Fox has slotted the first Wednesday of the fall season, September 23, 9 PM for the Season 2 premiere of hit hip-hop drama Empire. Series star Taraji P. Henson initially tweeted the news (actually let it slip a little early?) and then the official Empire writers’ Twitter handle confirmed the news.
As previously reported, the soapy drama will have some big-name guest stars for the second go-round including Chris Rock, Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz. The breakout first season featured guest stints by Jennifer Hudson, Courtney Love, Naomi Campbell, Gladys Knight and Snoop Dogg.
