Following the surprising season finale, is there a possibility that we could see ‘Empire’ Season 7 soon? The creators seem to agree without eagerness and there are chances that ‘Empire’ may strike back next season to give fans some closure. Excited? So are we! Read ahead for the juicy details!
It’s official! The eighteenth scene of ‘Empire’s’ 6th season, which aired on April 21, was the show’s finale (at least for the foreseeable future) and conceivably a proper series finale!
- Was the show meant to end like that?
- What do the creators have to say about this?
Viewers seem to be vigorously taken aback because of this and want more. What do you think is going to be the fate of ‘Empire’? Well, let’s find out.
Was the show meant to end like that?
Let’s start by stating that the series was not supposed to end like this. The initial plan suggested that the show would have two more episodes to cover up the remaining drama.
However, the pandemic situation made the creators of the show trim down it to what we presently have. This implies that the show never got an opportunity to film the last two episodes that they had planned.
With this mess, and what happened with Jussie Smollett in the last season, this is definitely a series that has experienced hardships … a ton of hardships.
So, on account of this sudden closure of the series, there is a possibility that we could see another part of the show later on and, if we are lucky, it may even be a new season.
What do the creators have to say about this?
Given the sudden ending, co-creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong released separate statements late Tuesday. Before ‘Empire’s’ penultimate episode, they suggested that a genuine finale will come around after the COVID-19 emergency is over. The premature end of the series may not be the end of the ‘Empire’ franchise.
Lee Daniels suggested the same in his statement when he said, “The success of ‘Empire’ and bringing the Lyon family to broadcast television will always be one of the proudest achievements of my career. This show is the definition of breaking barriers. Thank you to our incredible cast, especially Terrence and Taraji, along with our amazing writers and tireless crew, for all of their hard work and bringing this story to life”.
He further added, “I think there’s more to do with these characters, and I’m heartbroken we aren’t getting to shoot the finale we wanted—at least, not yet. But you know what they say on television? Stay tuned! To the ‘Empire’!”
Danny Strong further clarified on this matter by saying, “We’re so proud of this show and everything this incredible cast – led by Taraji and Terrence – and crew accomplished over six seasons. The episode airing on April 21 was never meant to be the series finale, but due to current events it will likely be the last one our fans will see for a while”.
He also added, “We had an ending for the series planned that we all loved, and, hopefully, someday we’ll be able to film it and give the series its proper conclusion. But we hope everyone tunes in to our last original episode because the work done by our cast and crew deserves to be seen by the widest audience possible. Big thank you to Fox for being our home for these many years. And here’s hoping this isn’t the end!”
It seems pretty clear that the creators are still up and onwards with their work on the series and we would see a season finale. Who knows what is in store for the fans? We might even get to see an entirely new season!
