Cast members are worried as Fox has yet to renew the show.

Two men were questioned and released over the attack and Jussie was later charged and arrested for filing a false police report.
He has been accused of ‘orchestrating’ the attack – allegations he has continuously denied. He was released after posting bail, but is now facing 16 charges, including one Class 4 felony charge for disorderly conduct.
TMZ reports that Empire cast and crew are now growing concerned over the show’s future amid the ongoing case involving in Jussie – especially as the show is yet to be picked up for a sixth season.
