Empire Renewed for Season 3 at Fox

As Cookie would say, “Oh, and Anika, this is a no-brainer.”

Fox on Friday announced that it has renewed ratings juggernaut Empire for a third season.

Although down from its Season 1 highs, Empire remains a force to be reckoned with in the Nielsens; it ranks as broadcast TV’s No. 1 show in 18-49 and its cumulative weekly audience exceeds 20 million viewers.

The show resumes its current sophomore season on Wednesday, March 30 at 9/9c. Watch the midseason trailer here.
