What do you think? Did you think the Empire TV show would be cancelled or renewed for season five? How many seasons do you expect this FOX TV series to run?
Way too much (in your face) gay scenes. Most Viewers are not comfortable with seeing that. Instead of cutting back oon those Gay making out scenes, Lee Daniels doubled down and tripled down on them. So, viewers fled. It’s just that simple.
Just heard the news. Please reconsider your decision to cancel, I love this show. There are not many shows to watch with all the reality shows on air. This show has substance along with excitement.
Therefore please rethink your decision.
I am very upset about the Jesse Smollett out come. I sincerely hope that he is not brought back. Average people who try to have integrity see things like this and the college acceptance scandal and feel the deck is stacked against them on all fronts. This also demeans people who need protected from “hate crimes” .
I really can’t watch this without Jussie I will have to let this one go love the mom and dad but Jussie is the key for me.
I thought it should never end.So much excitement in each episode.
Still waiting patiently for the return.
