'Star' Renewed for Second Season by Fox

According to Deadline, Fox has renewed drama series, Star.  The music drama comes with great pedigree, co-created by the co-creator of Fox’s biggest series in years, Empire‘s Lee Daniels, as well as Tom Donaghy. Launching behind the fall finale of Empire, Star has not been a breakout like the soapy hip-hop family drama. But it has been stable.  

Star, whose cast includes Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Jude Demorest, Brittany O’Grady, Ryan Destiny, Amiyah Scott and Quincy Brown, averages 7.5 million multi-platform audience, according to Fox. It follows three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business. The Season 1 finale airs March 15 before Empire returns to the Wednesday 9 PM time period. Guest stars set to appear on Star over the next four weeks include Naomi Campbell, Big Boi, Rickey Smiley, Missy Elliott and Paris Jackson.
