‘Empire’ to be Cancelled After Next Season

The show on which Jussie Smollett starred will end after its sixth season.

The Fox show on which actor Jussie Smollett played a lead role will be cancelled after next season, its sixth.

“The reign of Empire on Fox is coming to an end next year,” according to Deadline. “Just two weeks after the Charlie Collier-run Fox Entertainment renewed Lee Daniels and Danny Strong’s hip hop drama for a sixth season and guided Jussie Smollett toward the exit door, it was announced Monday during Fox’s pre-upfront call that the self-described “groundbreaking cultural phenomenon” will be canceled once Season 6 is done next year.”

The show was marred with controversy after Smollett was accused of committing a hate crime hoax against himself. Eventually, he was charged with 16 felonies, all of which were suspiciously dropped by State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, much to the chagrin of the Chicago Police.

A Chicago police union is asking the Justice Department to investigate Cook County Prosecutor Kim Foxx for potentially seeking to spike the investigation into Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax.

The Chicago-area Fraternal Order of Police are questioning whether Foxx sought to have the investigation stunted by requesting that the local authorities hand the case over the FBI.

Foxx, the elected State’s Attorney for Cook County, then recused herself from the case in the thick of the investigation in February, citing “familiarity” with individuals involved in the incident.

Seeking to place an investigation into the hate hoax in the hands of the FBI could have been an effective plan to hush up the incident.

The federal agency has been hit hard by accusations of institutional leftist bias, and it’s possible elements within the Bureau could consigned a criminal case against Smollett- who now faces felony disorderly conduct charges related to lying to the police- to the dustbin.

An aide to former First Lady Michele Obama reached out to Foxx about the case during the investigation, expressing a preference for the FBI to marshal the investigation.

Smollett was not slated to be a part of season six. Deadline cited Smollett as the reason for the shows poor ratings during season five.

“Amidst other long-in-the-tooth issues, Empire was pummeled this year by ratings lows and the ever-spiraling controversy over the January 29 presumed hate crime Smollett is now alleged to have perpetrated against himself,” according to the report.

BIZARRE: Hulu Developing Alternate History Show Where Hillary Clinton Wins the Presidency

Dream on, liberals.

Published

on

The streaming video service Hulu is developing a show featuring an alternative history timeline in which Hillary Clinton became President.

The show will be based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s book “Rodham,” a fiction book about Hillary never meeting Bill and then becoming President on her own merits.

Variety describes the show as “telling the story of an ambitious young woman, developing her extraordinary mind in the latter part of the 20th century, moving from idealism to cynicism and all the way back again.”

Sarah Treem, who co-created the series “The Affair,” and also worked on “In Treatment,” “House of Cards,” and “How to Make It in America,” will be writing and executive producing on the show. Executive producer Warren Littlefield, The Littlefield Company, and Fox 21 Television Studios will also be involved with the project.

Big League Politics has reported on how Hillary and her daughter, Chelsea, are setting their sights on Hollywood to keep their disgraced family’s image in the limelight:

Hillary Clinton is set to launch her own film and TV production company with her daughter Chelsea, according to reporting from Bloomberg.

The Clinton film studio will reportedly feature stories “by and about women.” It’s likely the neoliberal political dynasty would publish content with an abundance of feminist themes, as if Hollywood was failing to produce enough already.

The plan by the Clintons to enter the world of film and television could finally signal their departure from American political life. The family has been a de facto presence in national politics since the early 1990’s, although they’ve been forced into an early retirement of sorts after Hillary’s defeat in the 2016 Presidential election.

The Obama family is engaged in a similar venture, having entered into a film production contract with streaming giant Netflix. It may not be entirely coincidental for the Clintons to follow along a similar path, having a long-standing rivalry with Obama dating back to the 2008 Democratic Primary. Then-Senator Obama defeated Hillary in a contest for the Democratic nomination, running on an anti-war platform he would forget upon arriving in office.

The Clintons and Obamas have every right to add their voices to an already saturated market of culturally progressive and lecture-full film production. However, now that they’ve largely departed the national political scene, they may be surprised to find out that the American people feel no obligation to pay them any attention.

“Rodham” will be more entertainment designed to deranged liberal cat ladies who cannot accept that Donald Trump is their president.
