Plot Synopsis

Featuring a soundtrack of original music and music performances, STAR is a one-hour drama series that follows three talented singers -- running from their pasts and desperate for a new start -- with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. But reality soon dawns on the girls' fantasies, and they start to learn that ambition often comes at a cost. Star, a tough-as-nails young woman who came up in the foster care system, tracks down her sister, Simone, and her Instagram bestie, Alexandra, and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars. Once there, Carlotta becomes a surrogate mother to the young crew, which also includes Cotton, and they find Jahil, a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career, who's taken a certain interest in Star. On Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX broadcast a special premiere of STAR, with the official series premiere scheduled for three weeks later on Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 9pm.
On Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the Season 1 finale of STAR with guest star Big Boi. In the season ender, "Showtime," Star is troubled as she deals with the aftermath of Hunter's actions, while Derek and Alex struggle to make an important decision about their future. With Atlanta NextFest quickly approaching, the girls are putting the finishing touches on their routine. Will it be enough or will this be the end of their musical dream -- Carlotta is determined to mend broken relationships, while Jahil tries to get back in the good graces of the girls. Three weeks earlier -- on February 22 -- FOX announced it picked up STAR for a second season.
