EMPIRE returns! In Season Four, all members of the Lyon family have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties. Academy Award- and Golden Globe-winning actor, director and producer Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland," "Arrival," "Lee Daniels' The Butler") will guest-star in a multi-episode arc. Whitaker will play "Uncle Eddie," a charismatic music icon and bonafide hitmaker, who gave an unknown Lucious (Terrence Howard) his first radio airplay. Decades later, Eddie steps up for Lucious at a critical moment during his rehabilitation, and a grateful Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) invites him to produce a song in celebration of Empire Entertainment's 20th anniversary.
The new season began airing last Wednesday on the Fox network, and now Amazon.com has ALREADY begun accepting pre-orders for Empire - The Complete 4th Season
. This listing is prior to the official Fox Home Entertainment announcement for the item, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Pricing is available, however, at $29.95 SRP. There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, but there is early box art (seen below; this may not be finalized yet, and could be subject to change). Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you further on this title just as soon as we find out more!
