Exactly one year since its last renewal, Fox has cancelled Star after three seasons on the air. The musical drama aired its now-series finale earlier this week.

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 travelling 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 kept it there for Season 3. While it still drew respectable numbers, Star's viewership been hitting lows during the latter half of its final run.
