FOX has announced that Empire will come to an end after the next season.
The once very popular series wrapped up its 5th season last week by letting fans know that it would be back for a 6th season, but now that will be its last.
“We’re turning the final season of Empire into a large television event. If you look at what we’re doing with Empire…we really are trying to go out guns a-blazing,” Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier said to Entertainment Tonight). “One of the great benefits of announcing a final season is to allow the fans to lean in and to have the ending they deserve, and that’s everything we’re trying to do with this iconic series. Six years is a pretty remarkable run for a drama series and we feel good about it.”
The final season of Empire will premiere this fall.
