After a shocking finale, “Star” Season 2 is set to premiere on Wednesday with even more drama. and hopefully, answers to several questions. When the series returns to Fox, Star, Alexandra and Simone will be forced to face several challenges while attempting to maintain their music career.

“Star (Jude Demorest) goes to great lengths to assure that the group gets a release date for their album while still dealing with the repercussions of Hunter’s (Chad James Buchanan) death,” the synopsis for episode 1, “The Winner Take All” teases.

Star has never been afraid to do whatever needs to be done to secure her spot at the top, and it seems like the recent murder will not stop her from achieving her dreams.

In the Season 1 finale, Star finally stood up to Hunter, who hit her several times throughout the course of their relationship, by breaking his throwing arm and seemingly ruining his football career. Hunter ran to see Jahil (Benjamin Bratt), but Eva (Sharlene Taulé) was the only one home.

The two ended up getting intimate, and while they were in bed, they were murdered in a massive shooting that was meant to kill Jahil.

In the “Star” Season 2, episode 1 promo, Star can be seen sitting in what looks to be a police interrogation room. Could she be a suspect in Hunter’s murder?

She can later be heard telling someone that the group has one shot to achieve their dreams and that she will be the one to make it happen.

“A frustrated Simone (Brittany O’Grady) struggles with bullying and Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) moves in with Derek (Quincy Brown) despite the hardships they’ve experienced,” the synopsis for “The Winner Take All” says. In the promo, Alexandra can be heard saying that she has lost everything.

Last season, she and Derek got into a car accident. While she walked away with merely a scratch, doctors told Derek that there was a good chance he would never walk again.
