Full report below…
The series was built following the success of Daniels’ show ‘Empire’ and starred Queen Latifah, Brandy, Ryan Destiny and Luke James.
Unfortunately, the show- like ‘Empire’– was booted from Fox’s books and cancelled much to the dismay of the fans who tuned in religiously to catch its stars in melodramatic action.
Efforts were made to sell the series to another platform but today, after weeks of keeping hope alive, said fans discovered that it was rejected by all of the companies it hoped would save it from complete cancellation.
BET, OWN, and more recently/surprisingly, Amazon, had been approached for interest in a fourth season of the Empire spinoff.
Lee had this to say…
Karma hit Lee Daniels and Steve Harvey bad, Steve got hit even worse. Monique must be smiling right now. Steve betrayed her & boldly said it’s not about integrity, but the “money game”. And now he’s been played out of the game 😂😂😂

Mo’Nique, the Oscar winning actress Daniels is said to have blacklisted, urged critics to think twice about mocking his “misfortune” as the show’s demise spells trouble for its hard working cast and crew…all of whom must now find a new source of income.
The good shows always get cancelled. I hope Lee Daniels considers making a movie to give Star a proper ending. That finale was too good. https://t.co/zhtP4BjlmR
