With only few months left before the official premiere of the much awaited Empire Season 3, the show is slowly revealing some surprises and material for the season. Just recently, the TV series unveiled its official third installment poster that showcases the embattled couple Lucious and Cookie Lyon.
In a photo released by Entertainment Weekly, it can be seen that Cookie is sporting a black and gold dress and standing beside Lucious, who is wearing a black suit. Cookie is portrayed by Taraji Henson, while Lucious is played by Terrence Howard.
It also appears that all is well between the two, contradicting how the previous season ended. It must be remembered that during the finale of Empire Season 2, Lucious forcibly married Anika, played by Grace Gealey. This is to prevent her from pinning him down. However, this event caused Cookie to leave the ceremony early.
Meanwhile, cast list of the show is still expanding as another character is set to play a role in the musical drama TV series. Sierra McClain was revealed to be joining the cast members of Empire Season 3. McClain is set to portray the role of Nessa, who is a laid-back girl.
She will find herself in Empire after Lucious perceives her as something different despite her timid personality. It is expected that Nessa will be a real unique girl. Reports revealed that her vocal prowess can already be lined to the powerhouse performers of Empire. The entrance of Nessa in the show is also foreseen to cause some rifts between Shyne and Lucious.
Another performer to be part of the series is French Montana. He will be playing the role of Vaughn who happens to be Lucious? loyal and dependable employee. However, rumor has it that Vaughn has a different plan on working with Lucious. He is being speculated to be targeting the same success the show?s lead character has had in the music industry.
The third season of the series seems to highlight more of Lucious? life as he is also expected to engage in a competition against Tariq, portrayed by Morocco Omari. Tariq is Lucious? brother who wants to pull him down.
Empire Season 3 will be released on September 21 on Fox.
