Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Spinoff Series Not Moving Forward At Fox

Fox has announced that they are not moving forward with the planned Empire spinoff focused on Taraji P. Henson‘s character, Cookie.

Deadline reports that the series is going to be shopped to other networks like Hulu and ABC.

Announced in July, Fox had planned the series to center on Cookie Lyon, the wife of Terrence Howard‘s Lucious Lyon, and the mom of Andre, Jamal, and Hakeem Lyon.

The plot was pretty much unknown at the time of the announcement, but Fox did revealed that it might have followed “Cookie as she moves to L.A. and potentially feature some of her other family members.”

The flagship series, Empire, just wrapped up a six season run earlier this year and centered on Lucious, a hip-hop mogul who battles to choose a successor among his three sons who are battling for control over his multi-million dollar company.
