TV fans are eagerly waiting for the return of their favorite show, Empire. But what date will the new season premiere? And more importantly, when can we expect new episodes of Empire Season 7?

2. Is Empire Cancelled? Is there a Season 7 of Empire Coming?
Empire Season 6 ended abruptly due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which halted the next Empire season. Production was shut down midway through the season, and the remaining episodes were never completed. As a result, the sixth season is incomplete and ends with a cliffhanger. While it’s unclear when or if production will resume, fans can still enjoy what has been published this far. Season 6 is available to stream on Hulu and Hotstar. And no, there won’t be the next season of Empire or season 7 of Empire. The show was canceled in 2019.
3. Why was the Empire Season 7 Cancelled?
It’s been reported that the reason for Empire’s cancellation is due to the coronavirus pandemic. One insider source says that Fox shelved the show a few days after suspending the production. Filming was taking place in a city that has become one of the US hotspots for coronavirus cases. As more and more people in the city tested positive for the virus, it became clear that it would be too risky to continue filming. (See Why Did Dean Martin And Jerry Lewis Break Up?)
