When Will 'Star' Be On Netflix? You May Have To Binge It Somewhere Else
The first season of Star has come to an end and while plenty of fans have already become hooked, some have yet to even see one episode. Now that the season is over, some are hoping to binge watch the whole series to see if it's really worth all the hype. So when will Star be on Netflix? Unfortunately, fans shouldn't expect to see it on there anytime soon.
Unlike The CW, who has a deal with Netflix that says each new season will be on the streaming site eight days after the season ends, FOX doesn't appear to have any such deal. In fact, the network and streaming service have a history of not getting along at all. Last year FOX filed a lawsuit against Netflix for allegedly interfering in contractual relations after Netflix hired two FOX executives. The petition for the suit was ultimately denied.
Currently only 13 of FOX's 30 shows are available for streaming on Netflix, and Empire, which was created by the same team that made Star, is not one of them. This all seems to indicate that Star probably won't be coming to Netflix in the future, but don't despair. While the show won't be on Netflix, you can still find it on Hulu.
The entire first season is currently on Hulu, however unless you have the premiere plan for $11.99 per month you will have to deal with commercials. Alternatively, if you think you'll love Star or have seen enough episodes to feel invested, you can also buy the whole first season on Amazon Video or iTunes for $29.99. You could also buy individual episodes for $2.99 each, if you don't need to watch the whole season.
However you choose to catch up, though, just make sure you do. Star has already been renewed for a second season, according to Deadline, and it'll probably continue to get more and more attention as Empire has done. If you don't want to get left behind, now is the perfect time to catch up on the series before the second season airs in the fall.
For those totally new to Star, the show follows three young women who form a music group in Atlanta. Star (Jude Demorest) spearheads the group, bringing together her half-sister Simone (Brittany O'Grady) and Instagram friend Alex (Ryan Destiny). The show also stars Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt.
Between the great cast and the music, you'll definitely get hooked on Star if you're not already.
