Next month, word will come down as to whether or not network television series are going to be renewed when ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and The CW officially announce their fall TV seasons. But the fate of Empire has already been revealed!
There’s good news for Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), Lucious (Terrence Howard), and the rest of the Empire gang! Fox has officially renewed the hit series Empire for a sixth season!
“Empire continues to break barriers with its emotionally powerful storytelling, and it remains a core part of the Fox legacy,” said Michael Thorn, President, Fox Entertainment in a statement.
“We want to thank everyone on the show – Taraji, Terrence, and the entire cast, as well as Lee, Danny, Brett, Sanaa, Brian, Francie, Dennis, and their teams – all of whom have done a tremendous job this season.
“We know there are so many more stories to tell, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for Season 6.”
There’s still Season 5 to finish up. Tomorrow night’s episode, titled My Fate Cries Out, deals with Cookie getting picked up by AUSA Conway (Alicia Coppola, ex-Lorna, Another World) while Lucious is visited by his past.
Meanwhile, Becky (Gabourey Sidibe), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray), and Andre (Trai Byers) devise a plan to save Empire by putting on a show with special guests Sevyn Streeter and Ty Dolla $ign.
Also, Andre helps Empire with an assist from the last person the Lyons expect, and Cookie may never forgive Lucious for what he’s done. All of this leads up to next week’s sensational finale!
Empire airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
