Director Lee Daniels let the cat out of the bag on Thursday in a post on his Instagram page. He wrote, “Yes! Stop asking!!! #tyrese is coming on #empireseason2”
Daniels also shut down rumors he’s leaving the show, but confirmed he will be stepping away for a while to work on his Richard Pryor biopic starring Mike Epps.
NO, I am not leaving my show! I just wrapped my 1st episode…I got #richardpryor to do! It was so much fun directing our wonderful cast … I miss and love them ALL… Sorta 😔 sad cause I’m not with them now but I’ll be back for the finale!! In the meantime we got some badass directors stepping in!!! #family #fox #empire #gottagettomakingmovies #iaintmadeamoviesincethebutler
Well, this should be interesting. Earlier this year, March to be exact, Tyrese hinted to an appearance on the show when he tapped into his inner Jody and snapped on IG because Cookie was getting busy with Malcolm.
