Empire and Star are set to dominate Wednesday nights on FOX this September. Both shows officially return with back to back crossover episodes on Sept. 27.

To celebrate, the network has released some lush cast photography ahead of the new season. We’ve also got a sneak peek video teasing Diana Dubois’ (Phylicia Rashad) return along with her plans to take down the Lyon family once and for all — starting with Cooke’s children.

FOX teases — In Season Four, Empire’s explosive twists and turns resume, as Empire Entertainment embarks on a celebration of its 20th anniversary.

Lucious (Terrence Howard) makes his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, and all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious’ nurse, Claudia (guest star Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties.

While Lucious struggles with his recovery, Cookie (Golden Globe Award winner Taraji P. Henson) begins to revisit the most challenging time of her life – her 17 years in prison – in a series of flashbacks.

Throughout the season, Lucious, Cookie and their three sons will be forced to take a hard look at their choices, both past and present, in order to secure their legacy and save their Empire.

In true Lyon fashion, Season Four will be filled with exciting new music, splashy events and high-profile guest stars. In addition to Moore’s return, Phylicia Rashad will reprise her role as Diana Dubois, who, along with her son, Angelo (returning guest star Taye Diggs), launches an elaborate plan to take revenge on the Lyons. Forest Whitaker also will be joining the cast for a multi-episode arc as Uncle Eddie, a charismatic music icon and Lyon family friend.
