Jussie Smollett Not Returning For Empire’s 6th Season!


Empire has been renewed for its 6th season, but Jussie Smollett will not be a part of it.

“By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to ‘Empire,’” Fox Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television said in a statement.

There had been rumors that the actor would not return to the series after being accused of hiring fake hit men to attack him, charges against Smollett were dropped by Chicago police but the city of Chicago has filed suit against him to recoup charges for the investigation.
