DEADLINE: And where are things with this Empire spinoff that Lee (Daniels) recently confirmed at TCA was in talks at Fox?
STRONG: It’s still early going, but it’s definitely in the mix. You know, they had talked to us about doing it at the beginning of Season 2. Lee and I were very uncomfortable with it, at that point. We’re like, “We’re just starting Season 2, and we’re talking about a spinoff? Let’s just keep the show going for a while and focus on this show.” I think going into Season 4, where we are now, it doesn’t feel wrong at all.

Will the proposed spinoff be ready to air during the Empire Season 5 hiatus, renewal permitting? Stay tuned…
