Empire will end its roller-coaster run on Fox after the upcoming sixth season, the network announced Monday, ahead of its Upfront presentation in the afternoon. One of the great benefits of announcing a final season is to give the fans the ending they deserve.
Speaking to reporters during a press call Monday, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier revealed that Season 6 will be the show's last.
"We're turning the final season of Empire into a large television event". "There's an option to have Jussie in the series but we have no plans for that", he said, noting the series' writers have yet to start working on the Season 6 script.

"The award-winning drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes risky world of hip-hop music has generated chart-topping hits, and socially relevant storylines, introduced "Boo Boo Kitty" into the zeitgeist and delivered over-the-top OMG moments weekly". The series revolves around the Empire Entertainment company, founder Lucious Lyon (Howard), his three sons (Gray, Smollett, and Byers), and their mother, Cookie (Henson).
Will Jussie Smollett be back?
During last season, Smollett, 36, who is gay and black, claimed that he was the victim of an attack that he said was racially and politically motivated, as well as homophobic. However, it looks like those efforts were made in vain. The actor had been written out of the last two episodes of Season 5 following his legal controversy in which he was accused of faking a hate crime attack against himself.
Smollett claimed a pair of masked attackers yelled "this is MAGA country" - a reference to President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" 2016 campaign slogan - put a noose around his neck, and poured a substance that smelled like bleach on him while beating him in a Chicago street around 2 a.m. January 29 in near zero temperatures.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
