Triumphantly returning to FOX tonight for its second season, EMPIRE pulls no punches in getting things moving. From the opening scenes of Cookie’s gigantic musical rally (keep an eye out for celebrity cameos) to Lucious’ many ‘issues’ while still in prison for Bunky’s murder, this delicious dynastic drama somehow manages to be even more stylish and fast-paced than last season. Despite the huge popularity and growth from season one, EMPIRE continues to hold on to everything that the audience originally fell for.
Created by LEE DANIELS, the huge cast includes TERRENCE HOWARD, TARAJI P. HENSON, TRAI BYERS, JUSSIE SMOLLETT and BRYSHERE Y. GRAY as well as several well-known cameo surprises.
When we sat down with TERRENCE HOWARD and TARAJI P. HENSON last season, they were quick to tell us what to expect. After seeing part of season two, that response is just as applicable now as it was then:
EMPIRE airs Wednesday nights on FOX.
