All jussie had to do was apologize instead of throwing his friends under the bus. That is basically a snitch.

Here's what I found on google. There may be a season 6 and Smollett is in the cast. LINK

I didn't click on accept or learn more. You can scroll through the article to read it without doing so.

I have seen no signs of his exit. That said, the last time I looked at the shows ratings, I am shocked it was renewed.

I am too. It's been on a continuous decline in ratings. It hasn't been renewed yet.

I think Fox11's lack of interesting shows may be the reason it may be renewed.

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.

Schmuckkets Not Returning


Barring the civil case going horribly wrong for him, he'll be back. Fox is just keeping things on the download until things blow over, hence the extension.

I won't miss Jussie. I never connected with his character. Curious as to how and if they write him out.

If I was Kim Foxx, I would probably resign. She is currently fighting off subpoenas and the appointment of a special prosecutor, and I think there is already an internal investigation underway. Taking down elected officials is a team sport in Chicago, and I would not be surprised if it all kind of went away if she resigned....and I doubt she is holding onto her office either way.

Smollett wasn't in the last episode. He was on his honeymoon. It might be an extended honeymoon. Next week's the finale. I don't think he'll be in it. Last episode said one Lyon will take his last breath in the season finale. That's gotta be Jamal.

It seems like Andre is the obvious choice....which makes me think it may not be him. I was thinking if they killed off Andre, then Jamal was gone for good or an extended time....it would just be Lucious, Hakeem and Cookie....and I do not think that works at all. The whole show is about the family.

I think that's something some viewers don't comprehend.

I bet my rod Jamal is the one who goes fishing. Writers closed the last installment with Andre on the floor twitching. Previews had him in a hospital bed, then a coffin segment. I think that was a teaser.

first I thought about Lucious's mom (Leah Walker) or Kingsley....but neither of them have the Lyon name. Rhonda took her last breath a few seasons ago.....and Bella and Prince are too young.

Smollett's been written out already. He's gotta be the one in the casket.

I think it could go either way. If Schmuckkets situation continues to be toxic, then they can just have him fall in front of a subway train in London. If his situation seems palatable, then they just off Lucious's mom in the insane asylum. Or if they really want to have fun, they can just shoot Hakeem again and get rid of the shows most boring character. When it comes to killing off one of the Lyons, it's a target rich environment. Tasha is really the only untouchable because her poor decisions are central to all the families foibles.

Ok. I have to do the honorable thing, and stop watching this show. They not only took the weakest possible way out to close the season, they literally lied to us. They told us a Lyon would take his last breath this week.....Kingsley was never a Lyon.

I didn't think Andre was going to die and he needed a heart. Since Smollett was being written out I thought he might be the donor. I thought he might die in a plane crash or something. As the finale progressed Kingsley committing suicide wasn't a surprise. He was a Lyon by blood. He was the only Lyon left to be the one. Cookie lied to Lucious about sleeping with Damon Cross. Will Becky get her company off the ground and be a challenge to Empire? They didn't kill Jamal, will he return next season? Writers left enough mystery to bring some fans back.

Dwight Walker changed his name to Lucious Lyons. The name doesn't negate the blood line.

Dwight Walker is now Lucious Lyons. The name doesn't negate the blood line.


again...if they would have said that one of Lucious sons would take his last breath or something similar, fine....but they promoted a Lyon would take their last breath. Then they sold out and killed off a new character that was a son he never knew about, that had never held or was recognized as a Lyon.

Also, really? You are going to tell me that if a Hatfield started going by the name McCoy.....his offspring would have McCoy blood? pulease......

Kingsley was one of Lucious's sons. He was a son from another mother.

If a Hatfield started going by the name McCoy his offspring's would have Hatfield blood. You know that, it's biological.

They renewed it for a 6th year? That's a surprise. The ratings have been continuously declining .
