Defiance's Grant Bowler Joins Romeo & Juliet Sequel Pilot From Shondaland

We know where Defiance‘s Joshua Nolan eventually landed — now that Grant Bowler has boarded Shondaland’s Romeo & Juliet sequel pilot, Still Star-Crossed.

Based on the book by Melinda Taub and picking up where Shakespeare’s play left off, the ABC project charts the treachery, palace intrigue and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of Romeo and Juliet’s tragic fate. Specifically, the story follows Rosaline (Lashana Lynch of BBC Three’s Crims), Juliet’s servant cousin who is ordered to marry Benvolio (Home and Away‘s Wade Briggs), a Montague.

Per our sister site Deadline, Bowler will play the ruthless, Machiavellian Lord Montague. In addition to his Defiance run, the actor’s previous Stateside TV credits include Getting On, True Blood and Ugly Betty.

Still Star-Crossed also costars Torrance Coombs (Reign), Zuleikha Robinson (Lost), Sterling Sulieman (In Time), Dan Hildebrand (Sons of Anarchy), Ebonée Noel and Medalion Rahimi.

    Still too soon. I wanted Defiance to keep going forever. It certainly wasn’t Eureka good, but it was still pretty fun.

    …or you could just bring back Defiance? ;)- I jest (sort of) never read the book but it’s actually an interesting premise in honesty I always preferred the supporting characters in Romeo and Juliet so to see how they might of progressed sounds like something I would like so I will check it out. Having Grant in it is just frosting on top.
