Fox Sets ‘Empire’ Return Date, Shares New Teaser Featuring Axe-Wielding Demi Moore (Video)

Musical drama and companion series ”Star“ to premiere March 28

Fox has finally revealed the midseason premiere dates for “Empire” and “Star.”

Both Lee Daniels musical dramas will return from hiatus on March 28, the network announced on Wednesday.

Fox also shared a new teaser for “Empire,” giving a first look at the fate of Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon as he’s being held captive by an axe-wielding Demi Moore. “I will slit her throat,” Moore menaces in the clip, presumably talking about Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie.

“Empire” is coming off of a production hiatus last fall, which lasted for a few weeks to allow the writers to regroup before beginning on the season’s final nine episodes.

Co-creators and executive producers Danny Strong and Lee Daniels, as well as executive producers Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo were brought in to assist the show’s writing staff and guide the back-half of the season.
