Riggs and Murtagh are sticking around for a while longer.
Fox announced Wednesday that they have renewed Lethal Weapon for a second season.
“Lethal Weapon continues to fire on all cylinders,” said Madden. “Every week, it delivers a big, fun rollercoaster ride, but also remains touchingly human and genuinely emotional, and that’s due to the chemistry that’s developed not only between Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, but the entire cast. We want to thank our producing partners, Warner Bros., as well as Matt Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz, who have done a fantastic job in crafting a series for which a second-season order is well deserved.”
The series, a reboot of the movie franchise of the same name, follows duo Riggs and Murtagh as they work for the LAPD. Martin Riggs moves to California to start over, working for the LAPD, after he lost his wife and unborn child. Riggs gets paired up with Roger Murtagh, who’s making his return to the force after suffering a nearly-fatal heart attack. Both butt heads because of their differing ways of approaching situations but they slowly start to learn how to make it all work together while on the job.
Lethal Weapon airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m on Fox.
