Season 5

Empire is a drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop music. The show revolves around the Lyon family and their media company, Empire Entertainment.

The founder, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), is the king of hip-hop, but his company and reign are constantly threatened by his family, including his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson); his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere "Yazz" Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers); and a volatile and competitive music industry.

As Season 5 gets underway, two years after losing Empire to Eddie Barker (guest star Forest Whitaker), Cookie and Lucious are still in the midst of picking up the pieces.

The family is now completely dispersed and coping in their own ways after experiencing unimaginable tragedies.

Meanwhile, in an effort to reclaim the Lyons' position in the music industry, Cookie sets her eyes on a talented new singer and rapper, Treasure (guest star Kaitlynn Simone), in the all-new "Steal From The Thief".

Season 5 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, Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Serayah McNeill as Tiana, Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porsha, Andre Royo as Thurston "Thirsty" Rawlings, Nicole Ari Parker as Giselle Sims-Barker, Chet Hanks as Blake Sterling, Rhyon Nicole Brown as Maya and A.Z. Kelsey as Jeff Kingsley.

Empire is from Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong. The series is executive-produced by Daniels, Strong, Brian Grazer, Ilene Chaiken (The L Word), Sanaa Hamri (Shameless, Nashville) and Francie Calfo (Those Who Kill, Gang Related).
