Are You Ready for Season 3 of Empire ?

The hit drama will be back in just a few months.

Fans of FOX's smash success Empire are in for a treat as the popular drama was just renewed for a third season.

Despite season two's ratings dive, the Taraji P. Henson-led series is still a bonafide hit, with FOX giving the Lee Daniels musical drama the green light. Fans learned of the news from the show's official Instagram account:

The news comes just a week after Henson won a Golden Globe for her role as Cookie Lyon on the show.

According to TV Line, though season two fared in competition to season one's massive debut, it currently ranks as broadcast TV's No. 1 show among the 18-49 demographic. It also constantly exceeds a weekly viewership of 20 million.

The new season of Empire premieres on Wednesday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. on FOX.
