Fox announced season 6 will be the final season of Empire.


Suge Knight gets out of prison....suspends Lucious upside down over the side of the Empire building until Cookie signs over the Empire catalog to Death Row Records.....The Lyon family returns to poverty, but realize they are happier poor than when they were wealthy.

It makes sense now why they picked up Smollett's option for season 6 instead of just releasing him outright. Articles are saying there no plans to bring him back but I expect he'll be back at some point to bring some closure to the series.

he will be back beyond any unforeseen events between now and then in my opinion. It may not be the first few episodes, but my guess is he is back at least for the home stretch of episodes.

Curious as to why Smollett's option was picked up? From what I've read there are no plans to include him in the series. I wonder what the option guarantees include? Are they contractually obligated?

Judge orders records in Smollett court case be unsealed and made public.

LINK

It looks like Smollett and his attorneys press tour proclaiming his innocence after his charges were dropped came back to bite them.

Quote:
Smollett, however, immediately held a press conference and professed his innocence, saying, "I've been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I was accused of."

Smollett's attorneys also did multiple national TV interviews characterizing the decision to drop the charges as evidence of his innocence.

The actor's attorneys argued in court on May 16 that the records in the case should remain sealed to maintain Smollett's right to privacy.

"These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone," Watkins wrote in his ruling, referring to the media blitz Smollett and his attorneys went on in the wake of the charges being dismissed.

"While the court appreciates that the defendant was in the public eye before the events that precipitated this case, it was not necessary for him to address this so publicly and to such an extent," Watkins wrote. "By doing so, the Court cannot credit his privacy interest as good cause to keep the case records sealed."

This should be interesting. When they say unseal records -- what information exactly would they be unsealing, does anyone know? Like, interview transcripts and stuff like that?

that is my understanding...everything from interview transcripts, internal communication, notes, images....anything and everything that was cataloged during the investigation.
