New ‘Empire’ Season 2 Trailer Puts Lucious Lyon On Notice (VIDEO)
The new trailer for Empire Season 2 is here, and it’s full-scale chaos!
The feud is ongoing within the Lyon family: Andre (Trai Byers) wants to forcibly remove Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) as CEO of Empire, while Jamal (Jussie Smollett) tells Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) that he plans to bury his new album. In classic Hakeem style, he vows to be bigger than either Jamal or their father. Meanwhile, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is looking to reunite her family, despite their apparent resistance to her at every turn. However, Lucious Lyon has been put on notice, not just in the corporate world, but behind bars as well, as it appears he’s in for some harsh times in Season 2. Oh, and we also get our first look at Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei in her new role, a corporate type who declares, “Lucious Lyon IS Empire. Without him the company is nothing!” (Also, keep an eye out for a “blink and you’ll miss it” cameo from Chris Rock)
It’s an exciting trailer, and builds the hype for Season 2! Watch the video below:
Empire returns for Season 2 on September 23 on FOX.
