Lucious has a plan to take back his empire in a new teaser for the midseason premiere of Fox’s hit musical drama
When “Empire” returns on March 30, the Lyon family patriarch is trying to regain control of Empire as Camilla (guest star Naomi Campbell) runs the show, planning to make Hakeem (Bryshere Grey) the new CEO.
“I’m going to take back my kingdom,” Lucious says in the preview, “and you’re going to help me.”
Though we don’t see who he’s speaking the words to, the preview seems to suggest that he’s speaking to his ex Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), causing some concern for her son, Jamal (Jussie Smollett).
“What me and your father got is very deep,” Cookie tells him. “You don’t just throw that away because of a few misunderstandings.”
