i guess jussie smollett and i will be getting our resumes together.
“empire” is going to return for a season 6,
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.
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.
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.
