Looks like the fate of 'Empire' could be effected by everything going on with Jussie Smollett! According to TMZ, anxiety is high among the "Empire" cast and crew, because Fox has yet to renew the show for a sixth season.
Lee Daniels has already announced that Smollett's character, Jamal, has been removed from that last two episode of this current season 5.
Sources of TMZ say that in the case of the show being renewed, the higher-ups have expressed major concern about Smollett's character returning and even cast members as well.
I doubt we'll see his return on the show, but I think it's unfortunate that his legal situation could effect the fate of the entire show that they've built.
