If you missed out on all the Empire drama dominating the twitter-verse and need to catch up on what happened to Jamal and the Lyons before the premiere this week then you're in luck. TV One is giving viewers a chance to catch up with Cookie, Lucious, and the rest of the conniving clan before the series' highly anticipated finale, May 18th on FOX.
Beginning at 9 a.m. ET, on Saturday May 14th, viewers can induce themselves with 17 addictive episodes. You can take in every moment of this season without interruptions as Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner, Taraji P. Henson fights for what is hers. Henson has owned Wednesday nights on Fox with her portrayal of no-nonsense momager , Cookie Lyons making the hit show the most talked about drama on Television. After serving a long bid and taking the fall for drug-trafficking, Cookie came out of prison prepared to take the musical throne she helped create. Much to her demise, Cookie's happily evil ex-husband "Lucious" (Terrance Howard) was singing a different tune. He barely acknowledged her contribution to the empire, creating the on-going battle that has dominated the family dynasty in the last two seasons.
TV One's President, Brad Siegel, said, "EMPIRE is one of those cultural phenomena that seem to come along very rarely in television's history," said. "It's a game changer. We are so excited to give fans the opportunity to indulge in all the FABULOUSNESS of every episode of this season on one day. We expect a lot of EMPIRE fans will not be leaving their homes during this Saturday's binge-a-thon."
