The show is filming season 3 in the Chicago area and has released a new call for talent to work this week in the Chicago, Illinois area.

The show’s extras casting directors at Chicago’s 4 Star casting are seeking area locals who would like to work as paid background actors on the show. The show’s casting team is also accepting general submissions for upcoming episodes.

Lee Daniels’ edgy, hip hop music oriented drama is back.  “Empire” has returned to production in Chicago and is currently only interested in talent that is local to the Chicago area.

Production on the show began in early July 2016 and “Empire” will continue filming in the area through March of 2017.  The series stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe.   ”Empire” focuses on self made music mogul Lucious Lyon,  played by Terrence Howard, his music label, Empire Entertainment and the family drama over who gets to control the company.
