In an interview with LA Times, Empire showrunner Ilene Chaiken revealed the second half of Empire season 2 will focus on the Lyon family coming back together. She said: "The second half of the season is really about the family coming back together. I think that's the big headline: The Lyons family comes back together initially to vanquish their enemies, to take their company back while always and forever competing with one another for all the same things. So, there are shifting allegiances in the context of all that but it's very much about the love and the treachery among these wild and crazy people."
