Fans of Fox hit ‘Empire’ have ample cause to celebrate today.
For, the network have just announced the Lee Daniels music drama has been renewed for the 2017/2018 TV season.
Confirmation of the show’s early re-up was revealed at the Television Critics Association winter press tour today.
Mirroring prior instalments, season 4 of the series will be comprised of 18 episodes and is expected to premiere in September. [Source]
While ratings for the show’s current third season have struggled to reach the high’s of earlier outings, ‘Empire’ has proven to be a consistent performer for FOX. What’s more, with it remaining the top drama (on all networks) in its Wednesday primetime slot, its renewal seemed more “when” than “if.”
Currently in the midst of a mid-season hiatus until March, its spot is being warmed by another music drama – ‘STAR’ – which is also a Lee Daniels production.
