The Release Date
For US fans, Empire is confirmed to return to TV screens on 27th September 2017!
However UK fans can expect it to appear during Autumn 2017, with no release date confirmed.
Following the explosive cliff-hanger at the end of season 3, there is rumoured to be a “reset” of the plot.
Empire executive producer Ilene Chaiken told Deadline that following the the car explosion that almost killed Lucious in season 3, he is going to be dealing with “the aftermath of this event, the damage to his mind and his body. Whether or not his memory is permanently or just temporally impaired is certainly one of the questions we’d begin the new season with.”
This could provide a huge ripple effect for the rest of the family.
Empire Season 4 will air on US TV network Fox, however British fans can expect the new series to appear on 5Star, after it was moved from E4 after three seasons.
