Empire is a musical drama television series that started airing on the Fox channel. The series is loosely based on the play The Lion in Winter written by a renowned American playwright James Goldman. This hip hop family drama series tells a story of a music empire. Empire was created by Lee Daniels (Precious, The Paper Boy, Shadowboxer) and Danny Strong (Game Change, Lee Daniels’ The Butler). Season 1 of Empire premiered on the Fox channel on January 7, 2015.
It’s impossible to distill Empire‘s Season 2 premiere down to a single line of dialogue, but under threat of a Frank Gathers dinner invite (more on that in a second), we’d go with Lucious Lyon’s cold, calculated “Who is that lesbian bitch?”
In other words, Wednesday’s explosive hour — which featured a decapitated head in a box, a boardroom scene that would make Alexis Carrington-Colby gasp and a ferocious booty-shake from Boo-Boo Kitty herself — is evidence that Fox’s critical and ratings juggernaut is on course not just to maintain the pace of its heady freshman season, but to supersede it.
