Jussie Smollett isn’t finished yet. According to Taraji P. Henson, the actor will be returning to Empire despite the drama surrounding the alleged racist and homophobic attack he claims he was a victim of.

Reports TMZ:

Taraji dropped the news Thursday after Joy Behar straight-up asked on “The View” if Jussie’s gonna be on the show — currently in hiatus — next season. Taraji didn’t beat around the bush saying, “Yes. I haven’t heard anything else.” There is, of course, wiggle room here — she may not be looped in.

The fifth season of “Empire” wrapped up last week but there’s been no official word on whether season 6 is a go … but Taraji made it sound as if it’s all but official.

Check out the vid … Taraji’s also asked if she still talks to Jussie. Her answer might surprise you. Or not.

It is what it is.

No word is Smollett cut the Chicago PD that check yet, though.
