Lethal Weapon: Clayne Crawford Wishes Cast 'Good Luck' After Being Fired

"Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon".

Lethal Weapon was something of a bubble show for a renewal, averaging a 1.7 rating and a multi-platform audience of 8.6 million, but the series does well internationally.

"Lethal Weapon" is a production of Warner Bros.

News of Crawford's firing was announced on Wednesday, and followed reports that the 40-year-old actor had been disciplined for unspecified bad behaviour, including "emotional abuse" and "creating a hostile environment".

According to sources, the decision to replace Crawford was not made lightly as it could've jeopardized the future of a series that is a profit generator for the studio, and it stems from the studio's zero tolerance policy on behavior that is deemed inappropriate. Crawford apologized and provided details of the incidents in an Instagram post: In one, he "reacted with anger" when he felt the safety of cast and crewmembers was at risk during the filming of an episode, and in another, an actor was hit with a piece of shrapnel while Crawford was directing an episode.

"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already incredible cast", Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn shared in a statement. Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

Fox's Lethal Weapon has been renewed for a third season, but co-lead Clayne Crawford won't be returning as Martin Riggs.

The show has done a solid job securing Crawford's replacement.

Shortly after the news was revealed, social media exploded with tuts and hisses from viewers who are still totally Team Clayne.

By late Sunday afternoon, some fans believed they had found the answer. Word broke last week that Crawford had officially been fired. After negotiations wrapped up, he met with Damon Wayans; the casting choice was then sealed.

"To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love", it continues.

Let us know in the comments (below)!

Crawford, 40, is best known for his role in Rectify.
