Empire is one of FOX’s hit shows so it was a no brainer that the show would sign on for a third season especially after Taraji P. Henson snagged herself a Golden Globe for playing the role of Cookie Lyon.

Empire’s first season scored record breaking ratings, quickly becoming FOX’s highest rated show in years. Season two hasn’t been quite like season one since ratings have dropped but it is still the #1 series on broadcast television among adults 18-49.

I wonder what season three will bring. Comment below and tell us what you think.
