More On The 'Empire'

Season 2 finale was a serious cliffhanger for viewers. As Andre (Trai Byers) walks in between a fight with Rhonda and Anika and see them fall off a New York City roof. Thus this makes the season viewers wanting for more.

However, the finale episode is not quite the focus this time. It is in fact the different poster that came out for Empire season 3. The teaser poster shows a different version of Lucious and Cookie. It seems to be getting more questions since the last episode of season 2 shows that Cookie walks out after Lucious married Anika in order to protect her from testifying against him in court.

In the third season of the Empire, it is reported that younger versions of Lucious and Cookie will be introduced to fans. This is made possible to explore the lives of an 18-year-old Cookie a beautiful and innocent catholic girl. Lucious on the other hand already has the incredible voice and his own sense of style.

The poster shows that the on and off couple is back together for something big in season 3. It might be that they could still be at war with each other in the next season.

Light in the Darkness is Empire season 3's premiere episode. As Ilene Chaiken stated that the first episode of season 3 will be a battle between dark and light. It will answer the question on which the Lyons is really in this series. Also, if Lucious is really the dark lord pulling everyone in different directions. Chaiken also noted that if Tariq is Lucious half-brother, there is really no good nor bad.

Chaiken also added that Cookie's decision to walk away will be a part of season 3. Lucious and Cookies' relationship being over is going to put brilliance into the 'Empire's' third season.

Emire season 3 will return on FOX Network in September 21,2016.
