Here is what we have learned on WTF Happened to Jason Mitchell?
The decision to FIRE Mitchell was made after “producers had received information about the alleged off-set incident.” After an investigation, he was released from “The Chi” which was renewed for a 3rd season.
The dismissal from dramedy Desperados, a Good Universe production for Netflix, came first. I hear the decision was made after the producers had received information about an alleged off-set incident. The incident was investigated immediately and thoroughly, leading to Mitchell’s termination from Desperados.
