FOX found a ratings gem with “Empire,” as the first season broke records, but Jussie Smollett claims season two will make season one look tame as far as the drama is concerned.
E! News writes:
If you thought Empire season one was crazy, well, buckle up because season two may blow you away.
“Season one—it’s that time 20 million,” Jussie Smollett told E! News on the red carpet at the BET Awards,” I keep joking that we make season one look like The Brady Bunch because it’s a lot. It’s going there, for sure.”
Season two is now in production in Chicago with guest stars Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, Magic Mike XXL star Adam Rodriguez and Lenny Kravtiz along for the ride. Rock’s character will be locked up with Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon and Rodriguez is playing a new romantic interest for Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie Lyon.
“Empire” returns September 23.
