Jussie Smollett Not Returning to 'Empire,' Says Lee Daniels

Empire co-creator Lee Daniels, who has never explicitly said that Jussie Smollett won't return to the Fox series, tweeted Tuesday that the actor won't reprise his role.

His tweet, posted in response to a report which stated that the Empire writers were preparing for his return on the show's sixth and final season, read, "This is not factual. Jussie will NOT be returning to Empire."

Back in March, Daniels posted an emotional video on social media in which he spoke about the "pain and anger" he has felt since Smollett was accused of a hate crime in January. Following the alleged hate crime hoax and subsequent arrest in Chicago, the actor did not appear on the show's final two episodes of the fifth season.
