FOX’s Empire aired its final episode ever as the reign of Lyons ended after six seasons.
The episode was not-quite the finale showrunners had in mind as production was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.
The outbreak shortened production from 20 episodes to 18.
However, Lee Daniels and Danny Strong told CNN they left the door open for a possible TV movie that gives fans a definitive finish down the road.
Were you a fan of the series finale?
See what Twitter had to say about the wrap-up by peeping some of the best tweets we found:
The biggest slap in the face is going to be if anybody involved with this show doesn’t address that this wasn’t really the ending! If they keep acting like this is really the ending making it seem like it was oh so good and like it actually did what it was supposed to do!#Empire pic.twitter.com/3qPPto9Rwh

It takes Six Seasons for Lucious to truly be vulnerable and admit his undying, raw love for Cookie. No games, no strings attached, no trickery or backstabbing. Just true love! #Empire pic.twitter.com/nfyqDIM4O7

Disney+ Announces ‘Hawkeye’ Premiere Date
Hawkeye has a premiere date!
Disney+ has announced the premiere date on Wednesday, November 24. Jeremy Renner stars as Clint Barton, and his character will be introduced to a new young female archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) one of his biggest fans.
While the exact plot is unknown, it’s assumed that it will showcase the journey of Bishop’s training under Barton to become the new Hawkeye.
Bishop and Barton come from the Marvel Universe and were originally seen in the 2000s in Young Avengers comics.
Hawkeye is certainly not the first live-action MCU show for Disney+, the first was Wandavision, proceeded by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and its latest release Loki.
The series will have some big shoes to fill, as Loki managed to make it to number six on the Nielsen chart with 731 million minutes viewed, making it the best MCU release for Disney+.
MCU live-actions do very well on the streaming platform, as Wandavision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have both secured 28 Emmy nominations.
Netflix’s ‘Sweet Tooth’ Secures A Season 2
It’s official, Netflix’s original show Sweet Tooth is renewed for an 8-episode Season 2. Following its June 8th release, it secured a spot on Netflix’s top streaming shows with over 60M viewers.
The adaptation of the popular DC comic book series by Jeff Lemire follows the story of Gus, a part boy, part deer hybrid who is on the run for safety. After a worldwide pandemic broke out around the world, hybrids are being hunted and blamed for the outbreak.
He teams up with a motley group to find answers regarding the genesis of the disease as well as the origins of hybrids.
It stars new faces and new names, including Nonso Anozie, Aliza Vellani, Adeel Akhtar, and Stefania LaVie Owen. The hour-long episodes are more like mini-movies, with beautiful cinematography and it certainly speaks to the current state of the world.
While the release date is TBD, we can assume it won’t be coming out until next summer at the earliest.
