It may not be drawing the audience it once was, but “Empire” is still one of the top-rated dramas on television and a leading performer for FOX.

It should therefore come as no surprise that the show will be back for the 2018-19 television season.

In a Wednesday statement, FOX confirmed that it has renewed “Empire” for a fifth season.

“Empire is as compelling, emotional and unpredictable as it ever was,” said FOX’s Michael Thorn. “We are so proud of our amazing cast, led by Terrence and Taraji, who deliver powerful performances week after week. We’d also like to thank our tremendous creative team – Lee, Danny, Brett, Ilene, Sanaa, Brian and Francie – whose inspired storytelling continues to create the unforgettable, jaw-dropping OMG moments that have always been signature to EMPIRE.”

The fourth season continues with a new episode Wednesday night at 8PM ET/PT.
