TV series “Empire” could be getting a prequel spin-off all about Cookie.
Co-creator Lee Daniels said at the Television Critics Association press tour that an offshoot focused on Taraji P Henson’s character was happening “without question”, reported The Wrap.
“There is going to be a spin-off from Empire without question. 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,” Daniels said.
“Here Cookie is now, but how did she get to where she’s at right now? Let’s go back and understand her mother. Let’s go back and understand her sisters.
“Let’s get back and understand the makings of her. That, I know, because I know Cookie… It would be like a prequel.”
The spin-off has yet to be officially confirmed by Fox.
