LETHAL WEAPON Renewed For Third Season Seann William Scott Joins Cast

Lethal Weapon has been a solid hit for Fox, coming second in the network's drama ratings behind Empire. Producers were left to scramble to find a new actor to replace Crawford in the two-hander, with multiple stars passing on offers to join the Fox show until Scott engaged.

Crawford's behavior had left Lethal Weapon - one of Fox's better-performing dramas - on the bubble as many connected with the series (including, Wayans, sources note) have said they would rather not work with the actor. Warners on Sunday confirmed Crawford will not return to the drama with a statement: "Warner Bros". Scott will play a new role that is folded into the series to fill the shoes of the departed Riggs as Roger Murtaugh's (Damon Wayans) partner.

Prior to being fired, Crawford issued an apology and offered his side of the story, claiming he was reprimanded because he "reacted with anger to working conditions that did not feel safe", and revealed he was forced to undergo "studio-appointed therapy". The third season will get underway later this year.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already unbelievable cast", said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn in the announcement. The situation escalated to a point where Fox and Warner Bros.

Lethal Weapon has been renewed for Season 3, with Seann William Scott joining the show as the new co-lead.




"I have learned that Crawford has had a history of bad behavior on the show, and that he has been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment", Deadline reporter Nellie Andreeva wrote.

"Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention 'Lethal Weapon" is receiving because of these incidents'.

The is the first series regular role for Scott, who first broke out as part of the American Pie franchise but who has shown considerable range through films like Role Models, The Rundown, and Goon.

Season two averaged 8.6 million viewers.

"Lethal Weapon" is a production of Warner Bros.
