Empire is coming for season 6 but Jussie Smollett not coming

Fox TV series Empire will be back for season six but the sad part is, Jussie Smollett will not be coming back.

This was made known in a statement by the media giant on Tuesday.

“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.'”

This cannot be unconnected with the ongoing civil case between the actor and the City of Chicago.

Smollett is being sued for the costs of the investigation, wherein the actor was accused of allegedly faking a racist homophobic attack against him.
