For the most part, ABC’s summer programming focuses on reality TV series, like The Bachelorette and game shows like Celebrity Family Feud. Still, the Alphabet Network always makes a little room for summertime scripted series. Although Mistresses was cancelled after four seasons, last fall, the Downward Dog sitcom premiered in May, and the Somewhere Between drama series kicks off in July. Joining them is the Still Star-Crossed TV show. Will this Romeo and Juliet sequel be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
A Shondaland TV series adaptation of Melinda Taub’s novel, Still Star-Crossed stars Grant Bowler, Wade Briggs, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Lashana Lynch, Ebonee Noel, Medalion Rahimi, Zuleikha Robinson, Sterling Sulieman, Susan Wooldridge, and Anthony Head. The ABC drama features the bloodshed and palace intrigue overwhelming fair Verona in the aftermath of the tragic deaths of Romeo (Laviscount) and Juliet (Rugaard). To force a truce, Prince Escalus (Sulieman), decrees Benvolio Montague (Briggs) and Rosaline Capulet (Lynch) must wed.
