Get ready … Jussie Smollett is coming back to Empire! Taraji P. Henson dropped the news Thursday during her visit on “The View.”
Co-host Joy Behar didn’t beat around the bush and straight up asked if the embattled actor would be back on the show. Her response?
“Yes. I haven’t heard anything else.”
There is, of course, the big question of if the show will come back for a sixth season. The fifth season wrapped up last week but there’s been no official word on whether Fox has greenlit another season.
Henson made it sound as if it’s all but official. Taraji’s also asked if she still talks to Jussie.
As you know … prosecutors dropped Jussie’s case but Chicago PD are still pissed and want him to pay … literally.
