanding – man like Williams.

“You get lucky to work with a legendary comic and you get lucky if you get to work with an Academy Award winner and Juilliard-trained actor,” she told PEOPLE in July of 2013. “I get to work with a guy who is not only talented but so kind and he understands the dilemma that I find being caught between my home life and my professional life and he couldn’t be more caring. My joke is that I didn’t actually apply to be on the show. I applied for Robin to adopt me.”

The flood of TV show pickups and cancellations isn’t taking the weekend off. Earlier today, CBS massacred all of its remaining first-year comedies, pulling the plug on its charming Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar half-hour The Crazy Ones, the solidly performing Monday night mid-season sitcom Friends With Better Lives, and the TV adaptation of Bad Teacher. It also popped two of its first-year dramas, bidding farewell to Intelligence and Hostages. The past 24 hours also saw NBC putting a stake in Friday-night thriller Dracula and ABC privately confirming that it was leaving Suburgatory after three seasons, even though the comedy held on to something like 82 percent of its lead-in (The Middle). Also axed at ABC: Rebel Wilson’s Super Fun Night and Paul Lee’s The Neighbors. Not all of TV’s bubble shows got popped: ABC has ordered full seasons of Nashville and Last Man Standing, while CBS is keeping around a series many thought would be toast, The Mentalist. The Alphabet also majorly diversified its sitcom lineup, picking up a sitcom about an Asian family (Fresh Off the Boat, from Don’t Trust the Bitch creator Nahnatchka Khan) and one with a Latina lead (Cristela, starring standup comic Cristela Alonzo.)

NEW YORK, Oct. 18 (UPI) — U.S. television network CBS says it has given full-season orders to its three freshman comedies “The Crazy Ones,” “The Millers” and “Mom.””We’re proud of CBS’s leadership position in comedy and excited to build on it with the back nine pick-ups of these three new comedies,” Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement Friday.

“These series are creatively distinct, continue to improve each week and are led by strong show-runners, writing and production staffs, and feature amazingly talented casts.”

It looks like there is a chance of the 1990s fan-favorite TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” heading to big-screen in the future. E! Online pops a question about whether the Joss Whedon-created show will take the same route as “Veronica Mars”, which has been revived by Kickstarter backers, to Sarah Michelle Gellar. From her answer, there is a glimpse of hope for fans.

“Joss and I always talk about [a movie]. But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film. And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie,” she says. “And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time. If there was ever the right story, we would do it. At this point, the stake would be my walker and I would be hobbling in.”

Back in 2010, there was news of a “Buffy” reboot which was under development at Warner Bros. without Gellar or Whedon. Vanessa Hudgens was once linked to the said project, but her reps later slammed the report. Whedon, who is currently busy working on Marvel’s much-anticipated “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, was quite saddened by the news.

“I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don’t love the idea of my creation in other hands,” Whedon told Kristin Dos Santos of E! Online. “But I’m also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar is coming back to the small screen — in a comedy.

The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will co-headline CBS’ workplace comedy Crazy Ones, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The single-camera entry revolves around the dynamics between a father named Simon Roberts (Good Will Hunting Oscar winner Robin Williams) and his daughter and is set in the world of advertising.

Gellar will play Sydney Roberts, Simon’s daughter. She’s described as pretty, intense, driven, organized and burdened with being practical. Sydney is the creative director and life and soul of the Roberts and Roberts Advertising Agency at the center of the comedy. She wants to be her father but is too busy having to parent him.

Boston Legal‘s David E. Kelley will pen the 20th Television single-camera pilot and executive produce alongside Dean Lorey, Bill D’Elia, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum. Jason Winer (Modern Family, 1600 Penn) will direct the pilot.

Political Animals alum James Wolk also co-stars as Zach Cropper, a copywriter at the agency.

For Gellar, the role marks her second potential series-regular role in a half-hour comedy and comes a year after the CW axed her twin drama thriller Ringer. The actress previously shot an ill-fated comedy pilot for HBO in 2009 that failed to go to series.

In addition to her title role in Buffy, the actress has voiced multiple characters in American Dad, Robot Chicken and The Simpsons. On the feature side, her credits include The Grudge and the Scooby-Doo series. She’s repped by ICM Partners, Brillstein Entertainment and Morris Yorn.

The casting comes a month after the actress was developing a family comedy written by Men at Work‘s Shepard Boucher and exec produced by Apartment 23’s David Hemingson and Margaret Riley. The project failed to move forward.

Sorry for posting this late.

Sounds like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have a little fighter on their hands.

Since welcoming their second child together, a son, in September, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum, 35, and the actor, 36, have managed to keep their baby boy’s name a secret.

But now, the couple is ready to reveal the moniker they chose: Rocky James, Gellar’s rep tells Us Weekly. (Married for ten years, Gellar and Prinze are already parents to Charlotte Grace, 3.)

In addition to being the name of two of the most famous boxers of all time (Marciano and the fictional Balboa), Rocky is a name of English origin, meaning “stony” or “craggy.” Occasionally, it’s used as a nickname for the Italian “Rocco” (after the 14th-century saint.) James, meanwhile, is dad Prinze’s middle name.

Sarah Michelle Gellar ”had a baby boy last week in Los Angeles,” her rep tells PEOPLE.

She and husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. “are thrilled to announce” the news, the rep confirms to Access Hollywood, adding that ”mother and baby are doing great.”

The newborn joins the couple’s daughter Charlotte Grace at home.

Their 3-year-old, who was spotted out with a still-pregnant Gellar last Tuesday, “is very excited to be a big sister,” the rep adds.

“They are thrilled that Charlotte [has] a little brother,” a source close to the couple told PEOPLE in July.

“They love their little girl more than anything in the world and know that love will only multiply.”

Gellar, 35, and Prinze, 36, were married in September 2002.

At Monday’s Television Critics Association fall previews, The CW introduced a new slogan, “TV Now.” Fans of the youth network will have a bit of a wait, however, to get their fix since their fall season won’t kick off until later than usual, on Oct. 2 with the return of Hart of Dixie.

Check out what CW chief Mark Pedowitz had to say about the cancellation of Ringer, the possibility of a series based on the uber-violent film Battle Royale and holiday cheer with the Muppets:

More Sarah Michelle Gellar, please: Although Ringer didn’t perform as well as The CW expected in the ratings, online and on social media, the fans are still bugging the network to bring it back. Gellar is currently pregnant, but Pedowitz said, “When she’s ready, she’d love to come back at The CW as an actress or a producer.” He also noted the series might have done better with a shorter season, perhaps 13 to 16 episodes instead of the usual 22.
