So to that rumor that surfaced about the soap opera [Empire] Dismissed from [FOX], welp Durttyzzz executives announced on Monday (May 11) that Season 2 of "Empire" is on, 18 episodes, short of a full network slate of 22, Seems a bit funny if you ask me, but there back is what matters. It's said to presumably return September with question of keeping them in a 9 p.m. Wednesday slot. Also bringing Neyo on as a song writer. We don't care if they moved it foward, if it fell back, or even stays were it's at, just as long as they bring it back. Many fans are awaiting a much anticipated season 2.
