Star Season 4: Renewal Status
Even after all the efforts by creator Lee Daniels, Fox has canceled the musical show- Star. Daniels took on to Instagram to share the unfortunate news. He posted a video speaking about the cancelation.

Why Did Fox Cancel The Show?
In an interview with Deadline Charlie Collier (Fox Entertainment CEO) revealed that they had to keep one show between Empire and Star. Star’s cancellation came as they prioritized Empire as it was on for its sixth and final season. Collier called the cancellation of the musical drama a tough choice. But, they wanted to give Empire a send-off it deserved.
Speaking on Fox’s behalf in a press call, Collier says that they looked at their priorities. He went on to say that it was challenging for them to move Empire to the 9 pm slot because Star was always the lead out from the show. They didn’t have a 10 pm slot, so that was another tough choice they had to make while choosing between Star and Empire.
Honestly, Star’s cancellation wasn’t unexpected. Recently Fox has picked up many new dramas. The musical drama- Star ranked solid but could not grab great ratings. Along with that, the production of the show is very expensive. Star’s International sale has particularly very difficult. All this only added the cancellation of Star Season 4.
