Cookie Lyon is back to get what's hers. Rejoice, "Empire" fans! We have your first look at season 2.
The 30-second clip teases new power dynamics (Cookie and Andre!), new money, new music (!!) and most importantly, more Taraji P. Henson. Oh, and Cookie and Boo Boo Kitty are apparently still working together to take down Jamal, and honestly, we're not quite sure how we feel about it.
When we last saw the Lyons, they were pretty much falling apart. With Lucious behind bars, Empire Entertainment's new boss Jamal is now at odds with his entire family, as Cookie, Andre, Hakeem and Anika are fighting for control over the board. The situation isn't ideal for fans of Jussie Smollett's Jamal, but what would "Empire" be without a little drama?
Jamal doesn't look too worried, though, seeing as in the teaser, he's playing in front of a massive crowd. Does this mean Jamal is focusing on music now? And what is Cookie doing onstage with a mic in her hand?! We need to see Cookie dominate the stage ASAP. You know, when she's not busy visiting Lucious in prison. (We're sure that conversation is going to go really well.)
Fox's hit sensation "Empire" will return in the fall with 18 episodes and a slew of new guest stars, including Kelly Rowland, Chris Rock and Marisa Tomei.
