What do you think? Do you watch Star? Are you glad it’s been renewed?
Star keeps on my and will not miss an episode. The music is great and the cast is top notch.
I cannot wait for season two.
One of the best shows on tv
Can’t wait until the second season of Star to start up. This is a great series to watch. I’m excited that there is going to be a second season.
Been waiting for months now for the star show to start playing . I’m really looking forward for the second season to come out on Hulu, I check every day for a new update. This is how the show dies down because y’all still checking on the ratings don’t want to lose your fans to the show hurry up and air . I hate it when they make good shows and take so long to air and then cancel afterwards.
I love the show waiting for it to come on now
