For all of the Empire fans who LOVE Cookie will certainly be pleased. Looks like Cookie could be getting her own spin-off show. If her character in her own show is anything like what she portrays on Empire…whooo hooo!!! It’s sure to garner great ratings. Taraji P. Henson is putting her all into the role of Cookie and from what we’ve seen on Empire, she’s doing a phenomenal job.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Lee Daniels says there will be a spin-off of his smash hit “Empire.”
“Without question,” the series’ co-creator and executive producer said to a panel of TV critics Thursday. “There’s so much ripe story that we’ve talked about already, about Cookie’s family, what makes her her. That in itself is fascinating to me.”
Executive producer Brian Grazer told The Associated Press the agenda before a spin-off can happen is to “never get corny. Completely stay authentic. … As long as it stays dangerous, we’re cool. As long as we can stay that way for this season, these guys can think about a spin-off, we’ll be OK.”
It was also announced that Pitbull will guest star in the second season of the soap about the music business, which returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. EDT. The rapper will play himself and perform with Jussie Smollet, who plays Jamal.
