Fox’s “Lethal Weapon” has had a successful run of two seasons, with Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford in the lead roles. Unfortunately, reports of bad on-set behaviour from Crawford have made the renewal decision a complicated one.
According to Deadline, Crawford has apparently been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment – resulting in other cast not wanting to be on set with him.
If they were to replace him, it’s always a risky move with an established series, and given he’s on of the leads, it wouldn’t go unnoticed.
The TV series sees Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Riggs (Crawford) suffer the loss of his wife and baby, so he moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he is partnered with LAPD Detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayons), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid stress in his life.
The original film series starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the leads, and there has been talks of a fifth flick.
Hopefully we will soon hear what will be the fate of the series!
