Fox hit TV series, Empire creator, Lee Daniels is planning a spinoff of the series about Taraji P. Henson‘s “firecracker” character, Cookie Lyon.
Daniels made the revelation on Thursday at TCA panel for the series. “I think there is going to be a spinoff from ‘Empire,’ without question,” he told those present. “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.“
However, executive producer of the show does not seem as enthusiastic about the idea as Daniels. Brian Glazer is a little bit more cautious and wants the main show to continue without hassles. Glazer said, “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 spinoff.“
Let’s wait and see what happens though.
