Good news, bad news for fans of Fox’s television show, “Empire.” The network announced that it will return this fall on Fox, but Jussie Smollett remains a question mark. But the really bad news? The next season will be its last.
Regarding Jussie’s future on the show, the network has said there’s an option to include him in the final season series “but at this point, they have no plans for that.” The only upside? Instead of the usual order of 18 episodes, fans will get 20.
“We are turning the final season into a large TV event — we are trying to go out guns a-blazing,” says Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier. “You allow fans to lean in and have the ending they deserve.”

The classic singing competition “American Idol” has been renewed for a third season at ABC. This will be the show’s 18th season overall, including the 15 seasons that aired on Fox before the show moved to ABC in 2018.
