Taraji P. Henson Says Jussie Smollett Is Set To Return To ‘Empire’
While making an appearance on The View recently, Taraji P. Henson talks her career and also advises on the return of fellow Empire star Jussie Smollett.
Following his recent arrest in Chicago, many assumed Smollett wouldn’t see a return to the show, but now that his criminal charges have been dropped by prosecution, it looks like he’s set to come back.
Additionally, Henson explains, “I talk to Jussie all the time. And he’s doing well. We’re all doing well. The show is doing well. We’re on hiatus right now. The writers are trying to figure out what the next season is going to look like, what our storyline is going to be. They’re trying to drum up some really good juicy stuff for you guys.” When asked if he’s to return, she says, “Yes. I haven’t heard anything else.”
