  • The Fox procedural remains on the bubble despite being one of the network's better performing hours

In Lethal Weapon's season finale, Crawford's Riggs was shot (presumably, now, to death) in the episode's final seconds. Their reaction comes after Warner Bros. chose to replace Clayne Crawford and replace him with American Pie star, Seann William Scott.

Clayne Crawford has been replaced in the TV series Lethal Weapon. The show's return next year may affect the future of Gotham and its chances of a fifth season.

Nonetheless, the decision was made to ax Crawford but keep "Lethal Weapon" alive, as it remains a hit for Fox, averaging a 1.7 rating in live + 7 and a multi-platform audience of 8.6 million viewers.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already unbelievable cast", said Michael Thorn, Fox's president of entertainment. "'Lethal Weapon' is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen".

"We. Are. Back. #LethalWeapon has been renewed for Season 3 and we're SO EXCITED to welcome Seann William Scott to our Lethal family!" the show's Twitter account said.

"Lethal Weapon" is based on the feature film franchise of the same name.

After the co-lead was sacked from the series last week, the network announced this weekend that the show had been renewed with a replacement for Crawford's character. Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement.

Crawford did issue an apology to the cast and crew via Instagram, but it was too late. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved. The role will be his first TV series regular roles after the American Pie franchise and numerous other features.

"Lethal Weapon" airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

The actor spoke out on social media. "Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention Lethal Weapon is receiving because of these incidents". As for Warner Bros.

Crawford broke his silence on Instagram, pairing a sombre-looking photo with a relatively enthusiastic caption.
