May 11 (UPI) -- Fox has canceled its Lee Daniels-created and Queen Latifah-led music drama Star after three seasons.

Variety said the network also axed its retirement-community comedy The Cool Kids -- starring Vicky Lawrence and Martin Mull -- and supernatural series The Passage -- featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Henry Ian Cusick -- after one season.

Deadline.com reported the network's buddy cop show Lethal Weapon won't return for another season either.

Inspired by the popular films from the 1980s and early '90s, the show starred Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans as a mismatched team of police detectives. Crawford was fired after two seasons and replaced by Seann William Scott in Season 3.

Wayans publicly said he didn't want to return for Season 4.

The Gifted -- a spinoff of the X-Men franchise -- recently was canceled by the network, but the sitcom Last Man Standing and Daniels' drama Empire have been renewed for Fox's 2019-20 season.
