Empire‘s Jussie Smollett has an exciting new role as a guest star in WGN America’s new thriller, Underground. The show centers on a group of slaves and their struggle for survival and freedom.

Smollett plays Josey, a runaway slave who has a difficult time trusting anybody, including those who want to help him along his journey to freedom. The all-star cast will include his sister Jurnee Smollett-Bell, True Blood star Adina Porter, and many others.

Underground is set to premiere in 2016.

Season two of Empire picks up right where season one left off with (spoiler) Lucious Lyon heading to jail. Thanks to a video creator Lee Daniels posted on his Instagram with new cast member Chris Rock and star Terrence Howard, fans were given a sneak peek of what’s coming up for Lyon behind bars.

Check out the video and see what clues you find.
