Lethal Weapon is now the only show produced outside of Fox counterpart 20th TV on the network's 2018-19 roster.

Instead, Fox has hired American Pie and Road Trip actor Seann William Scott in his first series-regular TV role to join the show. Warners on Sunday confirmed Crawford will not return to the drama with a statement: "Warner Bros".

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. Their reaction comes after Warner Bros. chose to replace Clayne Crawford and replace him with American Pie star, Seann William Scott. After clashes on set between star Clayne Crawford and Wayans, Crawford was sacked - and the show was in jeopardy.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already incredible cast", Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn shared in a statement.

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.

Lethal Weapon, the highest rated of Fox's Warner Bros TV drama series, went from being a sure thing for renewal to being in limbo because of all the problems with Crawford behind the scenes. The situation escalated to a point where Fox and Warner Bros.

May pushes ahead with plans for #Brexit customs partnership with EU
Under this proposal, Britain would collect tariffs on goods entering the country on the EU's behalf. This has increased the likelihood that each team will conclude both options need yet more work.

Crawford praised all of his collaborators and insisted he would never intentionally jeopardize other people's jobs by causing the network to consider canceling the show.

EF Television will bring you more information on Lethal Weapon season 3 as it is announced.

Based on the movie franchise, Lethal Weapon co-stars Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney and Michelle Mitchenor.

It's a bad time for Crawford to be forced out, "Lethal Weapon" is averaging over 8.6M viewers an episode.

The action drama is executive produced by Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG.

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.
