Good news for fans of "Empire" … the show returns for season 6. The bad news for Jasseines Smollett – he will not return.
Fox just issued the following statement … "By mutual agreement, the studio is in talks to extend the option to Jassim Smollett for 6 seasons, but currently there are no plans on the character of Jamal to return to the" Empire. "
Yes … it sounds strange that Fox wants to keep hanging Jussie, just in case, but this case. This can be … Fox hedging their bets to see what happens in a civil case in which the city of Chicago suing actor for expenditure on research. The result of this case – Jussie will be tried for allegedly falsifying the "attack". Maybe, if he wins, F reconsider.
As we already reported, Jussie was lunch meeting with Execs «Empire», and for a while it seemed that he could come back, but now, it seems, Jussie need to find another job.
Here the free end of … picking up / extend option Jussie, it would seem, they have to pay him something for the contract. In the end, he could not take another concert, if it can be called back into the "Empire". Thus, Jussie will get paid for not working on the show?
