Just as the show seemed to be regaining its footing, Wayans dropped a bombshell on Wednesday when he reportedly announced he would be leaving the series in December.
Wayans and Crawford allegedly had a awful working relationship and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in August, the Major Payne star said the set was a lot better in season three without him.
Sounding somewhat forlorn, he continued: 'So I really don't know what they're planning, but that's what I'm planning.
Wayans cited his age, being diabetic and "16-hour days", as primary reasons for his decision to leave the Warner Bros.
Wayans casual delivery of the announcement made the interviewer actually wonder the validity of the statement, asking, "So you're over it?" Wayans replied - referencing his character from the series, "I'm done". All the family gatherings - I'm too exhausted [or] can't becuase it conflicts with work.
Lethal Weapon: The reboot of the buddy cop comedies originally starred Wayans and Clayne Crawford (right). As for what he's going to do next, Wayans added, "I'm going to return to the stage and try to find my smile again".
Back in 2016, FOX launched the "Lethal Weapon" television series based on the movie with the same name. This bit of news we're about to report seemingly came from out of nowhere.
Seann William Scott was hired to play Wesley Cole, Murtaugh's new partner, and the series was renewed for Season 3. Most notably, his work schedule kept him from attending surgeries for both his wife and daughter. My grandkids. I've been missing recitals and graduations and to me, it's not worth it.
The first episode of the third season of Lethal Weapon aired just last week on Fox and the fate of the show past the 13 episodes that have been filmed is up in the air. "There's a better way to live life".
