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.
“Star” has been canceled after three seasons at Fox.
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]
I think it is DISRESPECTFUL to viewers of a show not to have a series finale. I am still on season 1 of Star but now I feel like I will stop watching knowing viewers were not given a proper finale. The viewers are who deliver the ratings that attract the sponsors to keep a show goin. Disrespecting viewers really urges viewers not to trust FOx.
You should definitely keep watching. The show just gets better and better as you go along. And the season 1 finale is going to leave you shook.
Shows get cancelled when they love viewers and fail to attract new viewers (aka your slow ass stuck on season 1); they cut loose and keep it moving.
DAMN after that Series Finale they not gonna tell us what happens next. FOUL PLAY!!!!!
I guess one of the Star cast should have gotten beat up by TRUMP supporters……
No, just stupid and ignorant. Carry on.
complete B*******. I LOVED this show and watching Brandy and Queen Latifah every week was entertaining.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That ending was waaaaaaaaaaay too good not to come back! WTF?????????????
They’re probably gonna merge it with Empire cuz if you watched the Empire finale Becky & Giselle started a all women’s label
Excellent observation! Hopefully that’s the case! I’d really like that!
I have a feeling that they are gonna merge it.
Noooo I need to know what happened next, how they gonna do me like that after that finale. Some other network needs to pick it up. Maybe Netflix
WHOA! I thought Empire would get canceled and Star would thrive. HMMMM!
Lol well that was dumb of you. Star was tired and corny. I’m shocked it lasted past season 2.
Lol. Makes sense, the show was tired to begin with. I’m just here to see which idiots are gonna blame Jussie Smollet for this lol ?
Although I have not completed season 3, i am sad to hear the news. Hopefully, it will get picked up by another network…
I pray BET doesn’t! They messed up #HitTheFloor smh.. they’ll do the same with STAR. I’d rather VH1 pick it up. Or maybe even OWN!
Who would pick this up? BET because they don’t have programs aside from reruns? Kinda shocked it lasted three seasons. Sorry for its fans!
Hmmm after this cancellation I won’t be surprise if Empire ends after the 6 season. Tbh both shows ran their course.
I AM PISSED! TF !!! WHY?!?!?! WHAT HAPPENED?!?! SMH. ugh this is crazy! Like for real! Why? I heard STAR was on the rise with ratings each season and somewhat ever episode. Smh
I think that was a horrible choice that was a good show. The way the episode ended was crushing how do you end a show that way ever smh
All that lazy writing asa the asas talk was not a strong center to get everyone together and Jussie smallest is to blame fox wanna dump lee and found this was a good start. His whole brand looked bad now. Empire next it’s crazy star was good and the music too and empire was getting good again

I totally Disagree with the Star franchise being cancelled! I actually started making sure I didn’t miss any of the Star episodes but was able to blow Empire off! Maybe y’all can find a different network to air Star. I’m not trying to say that Empire is horrible because I do watch it. I just know that everybody that watches Star is truly unhappy!!! Guess I won’t be watching Empire. They can stay & Star needs to stay too!! Please bring it back!!!
