Hip hop mogul Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) will be back to power probably with the help of his new lawyer in "Empire" season 2 episode 2 titled "Without a Country", which will be telecast on Fox at 9pm on Wednesday, 30 September.

But things will not be as smooth as the protagonist thought it would be, in the upcoming sequel, which can be live streamed here. Every person in his circle, including family members, will betray him and move against his ambition to make the music company bigger than it has ever been.

The followers of the series have already got a glimpse of the second episode through various trailers released online by Fox.

A one-minute-long sneak peek video shows Cookie (Taraji P Henson) telling her team that their top priority is to keep the enemies close. It also features Hakeem (Bryshere Y Gray) admitting about leaking his album online before its official launch. The clip even highlights a FBI raid at Empire Entertainment.

So the viewers of "Empire" can expect a bumpy start for Lucious as he makes some efforts for taking his company to a new level. But the hip hop mogul will also make a smart move by trying to convince Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey).

Meanwhile, the second episode of season 2 titled "Without a Country" will also include new prison drama with the casting of rapper Ludacris as correctional officer McKnight. The character is described as a hard-working "veteran of the Federal Bureau of Prisons", who does not have any sympathy towards celebrity inmates.

To know more about the protagonist and his family, fans of the music drama series can tune in to Fox at 9pm on Wednesday, 30 September.
