Shakespeare never gave a reason for the rivalry between the Montagues and Capulets. Sometimes people just don't like each other.

While the rivalry is strong it can't deter love. Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet were meant to be together forever. 

And that's exactly how they end up.

We all know the story and how it ends, but what happened after?

That's what Shondaland will explore in Still Star-Crossed, a new period drama based on the 2013 novel by Melinda Taub.

We can't imagine that the rivalry calmed down after their tragic deaths, but how bad did it get? Will anyone be able to broker peace between the two families?

Here is the official synopsis for Still Star-Crossed Season 1 Episode 1:

"In the wake of Romeo and Juliet's tragic deaths, the Montague and Capulet rivalry escalates. A new royal takes the throne in Verona and struggles to determine what is best for his city, which is at the epicenter of mayhem."

Still Star-Crossed Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

Benvolio: And just like that you've ruined your life.
Romeo: How? Because I married the woman I love instead of one my father would force on me.

Rosaline: This is madness, Friar. I know not why you perform a wedding between a Capulet and Montague.
Juliet: Rosaline!
Friar Lawrence: Because I have performed far too many funerals with both your families this summer and who's to say that love won't succeed where violence has failed?
