False Alarm: Jussie Smollett Is Not Resigning From FOX’s ‘Empire’

Next Wednesday (May 18th), Fox’s will air the season two finale of their hit show “Empire,” and the cliffhanger on the show left viewers wondering if Jussie Smollett’s character, Jamal Lyon, would be a gonner.

Then after last night’s episode, Smollett posted a tweet that sounds like he was throwing up the deuces to the show for good.




But Entertainment Weekly confirms that Smollett isn’t going anywhere. They report he still remains under contract, so maybe Smollett simply plans on taking a hiatus to focus on a music career and other movie roles.
