If the series returns for a third season, it will be without co-lead Clayne Crawford. http://tvline.com/2018/05/08/clayne-crawford-leaving-lethal-weapon-season-3-controversy-recast/

Well, it looks like I officially won't be watching lethal weapon next year. Either Riggs will be recast and I won't want to watch it, or they'll cancel it. Too bad, it's a great show! I just hope tonight's season (series?) finale doesn't end on that bad a cliffhanger :/

I do not enjoy all comedy and I am very picky about the comedy shows I choose to watch. Although Lethal weapon is not a comedy show, I enjoy the humor that show offers and the way it is presented. However, if Clayne Crawford leaves the show, it would be hard to watch the show and accept a different chemistry between the two co-lead actors. Clayne Crawford might be a jerk or so he sounds so, but I really enjoy his acting and perhaps that is what makes him great for the role (although he was smooth in his role in Rectify as well).

I gotta say I am with Elise Favia on this one. Weather it's canceled or get Riggs recast, I don't think I will be watching it either way.

I love this show.
But I get everyone's point of view. Clayne played Riggs better than Mel Gibson. I liked his role.

But a man's Mental health must come ahead of his career.

I think the show would still do well without Riggs. I have read that rather than use a different actor to play Riggs, they will replace Riggs with someone else.

I partly suspect if they replace Riggs, what will happen is it will be Roger Murtaugh and his son as partners

It was announced 15 mins ago Clayne Clawford has 100% been fired.

Welp if Clayne is gone, consider me gone too. I only watch it for him and Damon because I like their chemistry.

"I have read that rather than use a different actor to play Riggs, they will replace Riggs with someone else." replacing Riggs with someone else IS using a different actor... LOL! Bad they've sacked him really, they coulda maybe wrote him out by killing him off and had his half brother take over from him for revenge or something, another Rigg trying to get over the murder of a family member.. hae the suicidal mental illness thing run in the family that would have work. IF the show is just Murtaugh AND gonna be his son i'd rather watch scooby doo cos those two has to be the worst two in the entire series.

No Sylar, you have misunderstood me.
1. "Use a different Actor to play Riggs " Is a different Actor
2. " Replace Riggs with someone else" - Different Character.

If I meant it how you thought, I would have said they will replace Clayne with someone else.

I agree that the current actor who plays Roger's son would be a bad fit, as especially the fact the kid is 17 or of a similar age.

But they could set it in a few years, where Junior has already joined the police force and now a team. But I realise this would not happen.

There is also talk of replacing Riggs' with a female actor. I dont think this would work either.

If..... They were to bring in the Father and son team, and make it slightly in the future.
I wonder if they would replace Dante Brown with Daman Wayans Jr

I Think the show will be good even with them replacing the actor. as long as the chemistry is good.
i think they should give it a shot just to see what happens. it's the only way to know.

Well, if they are taking Riggs off the show then, at least to me, this is not "Leathal Weapon" anymore and I see no reason in continuing to watch this show. This show is about Murthaugh and Riggs.
But it kind of felt like they were thinking about ending it during that second to last episode. What with the way the story was going . . .

Being in the Uk, we arent close to the end of the season. But from what I have read, towards the end Daman Wayans and Clayne Crawford had stopped even talking. Ironically, it sounds like Crawford, became Riggs. I dont know Crawford beyond this show, but I wonder if he is a method actor, who adopted Riggs' personality?

Trinigalfly. There are three sides to every story, his side, their side and the truth.
There will be more too it, they are just not making it public.

I am one of those who will discontinue to watch this series. The pair, Murtaugh and Riggs make a great combination. Everyone has different personalities and I understand that. I will miss this series.

I'm so twisted up in knots about this. I really love this show and own the first season. It was Must See TV for me, but the chemistry wasn't there this season and now I know why. Clayne made Riggs his own and he had great chemistry with Damon. It's a shame all this off camera drama caused this riff. Obviously, time can't heal these wounds. I would like to see if they can find a replacement with similar chemistry, but I will miss definitely Clayne.

Consider me gone. I would not watch this show with another actor or a different cast, yet I would also not watch it if they decided to keep the budding Charlie Sheen on stage. Either way time to move on.

Last night's season finale felt pretty final to me. Not the ending I was hoping for but not a cliffhanger either. At this point, I would not be surprised if they took the show off the air.

Well they just shot themselves in the foot by firing one of the main cast member from what i heard he freaked out because he was concerned about the cast and crew getting hurt because of flying debris on en episode he was directing , hell the guy apologized and went to counselling what more do you want him to do so instead of swallowing their prides they decide not to put a ton of people out of work cause lets face it the shows dead in the water very few people will continue to watch

I think there is more too it than meets the eye.
Towards the end, Clayne and Damon were no longer talking.

You dont stop talking because someone freaked out.

When i first heard they were making this show I just finished watching Rush Hour series and i though this will be just as bad but very quickly it became one of my favourite shows and even if they'll keep it on I really doubt that it'll be just as good

Funny how Actors who play Riggs, all end up going on a mental Breakdown, or something similar.
Mel Gibson..... We all saw what happened to his career for a long time.
Clayton..... Time will tell

@Snootz I read rumors online from different websites that Clayne wanted more artistic say, but they don't do table reads and don't have artist representation per Damon's contract. It was also reported that Clayne directed an episode where he moved an explosion too close and Damon was nicked by some debris, he had to pay a settlement, and Damon didn't trust him anymore. I also heard some co-stars refused to work with Clayne because of an attitude problem. Damon has been tweeting celebrations that Clayne's gone, but two co-stars have come out since he was let go to say Clayne was a great guy, so take what you want from that. Personally, it sounds like a lot of column A and column B stuff. They may have both acted poorly, but the damage is done. The chemistry is gone. Clayne is gone.
