TV show description:
A science fiction Romeo and Juliet television series, this show revolves around the romance between a human girl and an alien boy when he and six others of his kind are integrated into a suburban high school.

When Emery Whitehill (Aimee Teegarden) was six-years-old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town. Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn’t matter — a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians.

In the midst of the conflict, Roman (Matt Lanter), a six-year-old Atrian boy, found his way to a shed behind Emery’s house. There, she protected him from harm, brought him food, gave him comfort – and friendship. In their brief time together, Emery and Roman forged a deep bond, but the authorities wasted no time in tracking Roman down and capturing him in a violent confrontation. Emery grew up believing that Roman had been killed that day.

Some 10 years later, the Atrians have been acclimated to life on Earth, however they’re interned in a heavily-guarded camp (the Sector) to keep them separate from humans. Now, for the first time, a group of Atrian teens will enroll in a suburban human high school, with the goal of testing the feasibility of human/alien integration. The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavor fraught with suspicion and fear.

In the mayhem of the first day, Emery is amazed to learn that Roman was not killed by the authorities and is, in fact, one of the Atrian students. Their childhood bond is quickly rekindled. In a school and a society that distrusts everything about the Atrians, Emery and Roman have found each other again. However, their relationship is threatened by the small-mindedness of their respective communities and the political agendas of people in power.

While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous. Then, a violent encounter between Roman’s father and Emery’s father occurs in the Sector. Can Roman and Emery’s love survive? Can there be true peace between humans and Atrians?

Series Finale

Episode #13 — “Passion Lends Them Power”
After Roman is badly hurt, Emery turns to an unexpected ally for help. Meanwhile, Grayson , Drake , Sophia, and Lukas race to find the stolen Suvek before the Trags can activate it. However, Vega (guest star Merle Dandridge) is a step ahead of them and sets off the Suvek in the middle of a Marti Gras parade. Teri is shocked when she overhears Vega ordering the death of her friends. Gloria discovers Taylor’s secret and shares one of her own.
First aired: May 12, 2014.

I really enjoyed the show. It also left us hanging. So we will never know how it all played out. Its always sad when they do that to us, the ones who watch a show faithfully. We have no say on when they cancel shows, or when they leave shows on. What I have noticed is the shows that stay on are the ones I never watch. Reality shows are the ones they keep and keep making more of them, and I HATE them. I have no interest in watching real life people doing their real life crap. TV shows are meant to entertain us by taking us to a world that is make believe. Real life can be watched on the news at news time. The cancellation of this show is extremely sad, to bad TV execs. only see numbers and dollar signs.

So mad. All my favorite shows get cancelled yet they keep supernatural on the air when there’s not even any good storylines left to keep telling. Bring back starcrossed and the tomorrow people

I really liked it a lot too. For me Drake and Taylor were the super couple more than Emery and Roman. I thought this was a hit. They keep boring shows like Beauty and the Beast? There are a few shows that just could not keep me interested. I don’t get ow they score but oh well.

Got into the show from 1st episode. But they keep canceling good shows and not giving them time to really get going. Favorites they have cancelled of mine – Witches of East End, Dracula, Star Crossed, Eternal Law, Odyssey 5 (biggest rating on SHOWTIME), and many others. But they keep or start more CSI shows, reality shows, etc that we don’t need no matter what you think. Why can’t we have shows like these to watch and not every channel is a CSIs, reality shows, etc almost 24/7.

Scott I am so with you! So many of us are sick of scripted reality crap. Give us something we an use our imagination on please! Watching the rich and so called famous is not entertaining.
