After it was announced that FOX show 'star' has been canceled, Lee Daniels vowed to revive the show - but to no avail.

"It ain't happening," he said in a video posted to social media. "I did my best. Just know that like with Precious or Empire … The Butler, Monster's Ball, the next thing I do is going to be Star. It will exist in all my work."

He thanked supporters of the show in the post's caption:

"Thank you guys for loving Star! I’m at a loss for words to describe my sadness. So I’m gunna just say THANKS my incredible cast and crew and FANS!!!! And a shout out to #foxtv for letting us into your homes every Wednesday 💫❤️" he wrote.

'Star,' based in Atlanta, three young women (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, and Brittany O’Grady) who form a girl group and navigate the savage entertainment business on their way to success. Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, and Lenny Kravitz also starred in the show.
