Is Damon Wayans leaving Lethal Weapon for good? Recently, creator Matt Miller discussed the future of the FOX TV show, Deadline reports.
Based on the movie franchise, the action series 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.
As reported earlier, Wayans announced he was leaving Lethal Weapon after season three. However, that may not be the plan anymore. During this year’s winter TCA press conference, series creator Matt Miller said Wayans did have a farewell speech when season three wrapped:
He gave a big sendoff speech for the crew and thanked everybody. He bought everyone extremely expensive end-of-season jackets; he was really nice and lovely, and it ended up being a wonderful moment. He is in Hawaii right now, catching his breath.”
But Miller says the crew is hopeful Wayans will return if FOX renews Lethal Weapon for season four:
We are all in a very good headspace; I think it’s going to be a conversation, a negotiation, but I’m very hopeful that he will return.”
What do you think? Do you watch Lethal Weapon? Do you want a fourth season?
