jussie smollett is as unemployed as i am.

i guess jussie smollett and i will be getting our resumes together.
empire” is going to return for a season 6,
but unfortunately,
he won’t be.
tmz” had to font this…

The good news for “Empire” fans … the show is coming back for Season 6. The bad news for Jussie Smollett — he’s not coming back.

Fox just issued the following 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.'” 

Yep … sounds weird, that Fox wants to keep Jussie hanging just in case, but that’s the deal. It could be … Fox is hedging its bets, to see what happens in the civil case in which the City of Chicago is suing the actor for the costs of the investigation. The upshot of that case — Jussie will be tried for allegedly faking the “attack.”  Perhaps if he wins, Fox will reconsider.

i have a feeling he’ll be back,
but it’ll be after everything is done.
meaning,
they’ll keep him as a wild card.
if everythng works out in the future,
he’ll find his way back on a later season.
if not,
they can already just part ways without the brouhaha.

Will that show even last that long?

i don’t know many who still watch.
i stopped after it started doing too much,
but if they were to get their storylines in order,
i could make a future return as jussie would.
we shall see.

  1. They had the first Black male same-sex marriage ever shown during primetime last week. I wish Jussie had wrecked his career like this; he has a load of talent, and it seems like he just had a breakdown of some sort, leading to this stunt. It does happen, but the response has been out of all proportion because he linked it to the MAGA people. He should focus on his music, move to France or the UK or someplace where he’s less notorious, and do his thing. He mainly harmed his career and that of the muscle wolves who agreed to participate. That is, unless the story is something else we don’t know yet. I hope they all get some psychological help and get on with their lives.

  2. Well I’m glad they extended his contract I read that he still gets paid since he is under contract.He can work on his music.I personally won’t watch if he is not on the show.Lastly the show is doing good according to Deadline.com that’s why it gets renewed season after season after season.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
