Seann William Scott is set to star on Fox’s Lethal Weapon, replacing original co-lead Clayne Crawford. Scott will play a new character who will be paired with Damon Wayans’ Murtaugh.

The season 2 finale provided us with the exit of Crawford. We find out that Crawford’s Riggs had been planning to move back to Texas with Molly and her son and been shot in the chest.

Crawford leaves the production amid reports of behavior issues. Lethal Weapon has been renewed for a third season, and this came just 24 hours before Fox is set to reveal its schedule for the fall of 2018 to advertisers.

Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn said: “Seann is a fantastic addition to this already amazing cast.

Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can’t wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen. 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.”
