FOX Pulls The Plug On The Second Season Of Record-Breaking TV Show EMPIRE

share on:

Record smashing Fox’s TV show “Empire” has been cancelled.

The Lee Daniels produced series on January 17 was renewed for a second season but now Fox has rescinded.

Starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, the first season of the musical drama was a huge success.

It is said that the show is loosely based off hip hop mogul, Jay-Z’s life.

According to Fox’s public relations representative, Charles McRae, the show’s cancellation was due to contractual negotiations.

Fox says producers, Lee Daniels and Danny Strong’s production camp were the main determining factors in the cancellation.

It was also learnt that the network pulled the plug on the show for failure to film episodes of the show’s season two, which were scheduled to air September, 2015.

Lee Daniels is currently meeting with several networks to find a new home for the hit series.

He along with co-creator Danny Strong, will be meeting with HBO, Showtime, Viacom and ABC in the next few days.

 

How do you feel about FOX’s move? Good for business?

    1. More like too many people are too lazy do their own research, and realize that this article a total lie and garbage.

  1. If this is true, fox you guys had a HIT show on your hands that different races of people enjoyed and you go and cancel the show. I’m in disbelief.

  2. This is a typical move once things are going ok someone has to kick the kickstand to make things fall but I believe once u keep up the kickstand get on the bike and ride. On go some where else

  3. THATS FD UP I LOVE THIS SHOW….HOW IS THESE PPL SAYING ITS BASED ON THEIR LIVES…JAY Z DOES NOT HAVE A EX WIFE THAT DID 17 YRS FOR HIM AND DID DROPS FOR HIS FAME AND CAREER…NOR DOES HE HAVE THREE KIDS LET ALONE THREE KIDS THAT ARE GROWN….AND THE SAME GOES FOR DIDDY AND THIS OTHER CAT…YALL SOME GREEDY MFS…YOU GUYS JUST GOING TO DROP THE TOP SHOW WITH TOP RATINGS ON SOME BS….

  4. Fox always cancel shot black TVs series cause they are stupid an somebody always have to complain about someone stole there life story. I feel if that was your life story why didn’t you have the Ideal to come out an publish it. INSTEAD OF SEEING IT COME OUT AN WATCHING THE SHOW THEN SAYING AFTER IT’S A HIT SHOW. THEY STOLE MY LIFE STORY. MY BLACK PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK

  5. I am so disappointed!!! No matter which network picks it up, you can best believe I will be watching, recording, or whatever I have to do! I can’t believe that Fox made such a dumb move such as this, they know that Empire spike their ratings! Oh well, their lost.

  6. Not allowing this show is bad for business. If anything I believe it will have a lot if people pulling the race card. This show had people talking all week till the next episode. It kept people wanting more. LEAVE IT IS. EVERYONE DOES NOT HAVE THOSE PAID CHANNELS

  7. Too bad for them! Empire is a VERY SUCCESSFUL SHOW. I, myself am a huge fan!! I can’t get enough!! But whomever they go with next I hope they consider going with a channel that everyone of their fans can channel into. (Basic cable) I love you EMPIRE!! Keep up the great work, yall have support everywhere!!

  8. Honestly if this is all true fox was doing horrid when it comes to the amout of viewers and im sure their rating will plumit away now we all connected with the ahow facebook is redic with it as well i suggest showtime to but them out
    smh

  9. Yea hats messed up. FOX, yall is stupid and doing a bad thing for business. This show had ppl race home to watch it and made yall ratings go up. Not to mention the show had a variety of diff races enjoy watching the show. It is a Damn GOOD show and it looks like whom ever picks it up from u losers, is gonna b getting all the ratings and credit. Haha. U suck FOX I’m done watching ANYTHING on ur channels.

  10. I am mad, Iove this show, finally something good to watch than you cancel, how about cancelling all the other shows that are stupid, like bachelor, finding love thing it only worked out for a few people anyway

  11. I loved the empire I would get home and cook n be really to watch it but I think it is all a lie about who life story it is bc they would have made the show there self

  12. This is not true. Why do we always have to try and tear down things that are created by black artists and writers? What are you gaining by spreading this lie. It doesn’t even make a bit of sense. Every major website is talking about the new season, the writers went back to work last week, the actors are talking about the new season, and Fox just sent Lee Daniels and Taraji P. Henson to the UK and Paris to promote the show. None of this is private information, so why focus on spreading lies?

    I hate to be mean, but people need to use common sense. Empire is the highest rated show on broadcast television, so no, it was not cancelled.

  13. I Always felt that fox was a races channel. I was amazed that they let them do a first season… But empire have to come back

  14. Empire was an awesome show, its very disappointing to here that such a brilliantly done show will not be returning. Please do whatever it take to bring. It back to us

  15. Swear they stupid as hell HELLO IT WAS A HIT ASS CLOWNS DID U MISS UR OWN RATINGS???? OMG well who ever picks it up that’s were I will be following my empire were ever it may go. Idiots at fox want to save there channel for some sport bullshit f sports teams

  16. I don’t believe the hype..I only watched two episodes and Empire is a fly show with solid acting and production..strong shows can breed this kind of drama..

  17. I knew this was going to happen because fox is not a black channel they couldn’t handle the ratings. Now Empire go on to something of color Own, Bet don’t let the devil still happiness of Empire the out come of this is glory every Tuesday. People was in front of that tv
    black white watching this show directors , writers, producers keep fighting.
