Default Fox cancels troubled Lethal Weapon after three seasons

Even though Season 3 wrapped in February with a cliffhanger, viewers won't learn the fate of Cole and Murtaugh. Lethal Weapon began in 2016 with Damon Wayans as Roger Murtaugh and Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs. Seann William Scott joined the cast after Crawford was fired for his on-set behavior. As Deadline recaps, "Lethal Weapon has been through the wringer since the firing of Clayne Crawford last spring over issues with on-set behavior. The show landed a last-minute Season 3 renewal after finding a new co-lead in Seann William Scott who was received fairly well by fans. Then last fall, star Damon Wayans dropped the bomb that he was going to leave after the first 13 episodes of Season 3. He later signed off for three more episodes and was reportedly open to another season." Lethal Weapon's Feb. 26 Season 3 finale was watched by just over 3 million viewers.

Fox Boss on “Tough” Decision To Cancel "Lethal Weapon" after 3 Seasons
by Nellie Andreeva
May 13, 2019

With the pickup of whopping six new drama series and the arrival of "WWE SmackDown Live" on Friday, Fox did some housecleaning, canceling several series, including "Lethal Weapon".

During the Fox upfronts call on Monday morning, Fox CEO Charlie Collier was asked about the decision to cancel the series, starring Damon Wayans and Seann William Scott after three seasons.

He talked about the “series of tough choices we have to make this time a year.”

“In the quest to be No.1, you have to make tough choices, and Lethal Weapon was unfortunately on the other side (of the bubble).”

Asked whether the behind-the-scene drama surrounding series’ star Damon Wayans played a role in the cancellation call, Collier did not answer directly but reiterated that the decision was driven by “the commitment to try to keep growing and invest in the future.”
