Seann William Scott to star in 'Lethal Weapon' Season 3


FOX has made a decision to renew its action drama series Lethal Weapon for a third season, but it's not exactly that cut and dry. Crawford was accused of behaving badly on the set and he admitted via Instagram to two issues.

According to an earlier report from Deadline, cast and crew had complained about Crawford's "emotional abuse" and him creating a "hostile environment" on set.

"To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love", it continues.

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.

Back on May 8 one of the show's two leads, Clayne Crawford, was sacked from the show.

Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company, announced "Lethal Weapon" s renewal Sunday, along with the reveal that Seann William Scott ("American Pie") will be joining the cast next season as a new character who folds into a partnership with Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans).




Season two averaged 8.6 million viewers. As for Warner Bros.

"Lethal Weapon" star Clayne Crawford is looking at some good news and some bad news right now. Despite the studio's repeated reprimands, the actor did nothing to change his behavior and Warners instead opted to fire him rather than take a large financial blow and have Fox cancel the series.

Sources tell THR that Warners opted to fire Crawford after he was disciplined each time for his poor behavior. He is to play a new character opposite series regular Damon Wayans in the series based on the film franchise of the same name.

Lethal Weapon will return for Season 3 on Fox next season.

Besides "American Pie", Scott's credits include "Road Trip", "Role Models", "The Dukes of Hazzard", "The Rundown" and "Dude, Where's My Car?". Here's the tweet from the official Lethal Weapon Twitter confirming the renewal.

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.
