Fox renews 'Lethal Weapon,' replaces star with Seann William Scott

Seann William Scott

For his part, Crawford says he's grateful to have played the "dream role" of Riggs and wishes the continuing cast and crew the best of luck on the third season.

Fox Renews "Lethal Weapon" for season 3, but there's a controversial cast change in the works that has some fans seeing red. However, Crawford admitted himself in a statement on Instagram that he had been disciplined regarding two incidents on the set. "'Lethal Weapon' is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen".

A spokesperson for Warner Bros.

And then last week, TVLine broke the news that Warner Bros and Fox had chose to part ways with Crawford, and were actively searching for an actor to replace him.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already wonderful cast", said Michael Thorn, Fox's president of entertainment. As Fox aren't recasting the character, does this mean that Clayne Crawford's bad behavior has killed Martin Riggs? The situation escalated to a point where Fox and Warner Bros.

De Bruyne finished the season with 16 assists after teeing up Gabriel Jesus' late victor at Southampton . The Welshman was appointed on a short-term contract as successor to Mauricio Pellegrino in March.

Scott will be the new co-lead in Lethal Weapon. The axing follows two reports of bad behavior on the show's set, for which Crawford was forced to publicly apologize. In multi-platform average audience, Lethal Weapon averages 8.7 million (+105% vs. Live+Same Day), and is Fox's No. 2 returning drama behind Empire.

Besides "American Pie", Scott's credits include "Road Trip", "Role Models", "The Dukes of Hazzard", "The Rundown" and "Dude, Where's My Car?".

Lethal Weapon also stars Keesha Sharp as Trish Murtaugh, Chandler Kinney as Riana Murtaugh, Dante Brown as Roger Murtaugh Jr., Jordana Brewster as Dr. Maureen "Mo" Cahill, Michelle Mitchenor as Sonya Bailey and Johnathan Fernandez as Scorsese.

"Lethal Weapon" is a production of Warner Bros.

The replacement of a main character is a dramatic and risky move, especially when it involves the lead of an established series such as Lethal Weapon. Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz, and McG serve as executive producers.
