Good news for fans of love triangles, intrigue, backstabbing, and gorgeous period costumes, Still Star Crossed is exactly what you’ve been waiting for!
New from legendary American show-runner and producer Shonda Rhimes (How To Get Away With Murder, Grey’s Anatomy), the series takes place after Romeo and Juliet, following the feuding Montagues and Capulets as they try to deal with the loss of their children. But where this tragedy ends, an even greater story begins.
The deaths of Romeo and Juliet have escalated the feud between the two families. The streets of Verona have become dangerous and the kingdom is vulnerable to attack.
The young ruling Prince of Verona, Escalus, wants to bring peace to the kingdom by marrying a Capulet to a Montague to unite the families and strengthen his position.
He commands a union between Romeo’s cousin, the womanizing Benvolio, with Juliet’s cousin, Rosaline, who is in love with Prince Escalus. But these two will have to banter their way through their courtship in the midst of treachery and palace intrigue.
Another star-crossed love story begins. Who’s to say that love won’t succeed where violence has filed?
