Fans of Jussie Smollett will be pleased to hear that he may be returning to the sixth and finale season of Empire.

"It would be weird in my mind to end this family show and this family drama of which he was such a significant part of without seeing him," showrunner Brett Mahoney said to TVline.

"It's fair to say it's being discussed, but there's no plan as of yet to bring him back. There's been no decision made."

Smollett was booted by the show after he was charged by the Chicago Police Department over an alleged hate crime hoax. Smollett was accused of paying the Nigerian Osundairo brothers to give him a beat down, and pour bleach over him on a cold Chicago night while he was heading to Subway.

Earlier this year, Lee Daniels shut down rumors that he would be returning to the show.
