What would “Empire” be without the entire Lyon family?
Just when “Empire” leaves us with a cliffhanger episode on Wednesday night, Jussie Smollett aka Jamal Lyon, took to Twitter and hinted at leaving the show.
On the most recent episode of “Empire,” Jamal was accidentally shot with a bullet that was supposed to be for Luscious. The episode ended with Jamal in ICU, leaving all “Empire” fans on the edge of their seats, wondering if Jamal would survive.
A few hours after the show ended, Jussie took to Twitter:
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time w/@EmpireFOX. I love you all. Truth. Time 2 make a record & some movies. #Empire,” Smollett tweeted.
Is this his way of saying goodbye to ‘Empire?’ Are they killing him off? But why?
Even co-star Gabby Sidibe responded to Jussie in confusion, “@JussieSmollett Hey Buddy. You ok?”
So many questions and rumors have come from this sketchy tweet from Smollett.
Maybe this is just a publicity stunt for the show’s ratings, or maybe things are not working out behind the scenes. But whatever the case may be, Jussie is extremely talented and will go far in the industry whether he’s on “Empire” or not.
