What You Can Expect From “Empire” Season 2 [Watch]
For some odd reason, even though Empire’s debut season concluded with Lucious Lyon’s arrest, it did not register in my mind that the following season would pick up with Lucious behind bars–even though that’s usually what follows an arrest. Perhaps I bought into his whole “I’m invincible” speech, or maybe, seeing the crooked music mogul wiggle his way out of everything, including a deadly ALS misdiagnosis, led me to believe that he would also weasel his way out of jail. However, apparently, that is not the case.
Filming for the new season began yesterday, and it picked up in the Cook County jail. In a series of Instagram clips shared by executive producer Lee Daniels, Terrence Howard and “Empire” newcomer Chris Rock can be seen sporting bright orange prison jumpsuits.
“My first day was incredible,” said Rock. “I worked with the great Terrence Howard, and the great Lee Daniels.”
It looks like we’ll also be getting a little eye candy this season. Lee stays clowning, so, of course, he had to take a moment to flaunt the prison baes.
It’s going to be really interesting to see what schemes Lucious cooks up during his time in the pen. I’m also pretty eager to see what Chris’ character has to offer. Hopefully, he becomes a permanent fixture on the show.
So, you ready for season two or nah?
