Jamal to be removed from Empire season finale

The Fox show's executive co-creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong released a joint statement with their executive producers on Friday (February 22) to announce that they would "remove the role of 'Jamal' from the final two episodes of the season", effectively suspending Jussie while his case goes on.

 

Now though, TVLine reports that Daniels is backing an ambitious plan to recast the character of Jamal Lyon for future seasons so the character wouldn't have to be killed off. This option is apparently being actively considered by producers, but no decision has been made just yet.

 

Daniels's representative declined to comment on this latest news, as did a spokesperson for Empire.

Taraji said she would leave once it hits syndicated (100 episodes), by the time S5 ends it would be at 84 episodes. So ending it after season 6 wouldn’t be that uncommon

Have the character get burned up in an explosion, get him a face transplant, take off the bandages and do a recast like a soap.
