The crossover is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 27th at 8 p.m. with Empire's season four premiere.
On the brink of Empire Entertainment's 20th anniversary, Lucious is set to make his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, while all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious' nurse, Claudia (Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties.
