Tory Ash is immersing herself in the world of Empire for the foreseeable future. 

According to TV Line, Rumer Willis has been upped to a series regular ahead of Empire Season 4, which debuts Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.

Willis first appeared during Empire Season 3 and her character did a mountain of scheming that would make the Lyons proud to welcome her back with open arms. 

Through her four-episode original stint, Tory Ash burned bridges as quickly as she built them, and proved she was only looking to advance her career. 

When Tory was first introduced, she was a confidante for Jamal as he dealt with the aftermath of his drug taking as he tried to complete a stint in rehab.

She seemed genuinely concerned about him, but then she pretty much cut him off in favor of singing for Lucious in the hopes of reviving her career. 

With her partying days behind her, how will she immerse herself back into the lives of the Lyons? 

Fun fact: Rumer's mother, Demi Moore is also appearing on the show throughout Empire Season 4.

If you watch Empire online, you will know that we got our first glimpse of her during Empire Season 3 Episode 18 in the aftermath of the dramatic explosion that found Lucious losing his memory. 

Moore plays the nurse who is looking after Lucious as he tries to carve a pathway to recovery as the family tries to keep the business afloat. 

The rule of thumb with Empire is that every single character has an ulterior motive, so we look forward to putting all the pieces together to find out what the heck is going on.
