Clayne Crawford Breaks Silence on 'Lethal Weapon' Firing

Seann William Scott

Last week it was revealed that Fox and producers Warner Bros.

With Wayans and Scott as new leading duo, Lethal Weapon has been renewed for a third season about 24 hours before Fox is slated to unveil its fall 2018 schedule to advertisers at its upfront presentation. The renewal came along with the news Seann William Scott (best known for the American Pie films and Dude, Where's My Car?) will be the series' new co-lead along with returning star Damon Wayans. As Fox aren't recasting the character, does this mean that Clayne Crawford's bad behavior has killed Martin Riggs? Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement.

Lethal Weapon was something of a bubble show for a renewal, averaging a 1.7 rating and a multi-platform audience of 8.6 million, but the series does well internationally.

Back on May 8 one of the show's two leads, Clayne Crawford, was sacked from the show. Zero communication with Fox or Warner Bros.


"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.

"Lethal Weapon" viewers can say goodbye to Clayne Crawford and hello to Seann William Scott! The role will be his first TV series regular roles after the American Pie franchise and numerous other features. "Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention Lethal Weapon is receiving because of these incidents", he said.

The action drama is executive produced by Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG. Television in association with Lin Pictures and Good Session Productions.

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.
