The show stars Academy Award nominated actor Terrence Howard as protagonist Lucious Lyon, as he weathers a life of drug dealer to rise through the ranks to become a hip-hop mogul, only to see his life crash and burn as he is diagnosed with ALS.

Empire Season 2 depicts the rat race to the summit that Lucious’ family comprising of his three sons – Jamal, Andre and Hakeem, his wife Cookie and himself, undergo as heseeks to pass the mantle to one of his sons.

The season picks up pace as the entire family is embroiled in controversies and machinations as their quest to be the top dog, heats up. Cookie Lyon, Luscious’s ex-wife, despite their murky past, stands firm with her flawed husband and his tribulations. The depiction of Cookie has won Taraji Penda Henson quite a few laurels with the audience and pundits alike. She also won the Golden Globe award for her performance. This season also showcases the identity of Luscious and lets us know the enigmatic ex-drug dealer a much better.
