Empire won't be back until the end of March, but the Lyon family is already making its presence felt - what with an announcement that rapper Xzibit will guest star as Lucious' (Terrence Howard) rival and now, a trailer.
Indeed, Lucious' seems like he'll have quite a bit on his plate this season since, when we saw him last, he'd just been disowned by his son Hakeem and dethroned as the head of Empire thanks to a sneaky coup by cougar-in-wait Camilla (Naomi Campbell.)
In the clip released Thursday, Hakeem looks to be at the head of the table, while Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and ex-husband Lucious seem on much friendlier — and snugglier — terms. Might we see a reconciliation? Other questions raised from the clip: should we assume from Andre's (Trai Byers) collapse to the floor that his wife Rhonda Kai and/or her baby didn't survive after the push from a masked intruder? And last, but most definitely not least, where or where is our homegirl Porsha (Ta'Rhonda Jones)?!
Check out the trailer below
