Lethal Weapon might be Fox’s highest-rated drama but one of its lead actors has reportedly put the show’s future in jeopardy.
According to Deadline, Clayne Crawford, who plays the unhinged Navy SEAL-turned-police officer Riggs on the series, has allegedly been emotionally abusive on set — leaving Lethal Weapon’s sure-fire Season 3 renewal up in the air.
The trade alleges that Crawford has a history of bad behavior and has been disciplined on several occasions. However, the punishments haven’t stuck and he’s reportedly created a hostile work environment where crew members and some of the actors are uncomfortable with continuing to work with him. Alongside Crawford, the series currently stars Damon Wayans as Murtaugh, Keesha Sharp as his wife, Trish, and Jordana Brewster as Dr. Cahill, the police department’s psychologist who treats Riggs.
If the show does get picked up for a third season, it may end up forging ahead without Crawford as Riggs. Per Deadline, Warner Bros. is considering recasting the role in order to keep the show going. Lethal Weapon has not yet been renewed for Season 3.
TV Guide has reached out to reps for the show and will update as soon as they respond.
Lethal Weapon airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
