"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already wonderful cast", Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said in a statement. "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". One we've been keen to hear news about is whether Lethal Weapon was going to get a season 3 or not. With Scott replacing Crawford, the show won't have to figure out whether Lethal Weapon could continue without a Riggs, and will give it a go with Scott being a maniac with a badge. "Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon, " the studio said in a statement.
The series' ratings were enough to score a renewal, however the behavior of Clayne Crawford put the show in jeopardy.
"Lethal Weapon" star Clayne Crawford is looking at some good news and some bad news right now.

Crawford was dismissed from the series after a repeated showing of what execs and producers characterized as "repeated instances of emotional abuse of cast and crew members", that dated back several months.
Following reports that he'd created a hostile work environment on the set of Fox's Lethal Weapon, after which he issued an apology for jeopardizing the future of the series, Clayne Crawford has officially been replaced for the show's third season, and fans are not happy about the decision.
"Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention 'Lethal Weapon" is receiving because of these incidents'. It seems FOX has chose to do the latter, and Seann William Scott has landed his first-ever network series role.
The action drama is executive produced by Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG. "Like" LETHAL WEAPON on Facebook at facebook.com/LethalWeaponFOX/.
