Sarah Michelle Gellar is back in fighting form this fall on The CW, but she’s swapping her trademark stake for a packed pistol! Sarah gave‘s sister site TVLine the scoop about her new show Ringer on July 21 at San Diego Comic-Con, reaffirming what we already knew — this show is going to be hot!

“I got a gun [on the show] and Buffy never got to shoot a gun,” she said. “But yesterday I had a skill saw, and that thing I did not like. I never want to use that thing again. Ever.”

Ringer tells the story of twin sisters Siobhan and Bridget — both played by our girl SMG — and while they do switch places from time to time, trust us, it’s nothing like The Parent Trap. Bridget is a fugitive, and when Siobhan suddenly goes missing, Bridget steals her identity in order to hide out. Of course, things get complicated when Bridget learns that Siobhan’s life is just as messed up as her own… and things get even crazier when she finds out Siobhan is still alive!

And if you thought Nina Dobrev had it rough playing two characters on The Vampire Diaries, Sarah says she basically plays five! “There’s Bridget and Siobhan in the present; Bridget and Siobhan in the past; and ‘Siobette,'” which TVLine explains as whenever one twin is pretending to be the other.

Watch the brand-new trailer for Ringer, which just debuted at Comic-Con, and tell us: Will YOU be tuning in for SMG’s epic return to TV this fall?
