Fox has confirmed that the second season of Empire will include more episodes than the first season, which is AMAZING!
Instead of only 12 episodes, we will now receive 18 full episodes of our favorite new hit series. So, yes; more Cookie and more of the Lyon family. This is both a blessing and a curse because this means we will have six additional weeks of sitting on the couch to finish the season. The production team has also revealed that the season will be split in between, so it may seem like two short seasons instead of one long one.
Although the original cast of Empire was just fine-including the cameos from some of our favorite artists-we would definitely like to see some more familiar faces. Check out 13 #PYNKGirlApproved celebrities that we would like to make an appearance on the hit show’s second season.
Update: The second season of Empire is set to premiere Wednesdays starting Sept. 23
