Empire Season 3 Back Half Spoilers
The focus of Empire season back half remains the family. As executive producer Sanaa Hamri revealed it would show if the Lyon family can manage to stay together in the midst of the power struggle.
“It’s going to be Andre and his rise, and what damage he’s going to do to Empire. It’s going to be about Cookie and her relationship to Lucious — how deep is their love, and will it last or will it be gone forever? We see a lot more flashbacks in which we get even more of a sense of the bond between Lucious and Cookie, and what happened in the past, so we’re going to learn so much more,” Hamri previously told Variety. He added:
“And then also with Jamal, will he be able to be an artist who’s sober? Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) has a kid, and he’s trying to build this whole Takeem situation with Tiana (Serayah) … And then you’ve got Nessa in the mix who’s trying to overtake and outshine Tiana because they’re all on the same label … But I feel like the whole Andre of it all is going to be really, really intense.”
