Fox Empire Show Runners In Talks Of Jussie Smollett’s Possible Return For Final Season!

#Cousins can you believe it has been almost five years since #FoxEmpire first hit our television screens? From the very beginning each characters story has put us on an intense and emotional roller coaster ride, all the while securing a special place within our hearts. As we fast forward to today; the show is in the midst of wrapping up their last and final season. With new changes to the the overall story line and casting; we are forced to wonder how will thing’s ultimately leave off.

As previously reported #JussieSmollett was completely removed from the second half of season five. According to People Magazine; Fox Empire creator Lee Daniels axed Smollet’s character #JamalLyon after heat began to rise from his allegedly fabricated hate crime incident. However it has recently indicated that Lee could possibly have a change of heart.


“It would be weird in my mind to end this family show and this family drama of which he was such a significant part of without seeing him,” stated Empire show runner Brett Mahoney within a recent interview.

As of right now there has been no official statements made on behalf of the Fox broadcasting network. Though the show’s producers are currently within talks of reviving Jussie’s character for the finale, nothing has been finalized.
“It’s fair to say it’s being discussed, but there’s no plan as of yet to bring him back,” says Mahoney. “There’s been no decision made.”

Cousins do you think Jussie Smollet should be brought back?
