Clayne Crawford Breaks Silence on 'Lethal Weapon' Firing

Clayne Crawford Hilarie Burton

Fox announced Sunday it has renewed its action-drama Lethal Weapon for a third season, but without Clayne Crawford, who starred in the first two seasons.

Though details are still being worked out, Scott has been confirmed to be playing a new character ends up partnering with Murtaugh (Damon Wayans).

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already incredible cast", said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn.

FOX has chose to renew its action drama series Lethal Weapon for a third season, but it's not exactly that cut and dry.

During the visit, the Chinese premier called for a more lasting, stable bilateral relationship. Sadayuki Sakakibara, chairman of Japan Business Federation, also took part in the event.

The good news first is that Lethal Weapon is definitely coming back for a third season. It seems FOX has made a decision to do the latter, and Seann William Scott has landed his first-ever network series role. As the show got closer to cancellation, Crawford took to Instagram to apologize, but blamed his behaviour on the alleged safety hazards on set. Warner Bros. alerted Fox to the issue and told the network they coudn't keep the actor on if the show if renewed - even just from a financial standpoint it would put a studio at risk.

Lethal Weapon was something of a bubble show for a renewal, averaging a 1.7 rating and a multi-platform audience of 8.6 million, but the series does well internationally.

Fox has chose to bring back Lethal Weapon, but not its star. The show is based on the hit movie franchise, and stars Damon Wayans, Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney and Michelle Mitchenor. But following his two counts of misbehaviour he has now been officially replaced, and the newbie will be American Pie actor Seann William Scott. Television producing in association with Lin Pictures and Good Session Productions. Naturally, there are exceptions (Fargo, Hannibal, Bates Motel, Westworld), but I wasn't exactly that jazzed about Lethal Weapon.

The action drama is executive produced by Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG. Lethal Weapon is now the only show produced outside of Fox counterpart 20th TV on the network's 2018-19 roster.
