Season 6

Empire is a drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop music. The show revolves around the Lyon family and their media company, Empire Entertainment.

The founder, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), is the king of hip-hop, but his company and reign are constantly threatened by his family, including his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson); his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere "Yazz" Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers); and a volatile and competitive music industry.

As the final season gets underway, Lucious - who is now a wanted fugitive - is on the run from the Feds.

Cookie keeps busy by focusing on her brand outside of Empire, which now includes a daytime talk show and a community centre.

Andre, currently sitting on the Empire throne, is confronted by several people who now want to get in on the company and Hakeem sets his sights on the lead role in the first Empire movie.

Meanwhile, Becky and Giselle search for their first Bossy Media artist.

Season 6 stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, Trai Byers as Andre Lyon, Bryshere 'Yazz' Gray as Hakeem Lyon, Serayah McNeill as Tiana, Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porsha, Wood Harris as Damon, Meta Golding as Teri, Katlynn Simone as Treasure, Rhyon Nicole Brown as Maya, Nicole Ari Parker as Giselle Sims-Barker, A.Z. Kelsey as Jeff Kingsley, Vivica A. Fox as Candace and Mario as Devon.

Empire is from Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong.

The series is executive-produced by Daniels, Strong, Brian Grazer, Ilene Chaiken (The L Word), Sanaa Hamri (Shameless, Nashville) and Francie Calfo (Those Who Kill, Gang Related).
