Season Six; FOX Series to End with 2019-20 Season

Season Six; FOX Series to End with 2019-20 Season”

Fox announced Monday that music drama "Empire's" recently announced sixth season will be the show's last. Add Jussie Smollett as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Jussie Smollett news, video, and analysis from ABC News. We'll have more information about the broadcaster's menu of upcoming programme when they present their upfront presentation to advertisers from New York's Beacon Theater later this afternoon.

When pressed on whether Jussie Smollett would be returning for the show's final season, Collier said, "At this point, we have no plans for that".

"There's an option to have Jussie in the series but we have no plans for that", reiterated Collier on the call when asked about Smollett's Empire future.

Smollett, 36, was charged in February with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report.

Collier's announcement comes as a Chicago judge is slated to decide if a special prosecutor is needed to investigate why the state prosecutor's office dropped charges accusing Smollett of staging the attack.

The show's fifth season ended with a game-changing split between Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious (Terrence Howard), and showrunner Brett Mahoney has promised that fans can expect some major fallout from that development in the next season. It's unclear if showrunners will let the character remain absent-being that Jamal was last seen taking off for his honeymoon-or if his character will be killed off in some fashion.

Police determined Smollett set up the attack and paid the brothers - who both acted in small roles on "Empire" - $3,500 to carry out the supposed beating. But the divestiture of the 20th Century Fox Television studio also diminishes the relative importance of shows that had once made a killing on the backend; as such, the value of once seemingly bulletproof properties such as "Empire" has been greatly diminished.

Since last season, Empire has lost approximately half of its viewing audience, most likely due in part to the Smollett fracas.

The reason Empire is ending now? Collier said on the call that the decision to end Star was "difficult".

"We really are trying to go out guns blazing".
