Fox has chose to bring back Lethal Weapon, but not its star. A studio source tells TVLine that the decision to fire Crawford was not made lightly, but was nonetheless necessary due to the actor's pattern of abusive behavior on he Lethal set. Word broke last week that Crawford had officially been fired. Indeed, FOX announced today that Lethal Weapon Season 3 is happening, but Crawford will no longer be part of the show. Crawford's behavior has led to other actors feeling uncomfortable with him continuing in the role.

The good news first is that Lethal Weapon is definitely coming back for a third season. 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. One of the outbursts was rumored to have been between him and Damon Wayans, who plays co-lead Roger Murtaugh.

In Lethal Weapon's season finale, Crawford's Riggs was shot (presumably, now, to death) in the episode's final seconds.

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. Zero communication with Fox or Warner Bros.
