Is Lethal Weapon coming back or not? Recently, showrunner Matt Miller spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the future of the FOX TV show.
The action drama, which is currently in its third season, follows the partnership between LAPD Detective Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) and Wesley Cole (Seann William Scott), a former CIA operative who’s been everywhere and seen everything. The cast also includes Kevin Rahm, Johnathan Fernandez, Michelle Mitchenor, Keesha Sharp, Dante Brown, and Chandler Kinney.
In the interview, Miller told EW the season three finale of Lethal Weapon is a launching point for season four. That is, if FOX decides to renew the series:
The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, less so than in the previous 2 seasons, but it’s definitely a launch to where we want to go in season 4. Since we’ve already mapped out in detail what season 4 looks like, it will definitely be a bummer if we don’t get to tell that story.”
And what would season four be about? Recently, Miller told The Wrap Lethal Weapon will focus on character development:
This is a show that is very much a character piece with a procedural element in it. And for two seasons we played that hand really hard with these two guys. And forgetting for a second the off-camera stuff that led to this, from a creative point of view we kind of ran that relationship into the ground. And it was really an incredible gift to be able to relaunch a new version of that relationship starting from scratch with two characters that didn’t know each other, with two different sets of problems.”
The season three finale of Lethal Weapon premieres on FOX tonight, February 26th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
