Fox announced today that Star has been picked up for a third season. The musical drama, which has two episodes remaining in its sophomore run, has continued to be a solid performer for the network. Paired with Empire as its lead-in on Wednesday nights, Star is one of Fox's highest-rated dramas in the adults 18-49 demographic.

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.

The series started out in late 2016 as a mid-season entry with a 12-episode run. After an impressive debut outing, Fox moved the show to its regular fall lineup for Season 2 and later topped up its episode count to 18. There are no details yet on the plans for Season 3.
