What’s This TV Show About?
A Shondaland TV series airing on the ABC television network, Still Star-Crossed stars: Grant Bowler, Wade Briggs, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Lashana Lynch, Ebonee Noel, Medalion Rahimi, Zuleikha Robinson, Sterling Sulieman, Susan Wooldridge, Anthony Head, Caspar, Carl Chambers, Greg Chillen, Shazad Latif, Clara Rugaard, and Lucien Laviscount.

Season One Ratings
Although Still Star-Crossed premiered with very weak numbers, it is still a bit too early to asses the ratings and predict whether ABC will cancel or renew this Romeo and Juliet sequel series for season two. So, let’s look at what do know…
Firstly, Still Star-Crossed is based on a novel, which is a finite work. Secondly, ABC only ended up ordering seven episodes of the series, despite the fact that it hails from Shonda Rhimes’ banner. And, we only found out about the short order, thanks to an actor’s tweet. Thirdly, a few months after the Alphabet Network ordered the drama to series, it took the title off the press website and replaced it with “Untitled Shondaland,” only to revert to the original title, eventually.
In addition, Still Star-Crossed was originally supposed to premiere in either the fall or mid-year, in the 2016-17 television season, but then network ended up delaying it. At the time, ABC boss Channing Dungey admitted it was taking them longer to produce than originally expected. While flying blind, my guess is that at the end of its run, ABC will say it was always meant to be a closed-ended “limited event series,” and let the show go the way of Juliet and her Romeo. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page. Subscribe for free updates on any Still Star-Crossed cancellation and renewal news.
