[ # ] Lee Daniels says Jussie Smollett will not be back
June 4th, 2019 under Jussie Smollett

Variety reported that the writers from Empire are coming up with different storylines that include the return of Jamal later on in the season. Well, Lee Daniels, the show’s creator saw the headline, and he had an update for the trade magazine. He wrote, “@Variety @JoeOtterson This is not factual. Jussie will NOT be returning to Empire. -LD.”

This would be the first time that anyone has acknowledges that he will not be back. Up until now, his return was left very open ended. As in, they said he was contracted for the final season, but there are no plans to bring him back. It seems like now the decision has been made.

I think they made the right choice because his return would be too much of a distraction. They need to focus on making the show as crazy as possible. Which you know it is going to be.
