Tv Season Info

The first season of this sci-fi drama follows a group of teenage aliens from the planet Atria as they are integrated into a suburban high school on Earth, despite the protests of some members of each species. After meeting 10 years earlier, Atrian boy Roman (Matt Lanter) and human teenager Emery (Aimee Teegarden) rekindle their friendship and face prejudices from both sides. Their budding relationship is further complicated by the mysterious past of Roman's family, Emery's connection with fellow student Grayson (Grey Damon), and the objections of their friends and families. Elsewhere, Atrian Drake (Greg Finley) and queen-bee human Taylor (Natalie Hall) find themselves drawn to each other and struggle to maintain a forbidden relationship.

Critic Reviews for Star-Crossed: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (13)

Star-Crossed is without question a cool concept. There's romance, testosterone overload (and whatever the Atrian hormone is), conflict, betrayal, family melodrama, red-plastic-cup parties, a little sci-fi.

Plenty of potential, if Star-Crossed stops talking down to us.

It's too soon the count the show out. The principals are attractive, and the first two episodes set up some plot threads that could twist together well.

The guy [Vartan] is so laughably over-the-top oily that conservative TV and radio hosts will be entitled to whatever field days they might be planning.

It shows extra ambition by putting its outsiders so constantly and viscerally close to those who suspect and fear them. Add forbidden love, which can never escape the shadow of potential doom, and [it] could become both provocative and entertaining.

The tone is mostly dreary and the plot with few exceptions goes precisely where you expect.
