All hail the much-anticipated return of “Empire” to FOX TV this Wednesday night March 22. TV One knows you can’t wait that long so Sunday March 19 get your “Empire” fix with a season three marathon.
It all begins at 2 p.m. ET for your binge-watching pleasure. Relive or see for the first time all 9 episodes of season 3 back-to-back. That is a heck of a lot of time with the Lyon family, but fans of the show understand it takes a while to digest it all.
We all know that each episode featuring Cookie, Lucious and the three Lyon sons is packed with intrigue, shade and music you can’t find anywhere else. Starring Academy Award-nominated actors Terence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, the show is so over-the-top it takes your breath away and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Here’s some background, just so your head doesn’t begin to spin immediately! The season gives us plenty of prologue on how Cookie and Lucious met, fell in love and defied her family. She began life as Loretha Hollaway, whose family had no love for Lucious. Cookie left everyone behind for the life she knew she wanted with him. In present time, the two are still dealing with their past, and the feelings that still exist between them. Just take a look at the sneak peek of what’s coming in season 3, posted below!
The TV One folks are just as excited as we are: “With amazing music, incredible plot twists and top-rated guest appearances, TV One’s EMPIRE marathon is a great opportunity for viewers to catch the fever all over again or experience the phenomenon for the very first time,” said TV One President Brad Siegel. “It’s time to grab your popcorn and get comfortable on the couch as these dynamic characters battle to reign supreme.”
