Last week, we were treated to a pure gold poster for Empire’s second season. Now Fox has released a first look at the new year of the hit show.
There aren’t actual lions in this promo, but all the Lyons are present. Season 2 pushes the theme “New Music, New Money, New Power, New Empire,” with shots of the hip-hop monarchy posed next to each phrase. A quick rundown:
New Music: Hakeem and Jamal are in the studio and playing at a #FreeLucious concert, respectively.
New Money: Cookie and ‘Mal look concerned with the new influx of dough.
New Power: Andre looks confident strolling through the halls of (probably) Empire Entertainment, and Anika is shockingly back.
New Empire: Lucious is still donned in his orange jumpsuit behind bars.
Oh, and for a half second we see Hakeem ride his Hovertrax as Cookie, Andre, and Anika merely walk.
Empire season 2 premieres on Fox on Sept. 23.
