[ # ] Is Jussie Smollett being written off of Empire?
February 19th, 2019 under Empire, Jussie Smollett

Right now Jussie Smollett is persona non grata, and that leaves Fox in a lurch. What do they do with his character on Empire?

Right not they are in production on the second to last episode of the season and they were expecting Jamal Lyon to be a big part of it. Not anymore according to TMZ. They say he was supposed to be in nine scenes with a musical number, but now he is down to four. Depending what happens next in his case, as in did he stage his attack, he might be completely written out. The site says his scenes are scheduled to be shot at the end of the week. That means they have a few days to make that decision if they have to.

Which means the rumor of him being written off the show was a possible motive might become true even though it was not at that time.

While it is easier to change things in the last two episodes because they have not been filmed, it will be harder to edit him of the seven episodes that have not aired and have already been filmed. If that is what they choose to do.

It will be interesting to see what they will do next if he is in fact arrested for faking what he said was a hate crime. All they can do is take it one day at a time.
