From the category of “Already?”….
The co-creator of “Empire” is already thinking about a spinoff for the show. During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, Lee Daniels said the world of the Lyon clan is rich enough to have additional series “without question.” He said there are several opportunities to explore the origins of Taraji P. Henson’s character Cookie Lyon in Philadelphia. Not only her, but also the roots of hip-hop mogul Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard.
Since its release, “Empire” has become the biggest broadcast TV hit in more than a decade. It’s premiering its second season this September.
Do you think it’s too soon for a spinoff? And would you be open to a “Empire” spinoff?
