Lee Daniels says his canceled Fox drama “Star” will be getting a proper send off, of sorts, in the form of what he called “movie of the week.”

“I wanted to share some and news and good news. The bad news is that star is not getting picked up for series. To long of a story to cry about. But the good news is that we’re doing a movie of the week to wrap things up for y’all,” Daniels said in video posted Friday to his Instagram, which you can watch below. “We’re gonna make something real special for you to scream about with all of our cast members, even the dead ones.”

The 'Empire' creator did not say where the two-hour 'Star' movie would air.

The FOX drama was cancelled in May, just after airing the final episode of its third season. The cancelation came on the heels of the Jussie Smollett controversy, which resulted in Daniels’ shows being put on the bubble, with Star getting canceled and Empire announcing that next season would be its last.
