Jussie Smollett Readies ‘Empire’ Return?

Published: Monday 23rd Dec 2019 by David

Jussie Smollett may be returning to ‘Empire.’

Learn more below…

Smollett was smudged out of the series after he was accused of hiring two Nigerian bodybuilders to beat him up on a cold winter’s night so he could convince the public that he was the victim of a racist assault.

Now, producers reveal that they are open to welcoming back as they write its final season.

Showrunner Brett Mahoney told TV Line…

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. It’s fair to say it’s being discussed, but there’s no plan as of yet to bring him back. There’s been no decision made.


Charges against the actor were dropped in March and he maintains that the allegations he is facing are false.

    Billboard Hot 100: #61(+21) My Oh My, @Camila_Cabello Feat. @DaBabyDaBaby [2 weeks]. *new peak*

    They hate to see it

    No promo
    No radio plays
    No music video
    No hype
    No buzz
    No shout outs from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter

    Another hit? Let’s wait and see. Fingers crossed.

    the ONLY reason why they are “interested” in bringing Jussie back is because the series is failing miserably.

    i honestly would REFUSE to lend my likeness to a team that was so quick to dismiss me in my darkest hour.

    Jussie is extremely intelligent. he will see through the bullsh|t.

    HOW the producers thought this final season would even be mildly successful without him or Hakeem is completely beyond my comprehension!

    Oh please! Obviously you had your head in the sand the whole time that evidence hardcore evidence at that has been shown all his Hollywood appears even know he’s a scumbag constantly lying through his teeth. His story is just another script and he knows how to Stage a scene with help from his buddies the two brothers or shall I say was. You don’t get 16 grand jury indictments because you were innocent. Kim Fox News if he stood trial that he would be jailed for sure. And we still have hope if that’s exactly what will happen with his lying ass

    Damn! I forgot Empire was back on! I gotta catch up.. I actually tuned in for last season so I’ll be checking them out this final season.

    ? Sidenote, I wonder do they regret taking #Star off the network? I think they secretly didn’t realize the impact of #Star until they canceled it. Smh. Each season got better and BETTER.

    I would love to see him return. What he did was very wrong but many people have done alot worse.

  8. Christina grassi December 24, 2019

  9. Kelley Connelly-Otto December 26, 2019
