Tonight is the season 4 premiere of Empire at 8pm ET/PT.
This season of the show will shift the focus away from guest stars and back to the Lyons. That isn’t to say that there won’t be some impressive new faces on the screen. Demi Moore, who first appeared in the season 3 finale, will be playing a recurring role as a nurse who helps Luscious with his recovery, and she’ll be joined by her daughter, Rumer Willis, who has been upped to a series regular.
Oscar and Golden Globe winner Forest Whitaker will also be appearing on the show this season in the recurring role of Uncle Eddie, who comes to lend a hand to Luscious.
Tonight’s premiere will be a crossover event with the season 2 premiere of Star; also a Lee Daniels’ show. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter recently, Queen Latifah said she always envisioned the two shows colliding. “I always saw us crossing over… That was in my brain from day one: ‘One day that could happen.'”
