See Terrence Howard and Chris Rock in prison in first set photos from 'Empire' season 2

Posted on


Lucious Lyon won’t be doing too well when season 2 of Empire begins, now that he’s in prison, but actor Terrence Howard seems to be enjoying the change of scene. Showrunner Lee Daniels posted a series of Instagram photos and videos from the Fox drama’s first days shooting the second season. In the posts, Daniels hangs out with Howard and Chris Rock in their orange prison garb, as well as other actors on set, and Howard reveals he accidentally punched Rock in a scene.

Empire returns Sept. 23 on Fox.

Locked up with Lucious on #empireseason2 #terrencehoward #chrisrock #fox #freelucious 👊🏿
