After a stellar debut season, FOX’s breakaway hit ‘Empire’ wished its inaugural run adieu to the tune of a whopping 17 million viewers.

Only heightening anticipation for its season 2 return, the show’s director – Lee Daniels – announced a slew of new guest stars (Brandy, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock) in addition to increasing its episode load from 12 to 18 for its next-go-round.

Now, fans wondering when they’ll get their first peek at the show’s sophomore run should wonder no more as its premiere date has been officially unveiled (spoilers below):

Season 2 Highlights (as revealed to date): September 23, 2015

  • Cookie will be busy with two new love interests
  • Andre & Rhonda have a baby on the way
  • Chris Rock will play a person from the past
  • The season will be split into two parts (a la ‘Scandal’) with the first run being 10 episodes and the next being 8
