Fans of the Lee Daniels-directed ‘Empire’ (as we reported here) hopeful the news of its renewal would trickle down to his other FOX series, ‘Star,’ were dealt a crushing blow earlier today when it was announced the musical drama would not be returning for season 4.
The musical drama from Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy told the story of three girls’ rise to fame. It starred Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady, Queen Latifah, Quincy Brown and Amiyah Scott. Daniels, Pamela Oas Williams and Karin Gist were executive producers; Gist was also the showrunner. The series was a production of 20th Century Fox Television in association with Lee Daniels Entertainment. [source]
