Empire Renewed For Season 3

Published: Friday 15th Jan 2016 by Sam

Despite a dip in ratings, the world still has ‘Empire’ fever. As such, FOX have obliged the masses by renewing the Lee Daniels music drama for a third season.

Details after the jump…

Additional information was not immediately made available, however confirmation came courtesy of the show’s official Instagram account, which moments ago posted:

Buckle up! #Empire has been renewed for a third season!

The news is timely; it comes on the heels of  lead Taraji P. Henson‘s win for her role of Cookie Lyon at the 2016 Golden Globes.

Also anchored by Terrance Howard and newcomers Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, and Bryshere Gray, the show (which debuted one year ago) tells the tale of a music dynasty and their focus on family amidst the theater of the showbiz.


Hopefully, the next season channels more of what made its initial run so captivating. Because aspects of the current season feel as if it’s being made up on an episode by episode basis.

    I never watched seasons 1&2, nor do I have any interest to watch it, but congrats I guess?
    Just would be nice to get a show that depicts minority’s in a strong and positive light versus over used stereotypes.

    Kuddos to them! Hopefully next season they focus more on the storyline rather than all the random guest stars. This season has been a bit underwhelming to be completely honest.

    this show is very poorly written and directed. it could definitely benefit from the staff that pens “how to get away with murder” or the production crew behind “american crime”. seriously…
