Fox?s hit show is set to return this fall for Empire Season 3?. And while we are patiently waiting, star Taraji P. Henson and executive producers Ilene Chaiken and Sanaa Hamri gave us some major spoilers. All three of them recently appeared at the Television Critics Association summer press tour last Monday.
Empire Season 2 saw death, as well as the breakup between Cookie (Henson) and Lucious (Terrence Howard). Avid viewers are hoping that the couple, who also happen to be the main characters, will eventually reconcile in the upcoming season.
However, it looks like this is not going to be the case.
According to Chaiken, Empire Season 3 will see Cookie leaving Lucious. The executive producer revealed that she will try to move on. It was stated that Cookie will be trying to live her life without her love regardless if Lucious will allow her to do so or not.
If there is one thing that fans can surely expect, that?s to see more of the Lyon family. Chaiken assured that the plotline will always go back to this family as the main focus. She said this is going to happen regardless of the trials concerning Lucious and Cookie?s relationship.
Henson, on the other hand, spoke about guest star Taye Diggs. The stunning actress admitted that she finds him funny. She also said that Diggs is easy on the eyes and that she enjoys working with him.
Hamri made comments about Birdman and French Montana. Both of them are also guest stars in Empire Season 3. Hamri said they were great with acting. As artists, the exec producer noticed that they are able to keep it as real as possible.
Moreover, fans can expect possible spinoffs with Lucious and Cookie?s characters. Chaiken assured that the show offers so many opportunities.
