Fox is crowning Cookie and Lucious king (and queen) of the world in its ad campaign for Empire‘s final season.
The series’ official Season 6 key art — scroll down for an exclusive first look — finds Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard’s respective alter egos striking a very familiar, Titanic-esque pose. The serious, sinister expression on Cookie and Lucious’ faces, however, stands in stark contrast to the decidedly more swoon-worthy vibe that Jack and Rose were giving off in the memorable scene from the 1997 film. Other key differences between the two images: Cookie is clutching a pair of mics, and she and Lucious are (presumably) not standing on the bow of a cruise ship.
Empire‘s incendiary duo will find themselves dodging proverbial icebergs when the series returns later this month. And one of them bears the nickname “White Tracy.” As showrunner Brett Mahoney teases, the grieving, somewhat unhinged mother of Lucious’ late son Kingsley will be back to deliver on her threat to make the Lyon family pay. “You will find out what complication she poses in the season premiere,” the EP previews to TVLine, before adding, “We’re going to see quite a bit of her.”
Empire‘s sixth and final season premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 24 (9/8c, Fox).
Personally I will not be watching as faithfully once did. I will miss jussie character whom brought love and true and good music to the show. The show will not be complete without one of the main characters. It like having James Evan die over again. I done
I would like to see Empire continue and bring Jesse Smollett back.
I’m glad they removed him, what he did was a disgrace to real victims. Further more it saddens me because his character and music was a highlight to me, but he made his own bed. Sad as a society we promote being a victim as appealing so much he was willing fake an attack to garner more fame .
They need put some more lucious music in there, everything with Howard has been fire. Be interested to see how last season is .
Waiting for the new season
Absolutely one of my favorite shows I am so sorry that they’re taking it off !!! And Jessie was one of the most talented singers on that show !! Sad that this Show has to end !!
I absolutely love this show. Everybody gets a do-over and Jessie deserve one. If this is the last season then they need to go out with a bang. With Jessie! All the nay sayers have did wrong too. Jessie is a public figure, so he is on blast! He doesn’t know about the mess the people watching him has done. I will truly miss them all. I love the entire cast and wish you all well.
I feel you on this one loved seeing him sing and preform
He was a great actor
He brought to the show
Humans his brothers
What channel will the new season be on, and what date please
