It is being reported that Fox has added an additional five episodes to the second season of Star. The good news comes just two episodes into the musical drama's sophomore run, in which both airings have performed solidly following its Empire lead-in on Wednesday nights.

Co-created by Lee Daniels, who is also behind the popular Empire, Star follows a young woman from a troubled upbringing who decides to take control of her own destiny by traveling to Atlanta with her sister and best friend in search of a career in the music business.

Today's top-up brings Season 2 of Star up to a total of 18 episodes, which matches the count of Empire. This likely means that the two shows will continued to be paired up for the duration of the 2017-2018 season.
