We're so excited!

It feels like we've been living without our favorite television shows for literal years… but that's all about to change thanks to the Fall TV lineup.

With both new series and returning shows scheduled to premiere all throughout September, what better way to gear up for our soon-to-be watercooler moments than with the stars themselves?!

The Wrap put together a pretty extensive list of TV's hottest new stars — Katharine McPhee, Keke Palmer, Jamie Alexander, Justin Baldoni, Jack Falahee, Ryan Guzman, Mehcad Brooks, Rachel Bloom and Rebecca Rittenhouse — and Jussie Smollett from Empire!

So how exactly is Jussie prepping for Season Two of his hit FOX musical drama??

"Some of the teams have shifted, and we'll see what happens. Jamal has grown a great deal.

I really like my job, so I'm not sharing any spoilers. He's really changing. He's dealing with the pressures of fame and success, and he's definitely not what he was in the first season."

Fair enough.

But the 32-year-old did share a little bit of his own insight on the power behind Empire, saying:

"All the glitz and glamour of showbiz and celebrity… it very much deals with the issues of the nation and the world that we live in today. It's a great chance to do something really cool."

You just know we're gonna be tuned in for Empire's second season premiering September 23 on FOX.
