Watch as the trio of Star reach for their dreams with a new manager Carlotta as Queen Latifah
FOX, DStv channel 125 is bringing the brand new season of Lee Daniels' Star where one thing is clear, things will never be the same again.
Don't miss Lee Daniels' Star starting on Thursday 18 January at 21:00 on FOX. Also available on DStv Now.
What happened in season 1?
We saw Star (Jude Demorest), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Simone (Brittany O’Grady) get together and form a group which rose to fame with the help of Jahil, a down and out producer who hope to use the girls as his ticket back into the limelight. At the end of the season they finally succeed by winning the Atlanta NextFest.
What’s going to happen in season 2?
The girls prepare for their next career move with help and guidance from Carlotta (Queen Latifah), the group’s new manager. Having entered into a deal with Midtown Sound, the girls and Carlotta must contend with upheavals at their new label.
Meanwhile, after a harrowing stint in prison, Cotton (Amiyah Scott) must find a way to re-enter society as a convicted felon. And, with Derek (Quincy Brown) facing the possibility of never walking again, Alexandra must work to keep their romance alive, while balancing her own career goals. Finally, the fate of Jahil (Benjamin Bratt) remains decidedly unclear, following last season’s shocking and explosive finale.
