Jussie’s character may be killed off “Empire”

Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” Character May Be Killed Off Or Recast, Says Sources

Much has happened since FOX’s hit series Empire last aired new episodes—and we all know what that is. Jussie Smollett, one of the show’s main characters, caused a media firestorm that rocked the country in late January when he claimed that he was physically attacked as the victim of a hate crime. So, much has happened in the case since then, most notably Smollett being indicted on 16 felony counts due to being accused of staging the entire incident. All of this drama could mean trouble for one of the biggest ratings hits on TV.

Empire is set to return for the second half of its 5th season on March 13th at 8PM on FOX, but many industry insiders are questioning whether star Jussie Smollett’s current issues will hurt the show’s return—specifically its ratings. Will audiences decide to stay away from tuning into the series because of Smollett’s current cloud of drama? Or will that very thing make them more curious? Time will tell, and pretty quickly, when overnight ratings are revealed.
