JUSSIE SMOLLETT OFFICIALLY REMOVED FROM EMPIRE (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS)

The show’s co-creator and executive producer — Lee Daniels — immediately shut down any speculation.

On Tuesday, Daniels took to Twitter to respond to a tweet by Variety, which read: “‘Empire’ Writers Prepping for Jussie Smollett’s Return in Season 6.” The accompanying post also had a story attached to it.

 

In May, Fox announced that its hit drama would end after Season 6 and that there were still no plans to bring back Smollett’s character.

One month prior, Fox Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV issued a statement, explaining: “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.'”
