Indie Wire is reporting that Fox’s mega-hit series, “Empire” has been renewed for a second season after just two episodes. Last Wednesday’s show ratings registered at 10.3 million viewers which is up from the season debut numbers of 9.9 million viewers.

The series is also looking to add a little more star power to its cast. Just recently it was announced that Snoop Dogg would appear in an episode between February and March. Now it looks like Daniels is bringing on multiple Grammy winner, Patti LaBelle as well.  He recently posted a photo of him with the music icon on his Instagram page with the following caption:

“theoriginalbigdaddy We fixin to turn up to watch #empire #fox #pattitakedownyourtree”

Also joining in as guest directors are Debbie Allen and Mario Van Peebles.

Congrats to the cast of the show and looking forward to this week’s episode.
