The adventures of the Lyon family will soon come to an end since Fox decided to cancel their hit show Empire. The network renewed this series for Season 6 a few weeks ago but recently announced that this will be the end of the line.

Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, recently broke the news but sounded positive about the future. He promised an “epic” conclusion to this story, filled with “shocking surprises and jaw-dropping moments” that fans deserve.

“We’re excited to see the show go out with a bang and that’s really what we’ve been focused on and what’s been great with all these early season conversations. Lee Daniels and all the writers are really just focused on giving the crescendo it deserves,” said Collier during a press call.

Since its premiere in 2015, Empire received generally positive reviews and nominations for numerous prestigious accolades. Taraji P. Henson received critical acclaim for her portrayal of the family matriarch Cookie Lyon and ended up winning a Golden Globe for her performance.
