Yes, it’s every episode of seasons one and two of “Empire”, ready for your binge-watching pleasure this weekend on TV ONE. The network is welcoming the summer with an epic Memorial Day weekend marathon spanning two consecutive days, Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.
Get set for the carousel of action and intrigue that “Empire” delivers as the Lyon family explores the worlds of the music industry as a family that went from the streets to the penthouse, thanks to patriarch Lucious Lyon and matriarch Cookie.
Viewers are invited to binge watch the dynastic drama starting with Season 1 on Sunday, May 29 at 12 p.m. ET/Noon and Season 2 on Monday, May 30 at 7 a.m. ET. It’s every episode of television’s award-winning and most nominated series starring Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson.
There’s a digital tie-in care of TV One. The network announced the launch of four new online packages:
- “This Ain’t New,” a think piece on the comparison between soaps of yesteryear and their modern interpretations or remixes.
- “Which Empire Character Are You?,” an exclusive online quiz to determine if viewers have what it takes to be a Lyon.
- “Music Star Copycat,” an in-depth look at which real-life musicians were the inspiration for EMPIRE’s cast of characters.
- “Best Empire Looks,” a week-to-week editorial capturing each character’s best looks.
If that isn’t enough of an immersion into the show, TV One has one more treat. “The Fight For The Throne,” showcases the best power moves of EMPIRE’s noteworthy characters – Andre, Hakeem, Cookie, Jamal and Lucious – which include video, photographs and artwork capturing their best moments, quotes and scenes. A link to that experience is posted below.
No spoilers here, but if you haven’t seen the season two finale, you have yet to see the lengths to which the writers of “Empire” are willing to go to give us a killer cliffhanger. Link to “The Fight For The Throne”.
