Taraji P. Henson to Play Cookie Again in 'Empire' Spin-off Series!

Cookie Lyon might be returning to your TV screens in the future!

Taraji P. Henson is set to reprise her iconic role in an Empire spin-off series that is currently in the works at Fox. This marks the first project to come out of the Oscar-nominated actress’ first-look deal with the network.

Empire co-creator Danny Strong will co-write the series with Yolanda Lawrence and Stacy A. Littlejohn, who also worked on the hit show. They will all serve as co-showrunners.

Not much is known about the spin-off series’ plot, but THR reports that it will “follow Cookie as she moves to L.A. and potentially feature some of her other family members.”

Things didn’t end as planned on Empire when the series came to an early conclusion back in April 2020 due to the pandemic. The spin-off series will give the creators a chance to wrap things up properly.

'Outmatched' Cancelled by Fox After One Season

Outmatched will not be coming back for another season.

Fox has announced they will not be renewing the comedy starring Jason Biggs and Maggie Lawson for a second season, Deadline reports.

The move to cancel doesn’t come that much as a surprise since the show didn’t do well ratings-wise. Outmatched was the only new live-action comedy by Fox this season.

Outmatched followed a blue-collar couple in Atlantic City trying to raise their four kids – three of whom happen to be certified geniuses.

Fox Reveals Fall 2020 Schedule & These 4 Shows Still Could Be Cancelled

Fox has revealed the fall 2020 television schedule, and the Coronavirus pandemic is sending some ripples through the autumn’s airwaves.

“The effects of this global health crisis leave no business unaffected,” Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, said about creating the schedule. “As a media company that prides itself on an entrepreneurial spirit and the focus that comes with doing fewer things better, we mobilized, swiftly creating an entirely new, original-programming lineup for the fall to share with our partners this upfront. In remote meetings with advertising and marketing partners over recent weeks, we sought to listen first and understand each partner’s unique concerns. Our primary goal is to help them back to business, so in turn, the message we’ve shared is one of relative stability on Fox, combining the best of primetime sports and entertainment with which to help our partners and their customers back to market.”

Still, Fox has not decided on the fates of several shows including Last Man Standing, Prodigal Son, Outmatched, and The Resident.

Dramas Almost Family and Deputy were both previously canceled.

'Empire' Creators Confirm Early Finale Due to Pandemic & Hope to Have a Proper Ending Someday

Empire‘s next episode will also be its finale for the foreseeable future.

The long-running show’s 18th episode of its final sixth season due to air next week will be its last for now, creators confirmed on Tuesday (April 14).

Lee Daniels and Danny Strong issued statements about the sudden ending of the show.

“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. 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 in television? Stay tuned! To the Empire!” Lee said, via Deadline.

“We’re so proud of this show and of 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. 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!” said Danny Strong.

Taraji previously spoke about how shooting was cut short for the series.

'Empire's Final Season Is Set To End Early Due To Crisis

Empire is coming to an end sooner than expected.

The sixth and final season of the hit Fox series will end sooner than originally planned due to the ongoing world health crisis.

Fox announced late Tuesday night (March 31) in an on-air promo that the show’s 20-episode sixth and final season will now conclude on April 21, with Episode 18 now serving as the show’s series finale, according to Deadline.

“Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of Empire,” a voice-over declared over a promo for next week’s “We Got Us,” the 16th episode of the current sixth season, starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard.

The last completed episode before the production shutdown, Episode 18, which is scheduled to air on April 21, is now set to be the premature end of Empire. “To help create a more seamless overall ending, we hear this newly minted finale will likely feature footage from Episode 19, which was halfway through filming when the health crisis paused all Hollywood production.”
