In a letter to executives, the leading cast of "Empire" pleaded for Jussie Smollett to return to the show.

The actor had all charges dropped against him by Cook Country prosecutors after he allegedly staged a hate crime against himself.

Deadline reports the letter was signed by main actors Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Bryshere Y. Gray, Trai Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, and Nicole Ari Parker. It was addressed to Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier, Disney TV Studios and ABC Entertainment Chairwoman Dana Walden, Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn, Lee Daniels, and "Empire" co-creator Danny Strong.

"We understand the past months have been difficult to process — sometimes the headlines brought more confusion than clarity, yet we now have a conclusion to this ordeal. Throughout Empire’s five seasons working with Jussie and watching how he has conducted himself throughout this traumatic event, we have come to know not just the character Jussie portrays, but also truly come to know Jussie’s personal character," the letter states.

"He is kind. He is compassionate. He is honest and above all he is filled with integrity. He is also innocent and no longer subject to legal uncertainty with the criminal charges against him having been dropped. We are confident in his lawyer’s assurance that the case was dismissed because it would not have prevailed," the letter continued.

The actors used his advocacy for LGBT youth and volunteer work at various organizations as examples of "who he really is as a leader."

"That is why we write today to ask you to keep Jussie on the cast so that we can all put this behind us and move forward. Thank you for taking time to hear us. It’s our hope that together we will move into our sixth season as the entire Empire family should," the letter concludes.
