Fox is keeping Lethal Weapon alive, at least for another season.
The television remake of the popular 1980s and 1990s film series starring Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford got that season despite getting a truncated full-season order earlier this year, according to Deadline. Yet, it seems nothing is affecting the stable viewership the series has earned, giving Fox executives the confidence to give it at least another year.
Lethal Weapon is the second early renewal for Fox, picking up Lucifer earlier this month. It’s a show that Fox Entertainment president David Madden told the trade publication in a statement that is firing “on all cylinders.”
“Every week, it delivers a big, fun roller-coaster ride, but also remains touchingly human and genuinely emotional. And that’s due to the chemistry that’s developed not only not between Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, but the entire cast.”
