Empire renewed for season 5

The Lyons are still in business, baby!

FOX has renewed “Empire,” their hit music soap opera, created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, for a fifth season.

FBC Entertainment president Michael Thorn gushed about the series saying:

Empire’ is as compelling, emotional and unpredictable as it ever was.

We are so proud of our amazing cast, led by Terrence (Howard) and Taraji (P. Henson), who deliver powerful performances week after week.

We’d also like to thank our tremendous creative team – Lee, Danny, Brett, Ilene, Sanaa, Brian and Francie – whose inspired storytelling continues to create the unforgettable, jaw-dropping OMG moments that have always been signature to ‘Empire.’

Congrats to the cast and crew for locking down another one! (DJ Khaled voice)
