Based on the film franchise, the police drama centers on two very different cops who are forced to work together on the streets of Los Angeles. The cast includes Damon Wayans, Clayne Crawford, Kevin Rahm, Keesha Sharp, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney, Jordana Brewster, and Johnathan Fernandez.
In the interview, Miller said he plans on bringing guest stars Hilarie Burton and Thomas Lennon back for season two:
I love Hilarie and I would love for her to come back in Season 2. She and I have spoken about it and she’s totally game. It’s literally a logistical question, because she has a kid and they live in upstate New York and her husband (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is on The Walking Dead. I have to write the story to accommodate her calendar, which I’m more tan willing to do so I’m very hopeful she’ll come back in Season 2.
I’ve spoken to Thomas about it and I would love, love, love for him to come back. I think he was amazing! So our plan is certainly to bring him back.”
Later, he revealed season two will offer a kind of fresh start:
FOX has already renewed Lethal Weapon for a second season.
I don’t want to give away too much but the idea is to make it a satisfying entry into Season 2 so we don’t feel like we’ve short shrifted the audience. A season premiere is almost like a reboot of a show so that’s what we’re going to intend to do with our first episode.”
What do you think? Did you watch season one of Lethal Weapon? What do you hope happens in season two?
