Reign's Torrance Coombs Exiting, Joining ABC Pilot

at .

Is Bash going to visit his dearly departed brother, Francis?

Honestly, we don't know, but Reign Season 3 will be the end of the line for Torrance Coombs, who has joined an ABC pilot

Torrance Coombs

The pilot is Still Star-Crossed, a period piece following what happens to the Montagues and the Capulets in the wake of the events told in Romeo and Juliet.

Coombs will be playing Count Paris, the Count of Mantua. He was betrothed to marry Juliet and finds he is sad at her passing despite never having met.

He's described as a "young Prince Charming" and yet appears set up to be the villain in this extended tale.

There has been no word on a renewal for Reign, but Coomb's departure shouldn't have much impact on that since they stopped writing good stories for the character long ago. 

That doesn't mean his departure won't have an impact on ratings. 

How do you feel about this news? Will you follow him to a new program should Still Star-Crossed get picked up?

Have your say!

Reign Quotes

Conde: I hear you. I do. But of all the reasons you've expound of why we can't be together none are of the heart. I have to fight every instinct I have pulling me toward you. When I'm near you I am aware of every breath you take and when I am away even the wind in the trees reminds me of you.
Mary: You will be the death of me and I of you.

My dear, this was not an act of passion. It was treason.

Queen Catherine
