Filmmaker Lee Daniels said he plans to wrap up his canceled series Star with a 2-hour TV movie.

Fox declined to order a fourth season of the show, which starred Queen Latifah, Judy Demorest and Brittany O'Grady. The drama is about young half-sisters navigating the treacherous waters of the music industry.

Even though these series did better than some popular ones, it wasn't enough to bring them back for more.

Daniels discussed the project's revival in a video he posted on Instagram Friday.

Daniels, 59, is also the creator of Fox's Empire, featuring Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard and Jussie Smollett.

Daniels said Smollett, who has been embroiled in legal woes since he was accused of staging a fake hate crime in Chicago, will not return for the last episodes.

Smollett has denied any wrongdoing.
