Mark your calendars now!
Season 2 of “Empire” returns on Wednesday, September 23rd at 9 p.m.EST. The show’s star, Taraji P. Henson aka Cookie Lyons, tweeted the news yesterday morning after a fan asked about it. Her response was, “Hello. September 23 #Empire Season.”
In March, I had the pleasure of meeting cast members Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Y. Gray aka Yazz, where they indicated that the show was returning sometime in September but didn’t give a specific date. We also know that the show will return with 18 episodes as opposed to 12 and will feature new music from Ne-Yo and Timbaland.
