Juliet Simms heads to ‘Paradise City’ for ‘American Satan’ spinoff
It’s been nearly a year-and-a-half since American Satan announced its TV series spinoff. With news of Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn joining the cast over the summer, another familiar face is headed to Paradise City as Juliet Simms revealed her role.
Produced and directed by Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen, the American Satan film debuted Oct. 13, 2017. It starred Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack and Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce among others. The duo were among the members of the Relentless with Biersack’s vocals coming from Palaye Royale frontman Remington Leith.
The American Satan spinoff was first announced in June 2018 with the original cast teasing their return in September of that year. Bruce confirmed he would be returning with Biersack and former pro-wrestler Natalie Eva Marie signed on as a new addition in November 2018.
Twilight actor Booboo Stewart also returned after the original film appearing alongside new addition Bella Thorne in a behind-the-scenes photo in May. The late Cameron Boyce will also appear in the series marking one of his final roles before passing in July.
This week, Simms took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes image from the set. The vocalist stands alongside Starbenders frontwoman Kimi Shelter and drummer Emily Moon, fitness guru Paige Hathaway and PINK FLY bassist Renee Phoenix. Simms captions the photo with the Mavens hashtag, suggesting this might be the name of the onscreen band:
i can’t express how honored i am to be a part of the @paradisecity cast! this was new territory for me and i must admit i was incredibly nervous the first day of shooting. thank you to @ashavildsen for making it an exhilarating experience, guiding me through this scene, giving me the opportunity and taking a chance on this songstress from Florida?you all are in for an incredible series??? #themavens #paradisecity #sumerianrecords
Simms signed with Sumerian Records earlier this year, sharing her first single with the label, “Bad Love.”
Shortly after Simms’ post, the official Paradise City account shared another image of Simms with Shelter. With it, they also revealed an announcement was on the way. “When you and your friend hear there’s finally an official announcement coming next week,” the post reads.
An exact release date hasn’t been revealed yet with the series originally revealing it was due out later this year. With the tease of an announcement next week, we can only hope that means a release date or trailer is on the horizon. In the meantime, relive the original with the film’s trailer below.
