Given Clayne Crawford’s departure and modest late-season ratings, there was legitimate concern about whether “Lethal Weapon” would receive a renewal order from FOX.

It did.

FOX confirmed plans to move forward with a third season of its action series.

In sharing the news, FOX also revealed that Seann William Scott will be replacing Clayne Crawford as Damon Wayans’ co-lead.

Scott will play a new character who begins partnering with Murtagh (Wayans).

“Seann is a fantastic addition to this already amazing cast,” said FOX’s Michael Thorn. “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.”
