Description: When Emery was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town. Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn’t matter: a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians. In the midst of the conflict, Roman, a 6-year-old Atrian boy, found his way to a shed behind Emery’s house, where she protected him from harm, bringing him food, comfort – and friendship. In their brief time together, Emery and Roman forged a deep bond, but the authorities wasted no time tracking Roman down and capturing him in a violent confrontation. Emery has grown up believing that Roman was killed that day. Ten years later, the Atrians have been acclimated to life on Earth, but they are interned in a heavily-guarded camp known as the Sector to keep them separate from humans. Now, for the first time, a group of Atrian teens will enroll in a suburban human high school, with the goal of testing the feasibility of human/alien integration. The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavor fraught with suspicion and fear. In the mayhem of the first day, Emery is amazed to learn that Roman was not killed by the authorities and is, in fact, one of the Atrian students. Their childhood bond is quickly rekindled – in a school and a society that distrusts everything about the Atrians, Emery and Roman have found each other again. However, their relationship is threatened by the small-mindedness of their respective communities and the political agendas of people in power. While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous. As an epic Romeo and Juliet romance unfolds, a violent encounter between Roman’s father and Emery’s father occurs in the Sector. Can Roman and Emery’s love – and peace between the species – survive?

Why Was It Cancelled? The fifth place network is typically kinder with its shows, but seemed to have given up on this one before it began. They scheduled it as the lead-in for Mondays which have been a disaster for them for several years. It bowed to poor ratings as expected, though it at least held onto the small audience it garnered. It also developed a vocal fanbase who were (and still are) very active on the social networks. But the network chose to cancel it after its short, thirteen episode run even though its numbers were no worse than Beauty and the Beast which was renewed. An active campaign by the fans currently is trying to convince another network or one of the streaming services to pick up the show, and with its relatively low production costs it may still have a chance.

Can It Be Saved? Of all the sci fi / fantasy shows cancelled during the 2013-14 season, Star-Crossed should be the most viable candidate for saving from a financial standpoint.  Coming from the fifth place network, it should have relatively low production costs.  So one of the cable channels could likely afford it and it could be a decent entry for one of the streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.  And it does have a devoted and vocal fanbase.  The question is whether there are enough of those fans and whether a cable net or streaming service would consider them a signficant driving force to take a flier on the show.  After the 2012-13 season, I though The CW’s Secret Circle would also be a good candidate for saving for the same reasons.  But that show remains cancelled.  A well-targeted campaign by Star-Crossed fans just might have a chance of succeeding, though.

    I could simply and happily divert the money I am spending now to convince The CW that I want Star-Crossed back to paying for it. To me, that would be a VERY good deal!

    Star-Crossed has the most dedicated fans. I myself bought the season on iTunes but I want more and we deserve more just for our fan-base let alone our work and dedication. There’s never been a better show on TV.

    This is a Great Idea! Best of all, depending on who we can get to buy & produce a Season 2 of #StarCrossed, we might NOT have to put up any money up front. Let’s say Amazon.com buys #StarCrossed. We could Pre-Order future Season 2 Episodes on the Amazon Instant Video Web-Site. We would get charged per Episode when the Episode is available for sale. Once we Pre-Order the Episode we are committed to buy it. I have been a loyal Amazon.com Customer for many years. They run a Great business & have a Excellant Customer Service Department. We would need CBS and Amazon.com to get together to work out the details, or see if CBS wil sell the show & Amazon.com will buy it. This can WORK!

    Bought the season on Amazon and we are willing to do a Kickstarter campaign as well as all the other campaigns we have done so far. If we are willing to pre-fund the show which I can pretty much guarantee that Stargazers are more than willing to pay per episode than someone should pick up this show for a second season and give us a shot at proving how dedicated we are to saving this awesome show.

    This show was not even given a chance it has unique story lines and one of the few shows that does. Even falling skies have been taken stories from older shows such as stargate sg1 and sci fi special taken and putting a twist on it but its still plagiarism and not original like star crossed. Its one show that does not treat its viewers as if they are stupid by plagiarising from other programs like I said star crossed is original

      Sorry my typing is really bad I see I made a mistake in a sentence I was saying that starcrossed does not plagiarise their stories are original.

    It seems CW wanted this cancelled before it got started?!?!?! It is the best SciFi story line I have seen in years. Worldwide fans want it back, I don’t understand what the problem is!!! Fans are willing to pay to bring it back and to buy season 1 DVD’s. Thank you Cancelled SciFi for putting this poll out there.

    This was a great series and TheCW made a huge mistake in ending it the way they did. Hopefully a network with more respect for fans will have the good sense to tap into a large and loyal fan base and will pick up the series.

    I would pay quite a bit of Money if they considered putting this show back on….I highly support all my shows and movies. And if this is what it takes I would definitely put half of my paycheck every month to keep this show going and advertise and I’ll even work on the set myself..if I have to.

    I cant belive the CW did this.I took the time out of my day to watch the CW everyday in the hours of 7 and 8.I the CW was organized and coordinated .Monday beauty and the beast ,tuesday super natrual and the Originals, wenesday the tommorrow people which i would sign and pay money to get back.Thursday Vampire Diaries and Friday Carrie diaries.This CW was sorta themed i feal like they were the most unique station.It was like a mistical and superantural creature/people themed.

    STAR-CROSSED IS OR WAS THE MOST UNIQUE TV SHOW ITS ABOUT ALIENS,ITS A LITTLE LOVE STRORY CLE SHAY BUT THE FACT ITS NOT SIMILAR TO ANY SHOW.I HAVE NOT WATCHED THE 100 YET CAUSE I FEALT THERE COULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING ELSE OUT THERE LIKE IT.i SAY TAKE AWAY THAT i zOMBIE SHIT, THE FLASH,THE 100.WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO GET STAR CROSSED BACK.

    I completely agree that star crossed should be brought back. It was an amazing, captivating show with a fast-paced plot line that kept it’s viewers consistently coming back. Watching star crossed, the 100, the originals, reign, vampire diaries, and jane the virgin is what I look forward to all week long. Please do not take away these wonderful stories, only to bring out new shows no one cares about like izombie, and the flash. Please bring star crossed back, we will happily pay.

    They really need to bring back star crossed because out of all the other shows they’ve renewed they canceled the best one yet . I was hoping for another season and more . That show had a message which most didn’t have it told that different kinds could be able to get alone and work together , when the other shows don’t even show that . I believe if they bring the show back it will get many and more views . They just have to be willing to take the risk . On top of all of that how could they just end it like that with that finale . They are willing to keep other shows that aren’t even that great but take the ones that are . Star-Crossed was a TV show I looked forward on seeing but now I can’t because of it being canceled . This is mainly my reason of why I think they should bring the show back and hopefully they take this in consideration and think about renewing the show.

    Hey guys sorry I am late to the party but let me thrown my two cents in the mix. I love love love this show. From the beginning to the end the movie have me wrapped around its finger. The messages that it brings , the morality that it stands for and the unification of two different nation or worlds coming together to be one is simply delightful. I start off like the beauty and the beast show but it lost me so I quit. But this show is really mind blowing and I watch the first season constantly. I recommend the show to many of my friends and family. Dudes and dudettes bring back the blasted show..
