Lethal Weapon Recasts Lead With Seann William Scott as New Character

Short answer Blame the NFL

Having been fired as a result of the renewal, Crawford posted a picture on Instagram offering his well wishes to the rest of the cast and congratulating them on the new season.

Lethal Weapon will return for Season 3 on Fox next season.

Shortly after the news was revealed, social media exploded with tuts and hisses from viewers who are still totally Team Clayne. Another said, "That no official words have been spoken, just rumors spread by the tabloids".

Crawford was sacked from the series after what executives described as repeated instances of "emotional abuse" of cast and crew members, dating back several months, for which the actor was repeatedly reprimanded. Crawford's behavior has led to other actors feeling uncomfortable with him continuing in the role.

"Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon".

Following reports that he'd created a hostile work environment on the set of Fox's Lethal Weapon, after which he issued an apology for jeopardizing the future of the series, Clayne Crawford has officially been replaced for the show's third season, and fans are not happy about the decision.

A number of actors were approached in the last couple of weeks. It's no masterpiece, but the chemistry between Crawford and Damon Wayans is infectious. It's not clear at this point which character he will play, but it does sound like it will be a new character who pairs up with Murtaugh.

"Lethal Weapon" airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox. As regular readers might know, I'm not always the most prominent advocate of TV shows based on movies. The actor recently apologized for two incidents for which he was reprimanded during the sophomore season.

Warning. The next paragraph contains spoilers about the Season 2 finale of Lethal Weapon. According to the reviews, Riggs was shot in the chest during the closing moments of the episode leaving his fate uncertain.

Crawford was dismissed from the series after a repeated showing of what execs and producers characterized as "repeated instances of emotional abuse of cast and crew members", that dated back several months.
