‘Empire’ Season 2 Means More Taraji And Less Terrence

‘Empire’ Season 2 Means More Taraji And Less Terrence

We are less than a month away from the Season 2 premiere of the hit hip-hop drama, Empire, and we are already predicting the storyline. Due to personal drama, expect to see a lot less of Terrence Howard this season. But don’t fret as this means more Taraji P. Henson and Serayah McNeill, who was recently promoted to a series regular.

Let’s start with Howard. Unfortunately, during the height of his TV career, relationship issues are taking over the veteran actor’s life. Howard secretly divorced his third wife after the birth of their son and is still facing a nasty divorce settlement with his second wife. It looks like the star should just be single for a while, but that isn’t the end of his troubles. Past domestic violence accusations from previous relationships have come to light and Empire is slowly backing away from the star.

So, what will this look like on screen? If you remember the final episode of season one, Howard’s character, Luscious Lyons, was arrested for murder. Page Six reports we should expect to see him behind bars for most of the season, taking a step back from his every-episode role.

“They have him locked up, so you won’t be seeing him in as many scenes. But they are bringing in so many, and I mean so many, guest stars and cameos that the average viewer won’t realize it because there is so much going on,” a source told Page Six.

Besides the guest stars (which include Chris Rock, Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz), expect to see more of the youngest Lyon’s early love interest and label-mate Tiana. Serayah, who plays the pop star, has been promoted to a series regular.shutterstock_251003776-352x450

Overall, less Howard and more Serayah eventually means more Cookie, and we’re here for that!

“She’s going to start dropping off from the flashback scenes and then they’re going to have her guns blazing,” said the source of Taraji’s role taking center stage.

Season two premiers September 23. Will you miss the Almighty Luscious this season?
