STAR creator Lee Daniels recently made it clear that his efforts to save the show following its cancellation have, unfortunately, gone up in smoke. Yet, that doesn’t mean that the story for these characters is 100% over just yet.
In a new post on Instagram, Daniels is now confirming that there will be some sort of closure when it comes to the future of STAR — what that means remains to be seen, but he’s going to be working on some way to satisfy fans.
There are, of course, a number of different forms this could take. For example, maybe he just means getting together some sort of script or written story that explains where things were going to go in the aftermath of that disastrous, bloody wedding — probably the most violent one we’ve seen since Game of Thrones. Another possibility is that the cast could get back together to film some sort of coda, even if it is just a handful of scenes. Maybe it’s an additional episode, or even a movie. One way or another, it does seem as though Daniels wants to do something.

What is incredible about this is that clearly, STAR has itself an executive producer who cares about the property so much that he wants to ensure there’s a fitting end, even if that means that he has to find a way to potentially handle the costs separately from a major network. The support that he is showing STAR fans is absolutely next-level.
One other interesting thing that comes from Daniels’ Instagram is his statement that fans shouldn’t be too angry at Fox — he attributes the decision to simply “business” and expresses gratitude for getting to do what he did for three years with this show. Fundamentally, Daniels is right — STAR was canceled almost entirely due to the Disney-Fox deal, given that at its completion Fox the network no longer had ownership of the operating studio. Because of that, their profit-share of a show like STAR was smaller than what it once was — and because this is a show with a reasonably hefty price tag due to its multiple musical numbers and large cast, there wasn’t really a way for them to keep it around.
What does remain interesting about this TV season
While there were certainly a number of cancellations out there this year, we have yet to see a single show saved by another network. Last year, there were three prominent ones in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Lucifer, and Designated Survivor. With STAR failing to find a new home and Whiskey Cavalier already failing in its second attempt, we’re not altogether optimistic that anyone is going to be getting another batch of episodes anytime soon.
