Winning! ‘Empire’ Renewed For 4th Season

Published: Wednesday 11th Jan 2017 by Sam

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.

Details below…

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.

Will you be tuning in for more Cookie and co?

    Great news! I have really enjoyed this 3rd season. Lee clearly learned his lesson about less being more. He has put the focus back of the main characters (which were the winning formula the show to begin with).

    I love tariji but this Empire has collapsed, it had only one good season and since then it has been a wreck.

        To think Waka Waka sold 10 million digital sales and loca five bit among the top 100 selling singles of all time. Yet these ghetto hoodrats want to come for shakers.

    This show needs to go. It became too predictable and corny!

    Empire is poorly written, terribly directed and focuses on rapid storylines that do nothing to fully engage the audience. The show is overall HORRIBLE and only still on air because of limited options on Wednesday nights for the black viewing audience.

    Despite Lee Daniels’ uneducated & ignorant comments to black actors, congrats still to the “Empire’ cast.

  11. Jay Jay January 11, 2017

    Not surprised, the show is still popular however it lost its spark. I only watch this to support Taraji.

  12. oopsUPsideDaHead January 11, 2017

    These characters are tired.
    Taraji is the only reason I watch.
    Jussie and his vocal deficiency
    Terrance …. u know
