'Lethal Weapon' Renewed for Season 3; Seann William Scott Replacing Clayne Crawford

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already wonderful cast. Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen".

A premiere date for Season 3 has not been set yet.

For the past few weeks, the rumors around FOX where that the network would either cancel the hit series "Lethal Weapon", or replace the lead-actor Clayne Crawford. Crawford wrote on Instagram hours after Fox and Warners confirmed he would not be returning for the newly announced third season. To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love. Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

LETHAL WEAPON averages a 1.7/7 L7 and a Multi-Platform Audience of 8.6 million viewers. "Matt Miller, his incredible team and everyone at Warner Bros. have been tremendous partners, and we're thrilled to bring this show back for another season".

The news comes days after Crawford was sacked from the Fox drama following bad behavior on set.

Crawford admitted to being disciplined over two on-set incidents involving outbursts, giving his side of the story and apologizing for "my part of the conflict". He is to play a new character opposite series regular Damon Wayans in the series based on the film franchise of the same name. Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement. "Like" LETHAL WEAPON on Facebook at facebook.com/LethalWeaponFOX/. The first two seasons are available to stream on Hulu. "I an incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on our set, or feel less than celebrated for their efforts". I hope I'm not fired! Warner Bros. alerted Fox to the issue and told the network they coudn't keep the actor on if the show if renewed - even just from a financial standpoint it would put a studio at risk. "Dang", he posted on Instagram alongside a photo of himself with an amusing shrug.
