Damon Wayans Is Leaving Lethal Weapon TV Series

In an interview with Electronic Urban Report, Wayans announced that he plans on quitting Fox's action drama after production on the 13-episode third season, which kicked off September 25, wraps in December.

'Well, this is more of an announcement but I'm going to be quitting the show in December after we finish the initial 13, ' Wayans shockingly said. All the family gatherings, I haven't seen them. Damon Wayans has announced he's leaving the show, revealing the news in an interview with Electronic Urban Report. "Like Murtaugh said, 'I'm too old for this.'" Asked if he's kidding, Wayans shook his head and said "No". Crawford later countered that stories of his outbursts were greatly exaggerated, adding that his hard working relationship with Wayans was the greater cause behind his ouster. Back in August, Wayans said that he was "having fun - on and off set" since Crawford's exit. "Like Murtaugh said, I'm too old for this".

As Variety reported at the time, tension between Crawford and Wayans reached a breaking point last October, when Wayans was injured during production of an episode that Crawford was directing. However, with him gone and Sean William Scott now taking on the new leading role, you'd expect they'd be able to trudge forth and build a relationship between Murtaugh and his new partner Cole. But now, it seems neither of the original "Lethal Weapon" characters will be around. And now with Wayans' decision to leave, the show is in flux all over again.

'So you're over it, ' the reporter asked? My mother had surgery, my daughter had surgery and I had to look them both in the eye and go, "I can't be there" he lamented. To me it's just not worth it.

Warner Bros., who produces the series for Fox, has yet to comment on the situation. We'll be sure to keep you posted as further details come to light.

May 8, 2018: Crawford is officially fired from Lethal Weapon, and the recasting process beings.
