Fox's 'Lethal Weapon' Renewed Without Clayne Crawford; Seann William Scott to Star

Fox's 'Lethal Weapon' Renewed Without Clayne Crawford; Seann William Scott to Star

'Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen. "Good Luck nxt season!"

The news comes days after Crawford was sacked from the Fox drama following bad behavior on set.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already unbelievable cast. Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen".

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.

Crawford was recently fired from the series following two on-set incidents related to concerns over working conditions. Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement. "Matt Miller, his incredible team and everyone at Warner Bros. have been tremendous partners, and we're thrilled to bring this show back for another season".

"Lethal Weapon" now averages a 1.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, which includes a week's worth of delayed viewing where available from Nielsen. I wasn't that jazzed about Lethal Weapon 3 or 4, so the prospect of a procedural reboot wasn't doing much for me. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved.

While Crawford weighed in on the news, star Damon Wayans, who is remaining on the show, turned his Twitter page private. It seems FOX has made a decision to do the latter, and Seann William Scott has landed his first-ever network series role. "When everyone seems to know your future but you".

Lethal Weapon, as the youngest and highest rated of the three Warner Bros TV drama series for Fox, was considered a shoo-in for renewal until the behind-the scene problems involving Crawford threw the pickup in limbo. As of just a few days ago, Crawford's Instagram posts also revealed he hadn't heard anything from the network and expressed hope he wasn't being fired. "Dang", he captioned a flustered-looking photo.
