The second season of StarStruck premiered on October 11, 2004. The council was formed with Joey de Leon, Christopher de Leon, and Louie Ignacio representing it. The show was co-hosted by Dingdong Dantes with the StarStruck Kids (a StarStruck spin-off) host, Jolina Magdangal. There were slight changes made in The Council. Joyce Bernal was replaced by director Louie Ignacio.
The second season of StarStruck was announced once again on GMA Network's variety program, SOP, where the hosts invited teenagers from 14 to 18 years old to audition for the next and new upcoming StarStruck season. Like its first season, much of the auditions were held at the GMA Network's headquarters and at SM Supermalls throughout the Philippines.
The show primer aired the untold secrets of the first season's Final 14; the life they had before and after StarStruck, and the changes StarStruck made into their lives.
The pilot episode was aired on October 11, 2004. With a new set of Survivors and more rigid tests. The same rules were applied in selecting the Ultimate Survivors. StarStruck is shown only weekdays having Mondays to Thursdays will be tests and Fridays would be the elimination night. The show held it’s the Final Judgment on February 1, 2004 at the Araneta Coliseum.
In the 2nd year of the reality-talent search, Out of thousands who auditioned, only TOP 100 was chosen for the first cut. From TOP 100, it was trimmed down to TOP 60, then from TOP 60 to TOP 30, and from TOP 30 to the Final 14 finalists. The Final Fourteen Survivors underwent various workshops and trainings in order to develop their personalities, talents, and charisma. But, the twist is that every week, two of the Final 14 may have to say goodbye until only four remain. Those who were eliminated were dubbed as StarStruck Avengers.
The Final Four Survivors will vie for the coveted "Ultimate Male Survivor" and "Ultimate Female Survivor" titles, each of them has received (P 1,000,000) pesos and exclusive contracts from GMA Network. The Runner-up, received (P 250,000) pesos each. The StarStruck Avengers (the losing contestants) also received an exclusive contracts from the network.
The Final 14 Survivors
When the Final 14 was chosen, they are assigned to different challenges every week that will hone their acting, singing, and dancing abilities. Every Friday, one is meant to leave the competition until there were just 6 others who are left. From Final 6, there will be two of them who will be eliminated and after the elimination of the two; the Final 4 will be revealed. The Final 4 will be battling with each other on the Final Judgment. People will choose who they want to win the competition by text voting. 30% of the result will come from the text votes and the remaining 70% is from the StarStruck council.

Innovation: The Final 6 Survivors
This season was the first occurrence where a former eliminated contestant returned to the competition which was named "The Avengers Strike's Back". CJ Muere was eliminated on December 24, 2004. But because of the Strike Back, Benj Pacia was later replaced by him and returned to the contest through a major twist wherein an Avenger (a losing contestant) will be given the chance to re-enter the contest by emerging with at least fourth-best in cumulative scores among the Survivor Six (LJ Reyes, Megan Young, Ryza Cenon, Benj Pacia, Kirby de Jesus and Mike Tan). CJ Muere emerged in the Final 4, and was reinstated while Benj Pacia was eliminated.
Some viewers did not like this twist for it undermined the rules and regulations of the show. Although, the fans of CJ Muere welcomed his return to the competition and proved to be worthy to be part of the elite Final Four. CJ Muere also got the highest Jollibee votes, thus he starred in a Jollibee commercial.
