There will be no encore for Star. The Empire spin-off has been canceled after three seasons, reports Variety. The news isn't surprising given the show's low ratings, but the abrupt conclusion leaves major questions looming after that shocking Season 3 cliffhanger.

The finale ended in bloodshed after Miss Ruby (Juanita Jennings) was gunned down by the same Bankhead gang members who later opened fire on unsuspecting guests during Derek (Quincy Brown) and Alex's (Ryan Destiny) wedding reception. While the bride and groom managed to walk away unscathed, others weren't so lucky. Carlotta's (Queen Latifah) sister Cassie (Brandy) was seriously injured after using her body to shield her sibling from the onslaught of bullets. Meanwhile, Angel (Evan Ross) took several shots to the chest and Mateo (William Levy) was last seen bleeding out on the floor. With the show not returning next season, the fates of these characters remain unknown.
