Before she was Buffy, Sarah Michelle Gellar played Kendall Hart, the daughter of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) on All My Children. With the soap opera going off the air in September, Gellar has made plans to return — but not as Kendall. In fact, she doesn’t exactly know what she’ll be doing at all, since Kendall has been played Alicia Minshew for the past several years.

“I can today officially confirm that I will be doing a guest-spot,” Gellar said Thursday during the fall TV preview session for her new CW series Ringer. “When I heard the show was canceled, I didn’t understand. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I called [the casting director] and said, ‘I want to do something.’ But I was very specific: I don’t want to be Kendall. That’s Alicia’s role, but I wanted to be a part of it. I have no idea what I’m going to be doing… I will be doing one day. I’m excited.”

But back to Ringer, the new noir mystery featuring Gellar in a dual role premiering this fall. The story follows recovering alcoholic Bridget, a key-witness in the murder of a fellow stripper, who escapes witness protection. She turns to her estranged twin sister, New York City socialite Siobhan, for help. But soon after their reunion, Siobhan appears to commit suicide, leading a desperate Bridget to take on her identity. The problem? Siobhan is actually alive and on the run from some unsavory people, leaving Bridget to sift her way through her sister’s cutthroat betrayals, infidelity and revenge.

It’s a tangled web the writers are attempting to weave, and when asked by reporters if they intended on providing answers on a routine basis — especially in a post-Lost era — they said yes. When the series was originally pitched, the executive producers had three seasons already mapped out. “We know where we’re going,” executive producer Nicole Snyder said. “Our goal is to sustain the ‘gasp’ moments and the tease that we established in the pilot… until the big punch at the end of the first season. And then we’ll start all over again.”

Gellar, too, feels the pre-emptive anxiety. “I’m a television watcher and I get frustrated with shows sometimes when they set up puzzles and they don’t give answers,” she said. “One of things that’s really important to all of us is that we will give answers to the questions. Yes, they bring up some more questions and more mysteries, but there will be answers and you will understand the motivations and circumstances of why this happened.”

Ringer will utilize flashbacks to unravel the mysteries of the series. “Right now, we’re sort of aiming for two to three flashbacks per episode, usually they’re all me,” Gellar said. “Sometimes we have a younger set of girls… The flashbacks are a good way to give answers to the story.”

Producers also cited Damages as a structural inspiration for the storytelling. “We wanted to play with time and perspective… that gives you a lot of latitude,” executive producer Eric Charmelo said. “Essentially, you’re able to tell the same story, but from a different perspective, and from a different perspective, it’s a different story.”

As for playing two completely different characters, Gellar said her challenge would be to create complicated, damaged women who audiences can sympathize with. “Their journeys, in both of their minds, are justified,” Gellar said. “With Siobhan, it’s funny to call her a bi—, but something happened to her that was tragic… For Bridget, she’s made a lot of mistakes, but ultimately she’s trying to redeem herself. I think everybody can understand what it’s like when you want to make better the mistakes you made in the past.”

Ringer premieres Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 9/8c on the CW.

Sarah Michelle Gellar has the best of both worlds.

Topping off her new gig as Bridget Cafferty in the new CW drama Ringer, the actress also has longtime hubby Freddie Prinze, Jr. and their 22-month-old daughter Charlotte Grace to come home to every night.

“[Freddie’s] great, he loves it,” Gellar, 34, told PEOPLE at the CBS TCA party in Beverly Hills on Wednesday of her man supporting her latest career move. “He’s perfectly happy to stay at home and put the baby to bed.”

It’s been almost a decade since Gellar starred on a TV show, and the actress says she “loves” being back in the saddle.

“I didn’t realize how much I miss the atmosphere until I started back,” Gellar — who once played iconic Buffy Summers on Buffy the Vampire Slayer – explains.

“There’s something about television … seeing the same people everyday, looking forward to the scripts — I’m loving it more than I thought I was going to.”

But career aside, Gellar says nothing will come between her and being an active and present mom.

“I want to be able to go home at night and see my daughter,” she explains. “I want to be there for her first day of school and her school recital. Television offers me that — they’re amazing at working around schedules. All of the big milestones I’m there for.”

Soap Opera Digest can report exclusively that yes, Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall) will appear on ALL MY CHILDREN before its September 23 broadcast finale. “I have no idea what I’m doing or who I’m playing,” she says. “I told them I don’t want to be Kendall; that’s Alicia’s [Minshew] role now. She has made that beyond her own. She’s amazing. I just wanted to be a part of it. I said I would be a patron in a bar, I don’t care. I can come down from the attic with Bobby Martin; I can be his ski bunny wife.”

The actress is currently filming RINGER for The CW, in which she stars as twins. There’s an AMC connection there, too — Justin Bruening (Jamie), who is also returning to AMC, is taping RINGER with Gellar now. “He’s great,” she says. “I think the day I’m doing [AMC], Justin will be there, too.”

For more from the actress, see an upcoming issue of Digest.

Sarah Michelle Gellar chatted with at Comic-Con 2011, held earlier in the month in San Diego, Calif.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actress had to share about her new TV show, Ringer:

JJ: What do you think will surprise people the most with Ringer?
SMG: Hopefully the storylines, hopefully the twists and turns, we’ll keep them on their toes! Just when you think you know where it’s going, it diverts into a totally different area.

JJ: You are known for such an iconic role – how does that change your performance when you are playing a new character? How do you take on that challenge?
SMG: I think that none of us would be here without the fans, and I know specifically for my show, we were a midseason replacement on the WB based on a failed movie. I mean, let’s be honest, our odds weren’t very good. It was the fans fighting for us, and talking about us and keeping us present that made people tune into the show and those are the people that you want to honor – those are the TV fans. It’s why you do it. I don’t make a television show for awards, you make it so that people will enjoy watching it. To me, you honor that in what you choose, I think you pick characters, not in a similar vain but that do appeal to the same audience. I say it’s sort of a cross between Buffy and Cruel Intentions, a good combo.

JJ: Talk to us about taking on two roles for Ringer.
SMG: Everyone has their own process. To me acting is acting – I pretend to be whomever, it’s just like the ultimate dress up.

JJ: What’s been your favorite part of the show?
SMG: My favorite part so far has just been being with these people and having sort of an adult experience on set where we all look forward to being together and we go home. We all talk about our children and it’s the next part of life for me.

JJ: What is on your bucket list?
SMG: Bucket list? I would like to have a really long vacation.

JJ: You did! And now you’re back!
SMG: Ohh [laughs] yeah, oh right, oops. I want to go to the Maldives! That’s not the answer you wanted, I know that, but that’s really what I would like. I would like to go to the Seychelles and the Maldives. That’s on my bucket list [laughs].
