It’s a drama that takes up where Romeo and Juliet ended, more or less. The series intends to fashion its plotlines from the continuing blood feud between the Montagues and Capulets.

At the heart of the story are the Capulet sisters: the fierce Rosaline (Lashana Lynch), mired in a political play to save Verona, and the dreamy Livia (Ebonee Noel), hoping to marry her way into her heart’s desires.

Benvolio Montague (Wade Briggs), now the sole heir to the family name, must partake in a sinister scheme to propel his clan up the social ladder
