Empire Season 5 comes to an end on May 8, 2019. However, it was evident that there would be a next season. The current, 5th season premiere has garnered over six million viewers (6.09) with a 1.9/9 key demo/share among adults 18-49. Though Empire has lost about 13.62% of its target audience, the ratings were pretty favorable. No doubt, such statistics are enough for the FOX's management in order to make a decision on renewal.
Nonetheless, also worth mentioning that the reviews from the viewers were quite ambivalent as for Empire Season 5. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current season holds a score of 2.6/5 and only 41% approval rating among the viewers. However, most of the critics were apparently satisfied with Empire Season 5. On Metacritic, the fifth installment of the musical soap opera has a rating of 1.4/10, which looks quite negative.
No matter what, Empire remains one of the top performers on FOX, and no doubt the show deserves Season 6. We are looking forward to the official announcement from FOX on the subject. The waiting won't last so long, we suppose.
Empire Season 6 Release Date
When should we expect the upcoming premiere in the case of renewal? The answer, in fact, is pretty simple. All previous season of the show Empire have been released in September, unless Season 1, which premiered in January. Therefore, Empire Season 6 Release Date is more likely scheduled for September 21-27, 2019.
Of course, first of all, we will have to learn the exact data concerning the renewal. Well, we are tracking down the official sources in order you to be the one who learned the first when Empire is renewed for Season 6, as well as when its premiere date is officially confirmed. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
The storyline centers around a successful entrepreneur Lucious Lyon, the one, who controls a well-known hip-hop label, Empire Entertainment. In the past, Lucious was a drug dealer, who nonetheless opted to cut the roots of his past. Lucious thereby managed to escape such a dirty business, and as a result climb onto the hip-hop musical Olympus, as a respectable hip-hop mogul. Yet Lucious has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the illness, which put at a risk the entire empire.
When the business and family is on fire, Lucious has no other idea than entrust the control upon his empire to the only one of his three sons. However, his ex-wife doesn't want to remain out of pie with no penny. She claims her right to Empire Entertainment as well. Cookie desires to dethrone Lucious, and thereby take everything under her own control. For five seasons the battle for the reins and control upon Empire Entertainment is continuing, and it seems that no one is going to retreat.
The show premiered on FOX on January 7, 2015, and has shortly become the international television hit.
