Season 2 of Empire premieres next month so we have another sneak peek.  It looks like Jamal has joined forces with Lucious which lends credence to how people can sometimes remain loyal to those who have mistreated them.  Perhaps they’ve reached a level of understanding or Jamal is still hopeful of gaining favor but it certainly adds an interesting twist. 

EmpireLee Daniels announced a spin-off during the Television Critics Association summer meeting saying, “There’s so much ripe story that we’ve talked about already, about Cookie’s family, what makes her her. That in itself is fascinating to me.”

Season 2 of ‘Empire’ airs September 23rd on Fox.
