Please see the details below. The show’s casting team is also accepting general submissions for upcoming episodes and will be filming in the Chicago area.  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 is beginning and if the new season schedule follows the previous season, then the show will be filming all the way into the winter months.
