Lethal Weapon Canceled at FOX After Three Seasons

at .

Lethal Weapon is canceled.

There will be no fourth season to the Fox drama.

Rebooting the already rebooted franchise after the Clane Crawford debacle was always a big bet.

After Crawford got canned as a result of still wholly unknown drama behind the scenes and between him and series star, Damon Wayans, many expected the show to get canceled after 13 episodes.

Seann William Scott, always a fan favorite, entered the show at the most unflattering time possible but made a great showing as a new character named Cole.

Things must have perked up for Wayans upon his arrival, too, because he signed on for an additional three episodes despite earlier saying he would be done with the show for good after 13.

That's most unfortunate for the remaining fans of the action-packed drama, however, as the Lethal Weapon Season 3 ended on a cliffhanger.

Creator and executive producer Matt Miller was hopeful for a fourth season to address that cliffhanger, but they will not come to fruition.

Lethal Weapon's airing partner, The Gifted, was also canceled earlier this month.

Fox has grand plans underway to overhaul their offerings with a lot of cancelations and pickups underway.

Thankfully, The Resident and 9-1-1 were renewed previously, and Empire, Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, Last Man Standing, and The Simpsons have all gotten renewals as well.

Canceled shows include Lethal Weapon, The Cool Kids, The Passage, Rel, and Gotham.
