It seems like Jussie Smollett’s burdens are starting to affect the people around him. Fox may not renew Empire.
The actor is facing some serious charges, and all but seems downhill from here. Smollett was considered the face of the hit show “Empire”. However, the drama has seemed to be more off-screen as of late because of “Jamal Lyons”. Furthermore, it is believed that the actor’s false hate crime claims could be the reason behind a possible closure of the set.
Jussie Smollett Renew?
It is being reported that Fox Network, has yet to renew the show for another season. Leaving many people to believe that we might see the last of the sitcom going forward. Just last week a Grand Jury hit Jussie Smollet with 16 counts. Because of the high profile case, the actor was cut from the season finale. Above all Jussie Smollet was dropped from Empire.
“Jamal” has been written out of the final episodes of this season, but Lee Daniels hasn’t stated whether or not the character will make a return. Sources have reportedly said Jamal will be “out of the country.”
Up to this point, many believe that Jussie used racism to stage an attack and increase his salary. The actor is still claiming he is innocent and that the attack did happen.
