TV Insider Coverage of Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour 2016Fox has ordered more Empire and Scream Queens.

Scream Queens, which concluded its first season in December, will find itself in a new location for Season 2: a hospital, “where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.” Casting for the second season is still TBD.

Meanwhile, Empire‘s nod for Season 3 comes as the show is in the middle of its second season. Fox hasn’t announced an episode count for it, though Season 2’s order was for 18. The second half of Season 2 returns on March 30.
