Fox Eyes Empire, Star Crossover for Fall

Narratively speaking, this should be easier to pull off than the creatively complex Bones/Sleepy Hollow mashup: Fox is mulling a crossover between Lee Daniels’ musical-themed dramas Empire and Star, TVLine has learned exclusively. 

A Fox spokesperson declined to comment, but sources confirm that the network — which is pairing the shows on Wednesdays this fall — is in talks to temporarily merge the universes of both series as part of a one-night premiere event on Sept. 27 (which is when Empire and Star are slated to kick off their respective fourth and second seasons).

Details on the potential (and, let’s face it, inevitable) crossover remain murky, but we’re going to go out on a limb and speculate that Fox would not pass up an opportunity to put Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie and Queen Latifah’s Carlotta in the same room together.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Already knew this from the point they paired them together this fall

    I thought the universes were already merged when they showed that short clip of Lenny Kravitz telling Lucious to stay away from his daughter.

  3. N says:

    Awesome I wonder if star and cookie would get into it. Hakeem would probably flirt with all 3 of them.

    There you go FOX a cross over that makes sense unlike Sleepy/ Bones which took an episode away from both shows that could have been better spent. This makes sense and it might be more beneficial for both shows.

    All these years later, I’m still kinda hurt that we never got a Bones/House crossover.

  7. Summer says:

    Taraji P Henson and Queen Latifah? Together? Yes. All the yes.

  8. Brian says:

    Smart move.

  9. Kate says:

    I thought that they were going to take place in the same universe until Naomi Campbell popped up as a different character on Star. I wonder if they’ll play the twin card?
