Star has been renewed for a third season at Fox.
This comes as its ‘sister’ series Empire, also from Lee Daniels, was renewed for a fifth season last week.
The music-themed drama has had strong ratings since its 2016 premiere and ranks third among Fox dramas, behind juggernaut Empire and only a little bit behind freshman standout 9-1-1.
In March, for the first time, Star beat top-ranked ABC comedy Modern Family in the coveted 18-49 demo.
Featuring a soundtrack of original music and musical performances, Star follows three talented singers (played by Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady), desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business on their road to success. The show also stars Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Amiyah Scott, Miss Lawrence, Luke James and Quincy Brown. Recurring cast members added for this season include Evan Ross, Elijah Kelley and Keke Palmer, Patti LaBelle, Brandy and La La Anthony.
