Empire” has been renewed for a second season!

The folks over at FOX announced on Saturday that they have renewed their new ratings slayer, “Empire” for another season after only airing two episodes.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

Empire has become Fox’s breakout hit after only two episodes. The 20th Century Fox Television drama from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong has emerged as the No. 1 new series of the season.

Following its second episode, it is the only new broadcast drama this season to grow from week one to week two. In live-plus-same-day returns, it tied ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder as the No. 1 new broadcast series premiere among adults 18-49.

Starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, the hip-hop Dynasty has more VOD viewing than any other Fox show this season, earning more than 1.1 million total viewers.

FOX has also renewed “Gotham” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

Congratulations to Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, and the entire cast and crew of “Empire.”
