Empire is taking a brief break. Deadline reports season four of the FOX TV show is going on a production hiatus for additional script work.
From Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, the hit music drama stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson as the turbulent heads of a hip hop and entertainment label. The cast also includes Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Y. Gray, Trai Byers, Grace Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, Ta’Rhonda Jones, Serayah, Xzibit, Rumer Willis, Andre Royo, and Terrell Carter.
According to Deadline, production will be halted on Empire for two or three weeks so the writers can work on the back half of season four. Fans need not worry, though. The production hiatus will not affect the broadcast schedule.
The FOX series is slated to air its mid-season finale in December and return with new episodes in March.
