For all of you Star fans here’s a bit of good news.  Fox has ordered five additional episodes of the musical drama series!  The additional five episodes will bring it’s episode number to 18 (the same number of episodes as Empire).

The series follows three talented singers (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady) as they navigate the cutthroat music business on their road to success, launched last season as a 13-episode midseason show. Its Season 2 started September 27 with an Empire crossover episode and was the highest-rated episode since its series debut with a 2.4//8 in Live+7. It also post the best seven-day multiplatform audience since that January 17 kickoff.

On this week’s episode, while preparing for an upcoming TV appearance with recording artist Noah Brooks (Luke James), the girls (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) learn that they will be singing backup rather than co-headlining the performance. Anxious for the girls’ next big move, Carlotta (Queen Latifah) turns to the new A&R executive, Maurice (guest star Lance Gross), for help on a new deal. Meanwhile, Jahil (Benjamin Bratt) tries his hand at producing music, Cotton (Amiyah Scott) struggles with starting her new job and Star (Demorest) comes face-to-face with an unexpected person from her past.

Star features Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Amiyah Scott, Miss Lawrence and Quincy Brown. New faces in the cast this season include Evan Ross, Mike Epps, Michael Michele, Keke Palmer and Elijah Kelley.
