Congratulations to Brandy!

The singer and actress did such a great job playing the role of Carlotta’s menacing sister, Cassandra Brown, on “STAR,” that she has been promoted to a series regular for season 3 of Fox’s hit music drama.

Which means Carlotta didn’t shoot her dead at the table!

Deadline reports:

Norwood plays Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) sister Cassie Brown. Season three, will be a “War of the Brown Sisters” as they vie for control of the Atlanta music scene.

Co-created by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, Star follows three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business.

In a post on her Instagram page, Brandy wrote:

Dear God, you never cease to listen to my prayers and you never cease to Amaze me.

Thank you for all of your expected and unexpected blessings.

STAR” season 3 premieres September 26 at 9/8c on Fox.
