FOX dropped the ball by not using Empire more to promote Star. Sure, it gave it a lead-in for the premiere episode but the shows should’ve been interwoven more. The network is rectifying that situation next season.
A crossover event for the season premieres of Empire and Star will take place on September 27. While a recently released promo touts “Two Bad Mothers, One Amazing Night,” the event will actually feature Queen Latifah appearing on Empire while Jussie Smollett shuffles over to Star. Check out the promo below.
On the brink of Empire Entertainment’s 20th anniversary, Lucious is making his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, while all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious’ nurse, Claudia (guest star Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties. Then, on Star, the girls – with Carlotta as their manager – continue to face roadblocks, despite their victory at Atlanta NextFest.
