After the Jessie Smollet (who plays gay singer-songwriter Jamal Lyon) controversy earlier in 2019, fans were worried that Empire would be cancelled. The good news is that it’s back for a sixth and final season, with Fox saying there may be spin-offs in the future.
Some of the questions we need to be answered in the final season: What will happen with Cookie and Lucious after they headed off in different directions in the Season 5 finale? Will Becky and Giselle’s new label be able to give Empire a run for its money? And will Hakeen ever win back the love of Tiana?
