Get ready to enter the Lyon’s den.

EW reunited the Lyon family at the photo shoot for this week’s cover story on Fox’s Empire—a gargantuan hit that’s been climbing in the ratings for a remarkable seven consecutive weeks.

The series had wrapped its first season by the time of our shoot, and the cast—Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, and Bryshere Y. Gray—clearly relished the chance to hang out again for the day at New York’s Up & Down club, near the Meatpacking District.

Watch our exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the entire cast below—which includes Henson’s message for Kim Kardashian.
