Lee Daniels series, Star, has been canceled after three season on air, Variety reports. The series starring Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady, Quincy Brown, Queen Latifah and Amiyah Scott aired it’s season three finale on May 8.
The finale ended on a cliffhanger with the murder of one character and several other characters being shot and possibly killed during a wedding scene between Destiny and Brown’s characters, Alex and Derek.
According to Shadow & Act the cancelation wasn’t ratings related but likely due to Disney’s $71. billion Fox acquisition. The network also canned freshman series The Passage, as well as Lethal Weapon and The Cool Kids.
Star, which was created by Daniels and Tom Donaghy, premiered in 2016 and airs after Daniels’ other music-related series, Empire. The hourlong weekly drama follows the story of three young singers, Star (Demorest) Simone (O’Grady) and Alex, as they set out on the road to stardom and the obstacles they endure while navigating through the music industry.
