The series had multiple crossover episodes and several guest stars including  Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell, , Gladys Knight, Missy Elliott, Big Boi and Paris Jackson, who also made her acting debut on the series.

It is important to note “Star” had solid but, experienced low ratings last November following the Jussie Smollett incident. Moreover, as Deadline explains the “ drama is expensive to produce, and its international sales have been challenging, which made the renewal decisions a bit more complex.” Deadline added Star's cancellation was “not unexpected.”

This news comes after Fox cancels “The ” and “The Passage,” two shows that also filmed in Georgia. Even mentioning the fact, three companies promised not to shoot in Georgia over the passing of the “heartbeat” legislation.
