It's almost been too long since we've seen Cookie's fabulous furs or absorbed the result of a Lyon Family Musical Showdown. Empire, season 2, is on its way back to our beloved television screens this September.
Fans of Empire were left craving more after the season finale. Lee Daniels introduced us to the world of Cookie and Lucious Lyon last winter, and audiences were hooked immediately. Empire's ratings increased weekly, shattering records, and continued to be a hot topic of discussions in living rooms everywhere. The trailer for the highly-anticipated second season did not disappoint.
"New Music. New Money. New Power." These are the words that flash between scenes that show the return of our favorites. Cookie and Andre look fierce and powerful as they walk through the halls of Empire Records. Boo Boo Kitty and Hakeem size one another up, which alludes to a continuing drama between the two. Jamal is seen looking up to no good, which is a direction he was headed toward last season. And the man we all love to hate, Lucious, appears in an unsurprisingly fitting orange jumpsuit.
Lucious is in jail, but he doesn't seem distraught. He looks simultaneously smug and menacing as Cookie visits him. The drama is brewing and ready to take over our Wednesday nights again.

Empire returns to Fox on September 23rd.
