The latest “Empire” season 3 spoilers have suggested that a spin-off for Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) might be on the works.
What could be the plot of this new show? Would the ex-couple finally reunite in the spin-off?
How would it differ from the storyline of the upcoming new season?
While fans of the television drama series might be excited to know that a spin-off could be possible, Celeb Dirty Laundry never mentioned any details about it, except that there is a chance it could happen.
“There is the potential spin-off with Lucious and Cookie’s characters for sure,” the entertainment site’s “Empire” season 3 spoilers dished. “Ilene Chaiken says they are thinking about spin-off ideas ‘all the time.’”
Apart from the spin-off of the story between Lucious and Cookie, it was noted that a possibility that “a crossover between Lee Daniels’ Empire and his other musical show, ‘Star’” would happen.
In the meantime, as exec producers Ilene Chaiken and Sanaa Hamri and star Taraji P. Henson faced the media during the Television Critics Association summer press tour, a number of “Empire” season 3 spoilers have been revealed, Variety reported.
“Cookie is going to try in Season 3 to leave Lucious,” Chaiken said. “She’s going to try to move on.”
As for the star playing the character, Cookie is definitely moving on “Whether or not he lets her!”
Chaiken further disclosed that the new season will highlight the relationship of the Lyon family despite the challenges being faced by Empire.
“We learned that the stories that work best and that we love telling most are about the family, and that always will be our focus,” the showrunner shared. “No matter what’s going on at Empire, it’s always about the family.”
To make the storyline even more exciting, “A-list guest stars,” including Mariah Carey, are set to join the cast of the third season.
