TV Line reports that “Empire” is casting a teenage version of Cookie and Lucious, which will be seen in Season 3 of the hit Fox series. The report reveals that viewers will finally get to see more of Cookie and Lucious origin story, and we may even get to see a flashback of the two meeting, getting married, and welcoming their three children together.

‘Empire’ Spin-Off About Young Cookie In The Works?
Last summer, “Empire” creator Lee Daniels revealed that he wanted to develop a spin-off about Cookie’s early years and upbringing in Philadelphia. However, it hasn’t been revealed if the latest casting news will be in correlation with the spin-off plans.
“Here Cookie is now, but how did she get to where she’s at right now?” he shared. “Let’s go back and understand her mother, her sisters…. Let’s understand the makings of her… It’d be like a prequel.”
