Fox has released the first, very brief teaser for season 2 of its massive hit drama "Empire," and oh, how the tables have turned. Instead of flashbacks of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) visiting ex-wife Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) in prison, now it's Cookie's turn to see the jailed mogul.
There's only 20 seconds worth of footage, but we get glimpses at all the major players: Jamal (Jussie Smollett) singing at a #FreeLucious concert; a smug Boo Boo Kitty (Grace Gealey) walking away from Hakeem (Bryshere Gray); Andre (Trai Byers) in a suit (what's new?); Lucious in an orange jumpsuit; and of course, Cookie, in all her glory, in a cage holding a gold microphone. Oh, Cookie, never change!

Season 2 of "Empire" amps up the drama even more — yeah, it's possible — with guest appearances by Marisa Tomei, Kelly Rowland (as Lucious's mom in flashbacks), Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, and Lenny Kravitz.

"Empire" season 2 debuts September 23 on Fox.
