Did y’all see this one coming?!

If you’re like me, 2019 felt like an entire decade to you! So much has happened it’s hard to recall what happened when. Although it happened in the early days of the New Year, the entire Jussie Smollet situation was STILL one of the craziest stories of the whole year.

Now almost 365 days later, and after being fired from the show, word on the street is Empire may welcome Jussie back for it’s 6th and final season of the show. FOX is allegedly considering bringing the actor’s character back for the last season because they think the story should end cohesively.

Brett Mahoney, Showrunner for Empire, spoke to TVLine saying, “It would be weird in my mind to end this family show and this family drama of which he was such a significant part of without seeing him. It’s fair to say it’s being discussed, but there’s no plan as of yet to bring him back. There’s been no decision made.”

If you don’t watch the show, after Lee Daniel’s spoke out about the decision to remove Jussie after the allegations that he staged the alleged homophobic and racist attack against him; his character Jamal disappeared abruptly for the the last two episodes of season five and it was said he went on a honeymoon with his husband Kai and then decided to relocate to London.

No other comments have been made about the decision but we’ll def keep you updated with the tea on this one!
