“Empire” Spin-Off Still A Possibility
While fans may be saying goodbye to Empire this fall, their story may be far from being completely over. Fox’s CEO Charlie Collier alluded to the possibility that there may be more of this story in the future.
On the potential of spinoffs, he says:
“We’re in the Lee Daniels and Danny Strong business, if there is more story to tell we want to hear it”.
While the last season will air this fall, Collier re confirmed that Jussie Smollett still will not return.
Jussie played Jamal Lyon since the inception of the show. Earlier this year, he was involved in a controversy after he claimed to have been a victim of an alleged hate crime assault against.
