Taraji P. Henson Says Jussie Smollett Will Return To 'Empire'

Despite all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett being dropped, his legal troubles are far from over.

But according to Empire co-star Taraji P. Henson, he WILL return to the show.

She was asked during an interview on The View if she had spoken to him since the charges were dropped. "I talk to Jussie all the time,” she replied. “He’s doing well. We’re all doing well. The show is doing well.”

And even though the series has not yet been renewed for a sixth season, Henson talked about it as if it's pretty much a done deal.

When asked if Jussie would be returning, she responded with, "Yes. I haven’t heard anything else,” and then adding, “I haven’t heard anything.”

FOX and the Empire showrunners have yet to comment on the future of the series, and Jussie's involvement in it.
