EMPIRE season 2 premieres SEP 23 at 9/8c on FOX! I just love this show, didn't think I would, but I do. The music is great and the acting is fantastically over the top. Fun entertainment in a very serious world these days....
Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), a former drug dealer now turned hip hop mogul and CEO of Empire Entertainment, learns he has ALS. His life begins to cave in around him after his past sins come back to haunt him following his diagnosis.
Lucious, looking to groom one of his three sons Andre Lyon (Trai Byers), Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett), and Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray) to take over the family business, pits them against each other.
Empire also stars Taraji P. Henson as Lucious' ex-wife Cookie Lyon, the mother of his three sons who somehow is released from prison.
