FOX’s Empire may not be the same cultural force in Season 2 as its breakout first year, but Taraji P. Henson’s recent Golden Globe win certainly isn’t going to waste. The Lyon family will be back to squabbling in Season 3, as FOX confirms an official renewal for fall 2016.
We’ve seen Jimmy Fallon take on the likes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and House of Cards, but with Empire Season 2 drip-dropping its FOX premiere tomorrow night, Fallon was bound to take the throne.

True to form, FOX’s Empire has been living large on the road to its September Season 2 premiere, dropping trailer after trailer, and the occasional 20-minute preview. What better way to keep the Empire in power, than to add four more new trailers, as well as our first HD photos of the Season 2 opener?
Not fit to stay contained by its original twelve-episode order, FOX’s Empire will only grow bigger in Season 2, upping the ante to a full 18 hours, but why stop there? Even the previews have started their own Empire, as FOX devotes a full 20 minutes to previewing the Lyons’ second run.
Empire Season 2 proved surprisingly generous in debuting its first trailer early, but it’s gloves off, claws out by the first full promo. Get an eyeful of Lucious’ downfall, guest stars the likes of Marisa Tomei, Chris Rock and more by the newest trailer, plus … is a spinoff in the works?
Forget the Emmy snubs, FOX’s Empire just won the fall. We won’t have to wait until September for a fresh look at the Lyons’ latest drama, as FOX has officially dropped the first Empire Season 2 trailer online, chock full of money, power, and some serious Orange.
The smash success of FOX’s Empire across only one season assured that the network would get the ball rolling early on its sophomore effort, and months ahead of their premiere, the Lyon family is already back in the spotlight. Mind your puns, and watch the Lyons enter the lions’ den, by the first Empire Season 2 poster. No lyin’.
Round and round, the Empire Season 2 wheel of casting rolls out more and more big names, and after Marisa Tomei, another name has signed on in a surprising role. Singer and Destiny’s Child survivor Kelly Rowland will appear in a significant Empire Season 2 role, playing matriarch to none other than Lucious Lyon himself.
FOX’s M. Night Shyamalan-driven Wayward Pines hasn’t quite captured audiences everywhere (the Shyamalan name hardly commands intrigue these days), though upticks in DVR viewing and moderate ratings may well pave the way to a second season. That said, will star-studded cast the likes of Matt Dillion, Carla Gugino, Terrence Howard or Melissa Leo return?
FOX’s Empire proved an unexpected juggernaut across its first season, but did you know the Lee Daniels drama bucked every trend by its climbing ratings? Or that we almost had Wesley Snipes and Mo’Nique instead of Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson?
