‘Empire’ will end with Season 6

Empire Season 5 Fall Finale

Along with that, Jussie Smollett will not be involved in the show. That's true and it's a whole 'nother story.

Fox announced Monday that music drama "Empire's" recently announced sixth season will be the show's last.

"We're excited to see the show go out with a bang and, really, that's what we've been focused on", said Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier.

Now going into the last season, there are questions about actor Jussie Smollett and if he will now be returning to the show to bid a final farewell as Jamal.

Since last season, Empire has lost approximately half of its viewing audience, most likely due in part to the Smollett fracas.

Jussie Smollett, a cast member in the TV series "Empire", attends the Fox Networks Group 2018 programming presentation afterparty in NY on May 14, 2018.

The actor told police that the primary attacker "was wearing a ski mask that covered his entire face, with the exception of the area around his eyes, by which (Smollett) could tell the attacker was white-skinned", according to a civil lawsuit field by the city of Chicago.

Prosecutors inexplicably dropped the 16 felony counts against Smollett several weeks later, a move criticized by police, the mayor, and a state prosecutors group.

"We are turning the final season of Empire into a large television event". However, Smollett was written out of the final two episodes of Season 5 amid the Chicago Police Department's investigation, which left many wondering if he would be back next season. "Six years is a pretty remarkable run for a drama series and we feel good about it".

When pressed, Collier said there is an option to include him in the series "but at this point we have no plans for that".

At the time of the renewal announcement, there were "no plans" for the actor to return as Jamal Lyon, though Smollett's contract had been extended to keep the option open.

Supporters had asked Fox to bring Smollett back to the show, including leading cast members Taraji Henson and Terrence Howard.

The final round of the musical series is slated to be filled with "drama, shocking surprises and more jaw-dropping moments" as fans prepare to say their goodbyes to the Lyon family, including patriarch and Empire Records owner Lucious Lyon-played by Terrance Howard-and Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Lyon.
