Three Things You Must Know About Empire’s Season Premiere On Fox!By Delaina Dixon | September 26, 2018 | Entertainment
Divas! We know what we’ll be doing – aside from celebrating our Divalicious’ EIC birthday today! We’re all jazzed up for tonight’s season five premiere of Empire on FOX!
So what do you need to know before you sit down to watch the Lyons do what they do best? Here are three nuggets to get you up to speed.
The show picks up two years AFTER season four finale. The Lyon family took quite a hit at the end of last season, including a hostile takeover. Two years have passed, and they are determined to get back on top. Knowing the humble beginnings which started the Empire dynasty, we think it will be a successful endeavor.
A character is set to “die.” So, according to the teasers for this season, Lucious is looking over a coffin and saying “I’m sorry.” Jussie Smollet, who plays Jamal Lyon, has promised that this season’s story will be “groundbreaking.” But don’t be fooled into believing that someone is actually dead, as there have been no major casting exits announced over the past few weeks.
Terrence Howard knows how to work a room! OK, we admit this isn’t storyline news. But we did attend the season 5 premiere party at Lafayette restaurant in New York City on Monday night. And while Lucious may be cutthroat when it comes to putting his empire back, he’s more than approachable for fans itching to get pics – evidenced by our own devoted DivaGals staff. Kudos Terrence!
Empire, Season 5, premieres Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. on FOX.
