Taraji P. Henson Says Jussie Smollett Will Return to 'Empire'

Jussie Smollett ain’t out of a job in Hollywood … at least according to Taraji P. Henson who says the embattled actor is slated to return to “Empire” … assuming it officially gets greenlit for season 6.

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.

As you know … prosecutors dropped Jussie’s case but he’s still in the city of Chicago’s crosshairs.
