'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 recently fired from the series following two on-set incidents related to concerns over working conditions.

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. To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love.

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. After clashes on set between star Clayne Crawford and Wayans, Crawford was sacked - and the show was in jeopardy.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson confirmed with The Wrap that Crawford's firing was because of the behavior complaints, prompting them to not renew his contract.

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.


Season two averaged 8.6 million viewers. Another said, "That no official words have been spoken, just rumors spread by the tabloids".

"Lethal Weapon" is based on the feature film franchise of the same name. Crawford's behavior has led to other actors feeling uncomfortable with him continuing in the role.

Lethal Weapon has been renewed for Season 3, with Seann William Scott joining the show as the new co-lead. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved.

Lethal Weapon was on the bubble for renewal already when the controversy surrounding Crawford broke, which seemed to further jeopardize its chances of coming back. His starring role in Lethal Weapon season three will be Scott's first time taking on a network series regular role.

Days after multiple outlets, including THR, reported that Crawford had been fired from the series, the actor posted multiple messages on his verified social media accounts indicating that he had yet to be informed of his future on Lethal Weapon.
