The network also released the first promo for the even, which will take place on Wednesday, September 27.
The event will bring Empire’s Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) face to face with Star’s Carlotta (Queen Latifah). Queen Latifah will appear on the Season 4 premiere of Empire, airing at 8 p.m., while Jussie Smollett’s character Jamal will appear on the Season 2 premiere of Star, airing a 9 p.m.
Both shows are executive produced by Lee Daniels and are both musical dramas set in Atlanta, making them prime crossover fodder.
The two shows have seemingly existed in the same universe for a while, when a special online-only scene was released last year showing Empire’s Lucious (Terrence Howard) meeting with Star’s Roland (Lenny Kravitz).
Watch that scene below and the promo for the new seasons of Empire and Star above.
