Empire has always had a penchant for drama, and that's exactly why fans love the show so much. And the Super Bowl trailer for Empire Season 3 reveals that things are about to get a whole lot more exciting for Cookie and Lucious Lyon. With a lens keenly focused on Taraji P. Henson, the Super Bowl trailer for the hit Fox show shows Cookie with a zillion different hairstyles and brandishing her very own baseball bat. The midseason finale of Empire left the audience with a lot of questions, but luckily, the latest trailer gives more than a few clues about what's going to happen next on the show.
Empire returns from hiatus on March 22, and the show's Super Bowl trailer makes it clear that it'll be worth the wait. From dramatic and incredibly violent showdowns between Cookie and Lucious, to Henson looking like an Orange Is The New Black cast member in an orange jumpsuit, the series has definitely saved some drama for the second half of Season 3. The relationship between Cookie and Lucious is most definitely the focal point of the new trailer, and it looks as though their love story might be about to reignite.
