Kelly Rowland To Join Cast Of Empire Season 2

Empire’s VIP guest list for Season 2 keeps growing!

Kelly Rowland will appear on the hit FOX show this fall, a source revealed to E! News. The 34-year-old R&B singer will play Lucious Lyon’s mother, a role which will be played in a flashback.

During season 1, Empire often featured scenes from Terrence Howard’s character’s past, which shows and his feisty now-ex-wife Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson, during harder times before they built their powerful music empire.

Last month, Rowland hung out with Empire screenwriters, sparking speculation she may make an appearance on the show.

The show’s second season is set to debut on Sept. 23 and feature high-profile guest stars such as Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys and Marisa Tomei, who will play a demanding venture capitalist.

Also, Cookie’s love life heats up even more in season 2—Magic Mike XXL actor Adam Rodriguez will portray her new love interest.
