I don’t know about you, but I am READY for a new season of ‘Empire’! Fox dropped a quick teaser trailer for the second season, which premieres on September 23. It’s things like this that make it easier to say good-bye to summer, isn’t it? LOL
If you follow ‘Empire’ creator and director Lee Daniels on Instagram, then you know that he’s been hard at work on the second season for a while. It looks like he was very hands-on, whether he was directing or producing! Check out some of his Instagram posts:

Here he is with Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie on ‘Empire.’

Sounds like they’ll have some more great music on the show!

He even joked about stealing some major bling (or, at least, an impressive looking prop) from the set at one point.
Taraji had fun on set late one night:

And then Lee went on a well-deserved vacation:
Now Lee’s ready to get back to work:
I been thinking as I leave italy back to reality …. And I’m praying that I accept my loved ones and friends for who they are and for the strength to keep listening to my spirit in spite the NOISE #iswearididntposeforthis #fishercaughtmethinking #heaskedmeapennyforyourthoughts #andthiswasmyresponse #readytogetbacktoworkandSLAY🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿 A photo posted by Lee Daniels (@theoriginalbigdaddy) on
It seemed awfully fast to shoot ‘Empire’ in a month! I know it’s not as long as regular shows, but that still seemed fast- LOL. I’m glad he’s ready to slay, as he wrote about: a lot of people are eagerly awaiting the second season of ‘Empire’! Check out the trailer:
