‘Empire,’ Taraji tweet Season 2 return date

‘Empire’ Season 2 Premiere Date Released By Taraji P. Henson; Cookie Returns September 23.

Two months after “Empire” wrapped its rookie season, writers of the Fox drama on Friday announced via Twitter the date of the show’s return — Sept. 23. The soap became appointment viewing during the course of its 12-episode run and finished as the season’s No. 1 broadcast entertainment series in 18-49. So it should come as little surprise that Henson has beat Fox to the punch in cluing fans in on when we can find hitting the air again: September 23, 2015.

It grew nearly every week in the demo and finished with the highest average for any broadcast drama since ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2007-08, and the highest for any new drama since those shows bowed in the 2004-05 season. In total viewers, “Empire” grew with every single episode — rising from 9.9 million for its premiere and peaking with 17.6 million for its finale. Sure, those two fingers were meant to signify “Season 2,” but I also like to think that she’s sending Fox some deuces to let them know that things are peaceful as she unleashes this highly anticipated announcement. Fox announced at its upfront presentation earlier this month that guest stars on the second season of “Empire” will include Chris Rock, Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz. It’s absolutely undeniable that Empire was THE TV event of the season, as it was one of the only series in history that managed to steadily attract a bigger audience week after week without a single dip.

That said, we might get to find out when Season 2 hits this fall, as Fox did decide to up the ante on the soapy operatic tale of Lucious Lyon and his musical legacy. Season 2 is going to be a doozy, as we’ll get to see what comes of the Lyon family following the shocking finale. (No spoilers, don’t worry.) But the fictional narrative isn’t even the only highlight, as Empire already has a stellar lineup of guest stars ready.
