Season 2

From Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels (Precious), Emmy Award winner Danny Strong (Game Change) and Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, 24), comes Empire, a drama about a family dynasty, set within a world of music, glamour, danger and power.

Season 2 picks up three months after the shocking arrest and incarceration of Empire Entertainment head Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).

Still in federal lockup, Lucious is trying to run Empire from inside, while a headline-grabbing state prosecutor hangs her political ambitions on bringing him down - no matter what it takes.

Meanwhile, Cookie stages a star-studded #FreeLucious concert in his support, while scheming with Andre, Hakeem, Anika and the business savvy Mimi Whiteman (guest star Marisa Tomei) to finalise the hostile takeover of Empire.

Season 2 stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon, Bryshere 'Yazz' Gray as Hakeem Lyon, Trai Byers as Andre Lyon, Grace Gealey as Anika Calhoun, Kaitlin Doubleday as Rhonda Lyon, Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porsha and Serayah McNeill as Tiana.

Empire is from Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong. The pilot is written by Daniels and Strong.

The series is executive produced by Daniels, Strong, Brian Grazer (24, Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), Ilene Chaiken (The L Word) and Francie Calfo (Those Who Kill, Gang Related).
