Empire ended with a serious cliffhanger last May that featured Andre (Trai Byers) walking in on a fight between Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday) and Anika (Grace Gealey) — just in time to see what appears to be one (or both) of them falling off a New York City roof. However, that cliffhanger is not the primary focus of a new Season 3 poster that was released via Entertainment Weekly on Thursday.
This poster is promising a very different version of Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) given what we saw in the Season 2 finale, when Cookie stormed off after Lucious married Anika to protect her from having to testify against him in court.
This teaser poster, however, is making it appear that the on-again, off-again couple is back to ruling together. Or could it be that they're just the warring parties that will be running the show next season? If that's the case, well then, it would just be business as usual over at the home of the Lyons.
Empire returns September 21 on Fox.
