Things are not looking good for Jamal Lyon. According to Variety, Jussie Smollett will not be returning for the sixth and final season of FOX’s Empire.
Smollett plays Jamal Lyon on the music drama alongside fellow cast-members Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Bryshere Y. Gray, and Trai Byers. Smollett has been absent from the FOX series since earlier this year as a result of legal troubles.
On Twitter, Empire co-creator Lee Daniels confirmed Smollett will not appear in the TV show’s upcoming sixth and final season. Read his post below:
