Is Empire On Tonight?

Fans of Empire should know that there will not be a new episode of Empire on tonight, Wednesday, October 25th. Unfortunately, it looks like Empire Season 4 will be taking a break this week. But, if you're really hyped up on what's happening in the next new episode, you can watch the trailer for Empire Season 4 Episode 5 below!

Why Is Empire Not On Tonight?

Fans everywhere are wondering why Empire isn't on tonight. Rather than playing Empire during its usual time slot, FOX aired the World Series.

When Is Empire Season 4 Episode 5 Airing?

If you're not into baseball, it's understandable if you just want your Empire fix! Although FOX's Empire website says that the new episode will air on November 1, 2017, at 9|8c, we aren't exactly sure when Empire will come back. If the World Series plays its full seven games, then the World Series Game 7 between the Dodgers and Astros will air on November 1 rather than Empire.

Update: Empire will return next Wednesday, November 8 at 8|7c followed by a new episode of STAR at 9|8c.

What Is Happening In Empire Season 4 Episode 5?

Here is everything that is happening on the Empire Season 4 episode titled "The Fool."

When the secret about Lucious' memory is exposed, Cookie attempts to convince the board that he is fine by inviting the press to watch him produce the first 20 for 20 album. Eddie Barker jumps in to help Lucious get back in his groove and make music. Just as Andre's feelings for Detective Pamela Rose intensify, she reveals information that's been uncovered regarding the explosion. Meanwhile, Hakeem worries about his involvement with the DuBois clan and Claudia helps Lucious with a breakthrough.

Will you be watching the World Series on FOX? Are you excited for Empire to return (possibly) next week?

Empire Season 4 returns to ABC (almost) every Wednesday at 9|8c!
