The story of three girls’ rise to fame, “Star’s” first season ended on the heels of a victory, as the singing trio caught its first big break – winning Atlanta NextFest. Heading into Season Two, one thing is clear: their lives will never be the same. It’s a whole new world for the girls, as Star (Jude Demorest), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Simone (Brittany O’Grady) 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.

In addition to its ensemble cast, the series has featured a star-studded roster of guest stars, including Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz, supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell, Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson, empress of soul Gladys Knight, Grammy Award winner Missy Elliott, Grammy Award-nominated artist Big Boi and Paris Jackson, who made her acting debut on the series.
