Season Finale Wednesday, March 15 at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX
         Season one of “Star” has delivered its promise as far as pulling back the curtain on music’s gritty and dark realities.

          The season finale will even have its “Who Shot JR” moment, when we find out who killed Otis Leecan (Darius McCrary).

          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 in the all-new “Showtime” season finale episode of STAR


         STAR is an emotionally powerful drama 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.  But reality soon dawns on the girls’ fantasies, and they start to learn that ambition often comes at a cost. Star (Jude Demorest) is a tough-as-nails young woman, who came up in the foster care system and seceded one day to rake control of her destiny. Star tracks down her sister, Simone (Brittany O’Grady), and her Instagram bestie, (Ryan Destiny), and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars. Will the Atlanta Next Fest singing contest successfully serve as a launching pad?

         Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah stars as Carlotta, a surrogate mother to the young crew that also includes Cotton (Amiyah Scott). Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt plays Jahil, a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career, who’s taken a certain interest in Star. The series has also featured guest stars Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz, supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell and Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson.
