My Fall line up: Empire, Scandal, & Being Mary Jane!
Fall is officially here, all of my favorite television shows have dropped their teasers and I couldn’t be more excited. Not happy to see summer go but I am not mad that I have to break out those comfy sweaters and order those pumpkin flavored lattes. It’s the cold and snow I have issues with, the Fall is one of my favorite seasons the other is Spring.
Let’s take a stroll to the Lyon’s den, the hit show Empire is only in its second season and its return is one highly anticipated by fans of the show. We all want to know who will take control of the Empire? That has been the question since Lucious was taken into custody for the murder of Cookie’s cousin. Will it be Cookie (in my opinion she deserves it) the oldest son Andre, the middle and ever so loving son Jamal, or
drip drop I mean Hakeem the youngest of the Lyon clan? The plot thickens as we see Boo Boo Kitty is not leaving the Empire either, I wonder how she will move during Lucious time in the slammer? And then we see a lot of celebrities that will be making guest appearances on the show, Chris Rock is in jail with Lucious, Kelly Rowland will play Lucious’s mother in flashback scenes, Diddy’s son Quincy has been added as well. I know we can expect some drama, more of Cookie going off, and hopefully some big plot twists and turns. For starters, how will Lucious get out of jail? Empire premieres Wednesday September 23rd at 9pm est on FOX. PS. We are hosting a watch party for the premiere, if you are in NYC come through!!!
If you know me then you know that I am a permanent resident in ShondaLand, I have a home purchased and everything. I saw the season 5 trailer for Scandal and almost lost my mind. I didn’t and still don’t fully know how Olivia and Fitz are going to keep their relationship going. Cyrus is out of the white house, Jake is gone, Poppa Pope is sitting in a cell, and now from the preview Fitz is going to ask his wife (the 1st lady) for a divorce (smh). I don’t see Mellie 2.0 simply leaving the white house that easy or will she? I wonder what new problems will Olivia have to fix and I really hope they bring someone in to stir things up (Momma Pope) would be a great addition. Scandal return Thursday September 24th at 9pm est on ABC.
Now you know I cannot leave out Being Mary Jane! Ms. Mary Jane Paul left us all gasping during the season finale when she got into a car accident when it was revealed that David and Dr. Lisa had been together. Is it wrong that the first thing I thought about when she got into the car accident was her face? That is her money maker lol, BET dropped a teaser for season 3 and I was so here for Momma Paul’s read to Dr Lisa. I wonder what new or old male prospects will enter this season and what drama will they bring? I am also looking forward to the fashion! Mary Jane’s wardrobe is always on point, so I am looking forward to seeing how they will dress her this season. Being Mary Jane returns Tuesday October 20th 9pm est.
BONUS: Morris Chestnut will be playing lead in FOX’s newest scripted television show, “Rosewood.” Chestnut plays Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Junior a private pathologist in Miami, he uses his autopsy lab to perform for-hire autopsies to uncover clues that the Miami PD can’t seem to crack without his services. Rosewood makes its series premiere Tuesday September 23rd on FOX at 8pm (right before Empire).
My Fall line up is looking real good! Let me know what shows you are looking forward to watching this Fall.
