Fox Announces The End Of ‘Star’ After Its Third Season
The Fox music drama Star has reached the end of the road after three years on the air.
According to Deadline, Fox made the announcement on Friday and since then, stars of the show have been reflecting on their experience.
Actress and singer Jude Demorest, who played Star Davis on the series, tweeted a message to her fans on Friday night, reading, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” In her photo collage of cast members, she also wrote, “To every one of you who laughed, cried, sang & danced with us. Thank you. For the best three years. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.”
Ryan Destiny, who co-starred on the show as the up-and-coming singer Alexandra, also went on Twitter to thank the fans for tuning in. “To the fans, we love you,” she tweeted along with a photo of the cast sharing a hug.
Quincy Brown, who played Derek in the show, added to the love by tweeting a link to an article announcing the cancelation of Star and captioning it, “#STARFOREVER.”
Star debuted in 2016 right after the still-on-air Empire. Like Empire, Lee Daniels was also the co-creator of Star along with Tom Donaghy. It followed three talented singers as they navigated the highs and lows of the music industry. Daniels and Donaghy also executive produced along with Pamela Oas Williams. Music legends like Queen Latifah and Brandy also appeared on the show.
The finale for season three aired on Wednesday, May 8. Despite its cancelation from Fox, there’s still a chance the show can continue since it’s currently being shopped around to other outlets. It’ll partially be up to the fans to vocalize their support for future seasons.
