Good news if you’re an Empire fan! The show will be back for another season BUT… Jussie Smollett will not be.
Fox’s official statement: “By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season 6, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to ‘Empire.'”
Looks like Fox wants to keep Jussie hanging around just in case, most likely to see what happens with his civil case with the city of Chicago.
I guess we’ll have to see how this plays out!
