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

Short answer Blame the NFL

Seann William Scott will take on his first regular role on TV as he's replaced Clayne Crawford on Fox's Lethal Weapon. 'Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen. With Scott - who will be playing a new character (possibly Riggs' brother) - in place, Fox has renewed Lethal Weapon for a third season.

"Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon". Crawford wrote on Instagram hours after Fox and Warners confirmed he would not be returning for the newly announced third season.

According to reports, Wayans wasn't on speaking terms with Crawford, who eventually apologized for his "toxic behavior" on-set saying that he was "passionate" about doing good work.

Even though ITV has yet to broadcast the season two finale, the internet is full of spoilers, and if you wish to remain spoiler free, this is your last chance to stop reading. Matthew Miller is the creator and showrunner, with Warner Bros.

Fox has made a decision to bring back Lethal Weapon, but not its star. The series, based on the hit feature films starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, stars Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney, and Michelle Mitchenor. Another said, "That no official words have been spoken, just rumors spread by the tabloids".

"I absolutely love, respect and care for my crew and cast, and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs", Crawford wrote.

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. Fox's stipulation was that, should Lethal Weapon continue, the role of Riggs would be recast, and the show has spent the weekend in limbo as multiple actors auditioned for the open role. It seems FOX has chose to do the latter, and Seann William Scott has landed his first-ever network series role.
