US music melodrama Empire has been renewed for a fourth season, comprising 18 episodes.
In its third season, it has been America’s top broadcast drama among adults 18-49 — as it has been through its entire run. Though its ratings dipped this year, Empire still finished out the first half of its third season with nearly 8 million viewers for the midseason finale.
But despite its stellar US ratings and numerous Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, the series has failed to fire in Australia.
TEN is yet to announce if it will screen the third season, which debuted in the US in September.
