Clayne Crawford Wishes 'Lethal Weapon' Well After Renewal

Clayne Crawford Wishes 'Lethal Weapon' Well After Renewal

Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen. Crawford was accused of behaving badly on the set and he admitted via Instagram to two issues.

A premiere date for Season 3 has not been set yet. Crawford wrote on Instagram hours after Fox and Warners confirmed he would not be returning for the newly announced third season.

Clayne had been disciplined twice for poor behaviour, both incidences saw him reacting with anger to situations which led to him seeking therapy and, on one occasion, donate a portion of his pay packet to the other party. Another said, "That no official words have been spoken, just rumors spread by the tabloids". Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement.

Seann William Scott, best known for playing the randy Stifler in the 1999 comedy "American Pie", will replace Clayne Crawford as Damon Wayans' co-star on Fox's "Lethal Weapon". The first two seasons are available to stream on Hulu.

Fox has made a decision to bring back Lethal Weapon, but not its star. While not going into exact details, we're told that in each instance there were disciplinary actions taken by the studio and the behavior continued. "Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention Lethal Weapon is receiving because of these incidents".

Instead, Fox has hired American Pie and Road Trip actor Seann William Scott in his first series-regular TV role to join the show. With Scott replacing Crawford, the show won't have to figure out whether Lethal Weapon could continue without a Riggs, and will give it a go with Scott being a maniac with a badge. For these fans, there simply is no show without Crawford to star as the loose cannon Martin Riggs - a character which was originated by Mel Gibson in the four-part film series of the '80s and '90s. Lethal Weapon is now the only show produced outside of Fox counterpart 20th TV on the network's 2018-19 roster.
