I called this week’s ago but now it has been confirmed that Fox’s hit drama, “Empire” will end after season 6!
They will have you to think it was due in part to the Smollett situation..but let’s be honest.. ‘Empire’s ratings have been on the down swing well before that debacle. But this is the Spin from the network:
Season 6 promises to be filled with drama, shocking surprises and more jaw-dropping moments,” Fox said in a statement on Monday, May 13. “The award-winning drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop music has generated chart-topping hits, and socially relevant story lines, introduced ‘Boo Boo Kitty’ into the zeitgeist and delivered over-the-top OMG moments weekly.”
The statement continued: “Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious (Terrence Howard), the two larger-than-life characters at the center of the series, have taken viewers through the highs and lows that come with fame and fortune. As the series enters its final season, one thing is for sure, the Lyons never go out without a bang.”
I loved Empire from the beginning. Even when the writing got stale.. I remained a fan to this day. It will be interesting to see how the drama will wrap…but with no plans for “Jamal Lyons” to return for the final season.. Empire may go out like a wimped and not a roar!
