Written by admin on January 9, 2020
Despite initial reports about Jussie Smollett’s possible return to the popular TV show, it has now been confirmed that the embattled actor will not be returning to Empire for the show’s finale. This was made known by Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn, the TV network known for airing the series.
“We’re not going to bring Jussie back to the show. There were a number of factors that went into the decision to not bring him back. There were many points of view about if he should come back or if he shouldn’t. As hard as a decision as that was, for us… it felt like it was in the best interests of the show and the cast.” Thorn said.
