Star” will exit the stage after 3 seasons. The FOX drama was cancelled Friday night, just after airing the final episode of its third season on Wednesday. With this announcement, it has become apparent that the cliffhangers presented in its finale will likely never be resolved. The drama, which prominently featured the city of Atlanta, starred Queen Latifah, Brandy Norwood, Jude Demorest, Brittany O’Grady, Ryan Destiny, Amiyah Scott, Quincy Brown and Luke James. It also took place in the same universe as the recently-renewed “Empire,” making it something of a sister-series to the popular musical drama. Ratings-wise, “Star” and “Empire” had little in common, though; “Star” was rating about a 1.1 in adults 18-49 per episode this season, and though it wasn’t marked as a likely cancellation, the news isn’t incredibly surprising. Star” is now the fifth scripted original to be canceled at FOX thus far, following the end of “The Cool Kids” and “The Passage” earlier today, as well as “REL” and “The Gifted” from a few weeks ago. There were, however, 7 renewals for scripted titles this season: “9-1-1,” “The Resident,” “Empire,” “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and “Last Man Standing.” Each of the 7 will return for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.
Steve Harvey‘s daytime talk show has been canceled by NBC after seven years with the network. The syndicated show taped its final episode on Thursday and episodes will air through June with reruns airing through September, according to Variety. The news may have not been surprising to Harvey himself, who expressed uncertainty over the show’s place at the network back in January. At the time, Harvey singled out Kelly Clarkson’s new show as the reason his show would likely find itself looking for a new network in the near future. The Kelly Clarkson Show will move into the daytime slot previously occupied by Harvey’s show for the past seven seasons,Variety reports. Reps for Harvey and NBC did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.
