Fox’s music drama Star has been canceled after three seasons. Its producing studio, former Fox sibling 20th Century Fox TV, is already shopping it to other platforms.
Star’s cancellation is not surprising. Fox picked up four new drama series, with a fifth pending, Star, Lethal Weapon and The Passage were canceled today.
Star fans shouldn’t be worried because it will most likely be picked. Don’t be surprised if BET, Netflix, or even the tv network Starz pick up the series.
The show was created by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, Star followed three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business.
Star is pretty similar to Empire so it’s not an unexpected move from Fox. It’s just not a tv show Fox needs right now on their network.
