Star will be back for Season 2 in the 2017-18 season, but how will it survive beyond that? At today’s upfronts, FOX teased the Star Season 3 renewal plan, per THR:
Fox is taking a very different strategy with Star for its sophomore season. After using Lee Daniels’ pseudo-spinoff as a bridge during the Empire break, the two shows will now air together — with Empire now opening Wednesdays.
Walden and Newman appeared confident that Star, which returns with its third showrunner in the fall, will be better-served by airing alongside the flagship. [..]Further hinting at things to come, a musical number from Jussie Smollet even segued into a performance from the cast of Star. The network even trotted out Taraji P. Henson, by far the most charming weapon in their artillery, to hype Empire’s new time slot neighbor.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renew/cancel status of Star Season 3 as we head into the 2017-18 season…
