According to reports, Moore has secured a recurring role in “Empire” once the series returns next month.
Actress Demi Moore has signed onto the musical drama in her first-ever recurring TV role (at least, since she was on General Hospital for a season back in 1982). The Ghost and Indecent Proposal star will make her first appearance in the show’s current season finale, playing “a take-charge nurse with a mysterious past” who will become ever more entangled with the Lyon family next fall.

Last month, “Empire” received the green light for a fourth season renewal.
Empire was renewed for a fourth season by Fox, the network announced at the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour on Wednesday. In December, Empire’s fall finale, which aired an hour earlier at 8 p.m. to help launch co-creator Lee Daniels’ new show Star, garnered 7.57 million viewers. The decision to renew the musical drama was surely a no-brainer for Fox, as it’s TV’s no. 1 broadcast drama, a title its held for the last three seasons in the all-important adults 18-49 demo. (E!

A few months ago, “Empire” actress Serayah spoke to SOHH about how long she sees their show going.
“I definitely see “Empire” having a great run but ending on a good note. We started off as a pilot for a new show and the success that we all wanted and dreamt of forever, we all got to share that together. I feel like the end will come and be very great and everyone will be very happy with it and understand it. But I don’t see it being a “Law & Order” type of thing where it lasts that, that, that long. It will last just enough for our fans and our cast.” (SOHH)
