Empire Season 2 Cast Shots: Lucious Gets the Blues (as Does Porsha's Hair!)

Empire may have 1,374 guest stars climbing aboard this fall, but fret not: It’s the show’s nine series-regular characters who get all the attention in the Fox drama’s first official Season 2 photos.

The mood is mostly subdued, as eight of the show’s stars are completely clad in black. The sole exception, Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon, eschews the orange prison jumpsuit he rocked in the Season 1 finale in favor of cool, cool blue.

Actually, “subdued” probably isn’t the right adjective for Ta’Rhonda Jones’ Porsha, either, not with those turquoise streaks in her hair or the outré jewelry, either. (Methinks she’d better be careful, hogging all the accessories from boss lady Cookie, no?)
