The fate of a broadcast drama series remains in limbo following news that the show has parted ways with one of its stars. Variety reports that Clayne Crawford won’t be back on Fox’s “Lethal Weapon,” which is awaiting a decision on whether it will return for a third season.
“Variety has confirmed with sources that Fox and Warner Bros. Television are actively searching for a replacement for Crawford, who plays Martin Riggs in the one-hour cop drama opposite Damon Wayans’ Roger Murtaugh,” Variety reports. “Whether or not they are able to find a suitable replacement for Crawford will help determine whether or not the series gets a third season. No final decision has yet been made on the show’s future. Fox’s upfront presentation is set to take place on Monday, May 14.”
