Empire's New Season 2 Poster Puts Focus on the Fractured Family

Hakeem Lyon looks warily over his shoulder in the new poster touting the second half of Empire‘s sophomore season — and we can’t blame him.

Last we saw the family’s youngest son, he was voting to oust his father from the top perch of Empire Entertainment — the exact opposite of what his ferocious mother Cookie had instructed him to do.

Still, while both parents might want to take a broom (or worse) to their disobedient son, the aforementioned poster contains a pearl of wisdom that could be interpreted as either hopeful or downright foreboding: “Without family, there is no Empire.”

Check out the artwork for yourself below, then share your hopes for Empire when it returns March 30 at 9/8c.
