The rumor mill is churning and this time the word on street is going viral! Information has been leaking that Fox’s hit new series Empire is already getting a spin off! Yep, you heard right–a spin off! This should not come as a surprise as Fox ordered a full season of the show after its premiere episode and renewed it for a second season after its second episode aired. Why? Extraordinary rating! In fact Empire has increased its viewership with every passing episode, building the same frenzy and cult following of shows like Scandal, The Haves & The Have Nots, and How To Get Away With Murder (Is it a coincidence they all have Black female leads?)
Rumor has it that Empire star, V Bozeman will be starring in the new, as of yet untitled spin off series. As you recall from the pilot episode her character, “Veronica,” lost her brother. The show centers around her becoming a huge star in Empire Entertainment and using her fame and fortune to find her brother’s killer. Recently in interviews with HeyMikeyATL and Kontrol Magazine, V dispelled the rumors. “Is that what you heard? Hmmm…well I haven’t heard anything like that but I receive it! I can tell you that you’ll see more of Veronica this season on the show [Empire] and next season too! Stay tuned!” Despite Ms. Bozeman’s rumor control this story just keeps growing. We definitely hope these rumors ring true. At this point you can never have too much Empire and V Bozeman is one helluva actress and singer! We will keep you posted!
