‘Star’ Cancelled at Fox, Won’t Return for Season 4
We all saw this coming. Stars character had gotten way to volatile and too bitchie. Every time you looked around she was angry about something or with someone.
In its third season, the Atlanta-based drama — which starred Queen Latifah, Brandy Norwood, Jude Demorest, Brittany O’Grady, Ryan Destiny, Amiyah Scott, Quincy Brown and Luke James averaged 3.5 million viewers and a 1.06 demo rating (in Live+Same Day numbers). That’s down from Season 2’s 4.1 mil/1.3 average, while the show hit series lows as recently as May 1.
The Season 3 finale — which aired on Wednesday — ended on a major cliffhanger, with multiple lives hanging in the balance.
Star‘s cancellation comes just one week after Fox renewed sorta-sister drama Empire for a sixth season. It also comes on the same day that Fox axed a number of other series, including The Passage, Lethal Weapon and The Cool Kids.
