Is Empire Officially Done With The Jamal Lyon Character?

Jussie Smollett's character will not return for Empire's last season.

(AllHipHop Rumors) Not matter what is going on in a given day, Jussie Smollett will find his way into the news. This story is not going any damn where. But Smollett is officially off the upcoming season of Empire.

Way Back in April, the execs at Fox confirmed reports that actor Jussie Smollett would not be part of the final season of 'Empire' after he was charged with filing a false police report lying about being a victim of racial hate crime that he allegedly made everything up himself.

This week, Empire was back in production. The production crew was spotted filming shots of the upcoming scene near the scene where the alleged crime took place. Oh the irony!

According to reports the Empire production team were escorted by local authorities for the early Monday morning shoot just one block away from the location Jussie Smollett claimed he was done in. What would be crazy if Empire would use Jussie’s legal battle as a part of the season’s story-line!

Jussie's character, Jamal Lyon, will not be killed like what happens in too many situations like this. According to reports, Jamal Lyon will go off to celebrate his honeymoon and he never returns.

Whatever happens to Jussie’s character, this will the final season of Empire. Hopefully, Jussie can get his ish together and move on after all this.
