For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo. If you’re betting folding dollars in the cancellation stakes, bet on this: ABC’s Still Star-Crossed will be cancelled after one season, with no season two. Tonight, Deadline reports that after three largely unwatched episodes, the Alphabet Network is moving Still Star-Crossed from its post-Bachelorette Monday evening timeslot, to Saturdays.
A diverse 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. The Romeo and Juliet sequel series features the bloodshed and palace intrigue overwhelming fair Verona, in the aftermath of the tragic deaths of Romeo (Laviscount) and Juliet (Rugaard).
Here is more, from Deadline:
Shondaland’s Still Star-Crossed‘s Monday run is over after three low-rated outings. Starting this coming week, the Romeo & Juliet sequel no longer will air in its assigned Monday time slot. After a break, the ABC series will continue its freshman run on July 8, airing on Saturdays.
The scheduling downgrade is a clear sign that the medieval drama won’t go beyond its first season. Still Star-Crossed is expected to get a de facto cancellation next week when the options on the cast expire.
Still Star-Crossed: A Look at the Ratings
My bet is that ABC hoped this Shondaland series had wings, but mid-way into production, realized it did not. I can’t “know” that, but I believe it to be the truth.
