Fox's hit series "Empire" will return from its midseason haitus in a weeks time on March 30. We'll finally get answers to all the cliffhangers left in fall finale, "Et Tu, Brute?"

While the fans are waiting for the show to return, the cast has been giving some answers as to what viewers can expect when "Emprie" returns. In a recent interview with TVLine, Kaitlin Doubleday revealed we won't find out who pushed her character down the stairs untilt the season finale.

"She realizes who pushed her and… she gets to confront [him/her] in a very dynamic, scary, insane, crazy way,” Doubleday said. "I think the audience [will be] waiting for that confrontation for all eight episodes."

The actress also revealed her character, Rhonda, will also partner with an unlikely character in the last eight episodes of the second season. She reveals she'll be working alongside Camilla (Naomi Campbell) at some point, who is the same person that took Empire Entertainment from Lucious (Terrence Howard).

While Doubleday dished on what will happen to Rhonda, she stayed quiet about the fate of her baby. We wont know for sure if Rhonda lost her baby until "Empire" returns, but from the promo trailer we can only imagine the news isn't good. Check out the video below along with these five juicy details about the second season of "Empire."

1. According to Entertainment Weekly, Annie Ilonzeh has been cast in the role of TV reporter Harper Scott and will appear in the second half of the season. EW describes her character as "one of the best reporters in the business and is focused on Empire." EW goes on to say, "she’s tough, smart, and not above using her seductive appearance to get answers."

2. Trai Byers, who plays Andre Lyon, shot down any rumors that he was leaving the show because he felt his character wasn't being utilized enough in the second season.

"There’s not a stitch of truth to it," Byers said (via Variety). "But it shows the love and popularity to the show … Again, it’s not true, but it opens the ground to really talk about how media uses their power to perpetuate negativity built on lies versus positivity which is built on truth … The truth has to ring louder than the lies."

3. Executive Producer Ilene Chaiken has been talking all things Lucious. According to Chaiken:

"Lucious ends the first part of this season having lost his company, which is everything to him. Of all the things that have transpired in Lucious Lyon's life, losing his company is possibly the worst thing that has ever happened to him."

She further goes on to say, "Lucious has spent the whole season trying to get his family under his control, trying to win Hakeem back, trying to get him back to Empire and back under his control, and lo and behold, Hakeem is the one who's responsible for Lucious losing his company. That relationship couldn't be more strained, and Lucious' anger at Hakeem, and his determination to pay him back for what he's done has hit a threshold, that they've never come close to before."

4. The actors reveal whats in store for the Lyons when "Empire" returns March 30. "It's the battle of Lucious against his sons," Bryshere Y. Gray told E! News. "It's intense. It's the family. Without family, there's no Empire."

It also appears the Lyons' power struggle could take some extreme twists in the second half of the season. "The Lyons will do anything to get control of their company," executive producer Brian Grazer told E! during PaleyFest.

Furthermore, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal, talks about the season finale saying, "… What we're going to see in these last episodes of of the second season, is Lucious and Cookie coming together to try to fix their family, because we are so broken."

5. Aside from the family drama Gabourey Sidibe, who plays Becky Williams, revealed Lucious will meet a terrifyng member from his past.

"While Lucious is making his moves and terrifying people all over the place— I can't even wait!" Sidibe told E! (via Christian Post). "Somebody from his past is going to come back and for the first time you're going to see Lucious scared."
