Fox is looking to develop a spinoff to Empire. Previous attempts had the company exploring a prequel, but they ultimately decided to present that through flashbacks on the series. 20th Century Fox chairwoman Dana Walden confirmed that there have been conversations “for a full year about a potential spinoff, but no one has written it yet. Ultimately I think if something comes organically out of the show, we’d pursue it. We don’t want to force it on the show because if it doesn’t feel organic it will feel like it will be just a distraction from the flagship. We really believe in the show, we want it to live for a very long time and at a certain point, after one-two seasons, the creators felt that the flagship was the priority and we support that.”
