Lucious Lyon and the family return for Empire Season 3 on FOX.

Empire Season 3 returns to FOX this Wednesday and the Lyon family is in complete disarray. But what else is new? After an intense Season 2 Finale, the entire Lyon clan will have their hands full picking up the pieces. We thought we’d learned everything there was to know, only to find out (gasps) Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) weren’t even their government names.

What’s next? Last we saw, Lucious’ evil mother, whom everyone thought was dead, is back in the picture. He meets his brother, FBI agent Tariq, whose in the midst of launching an investigation into him.

Rhonda discovered Anika had pushed her down the stairs at her apartment, forcing her to miscarry her and Andre’s unborn child. They fought on the balcony until one of them goes over the ledge. The drama doesn’t stop there.

Cookie is falling for Lucious again, but information about Bunkie’s death threatens their reconciliation. Laura left Hakeem at the altar and his BM (baby-momma) married his father. On the same day. Jamal had just been shot and Freda’s looking to avenge her father’s death after learning Lucious is responsible. Because when is he not?

With so much ground to cover, the Empire Season 3 premiere should be explosive! Check out Season 3’s celebrity guest-star lineup below.
