Besides this, Jason Mitchell, playing the role of Sonja’s son was dropped from the show after following sexual assault accusations.

Several women, including Tiffany Boone, accused him. Jason was subjected to an HR training program, eventually forcing Showtime to cut the ties with the actor.

As the show gears up for its third season, it is still not known how Jason’s departure and Sonja’s legal issues will affect the storyline on the show.
