Damon Wayans joins new co-host Seann William Scott in the Season 3 promo for “Lethal Weapon” after Clayne Crawford exit earlier this year.
“A new partner, still deadly.”
“A deadly Weapon”, which debuted their first promo for season three on Thursday, giving fans their first look at Seann William Scott in the next series of star Clayne Crawford exit earlier this year. Crawford, who played the role of Martin Riggs on the show, was fired in May, after it was revealed that he was twice reprimanded for his on-set behavior.
Scott joined the Fox show as Wesley Cole, the new partner of Damon Wayans’ straight-laced Roger Murtaugh, and certainly proves he is ready for action in the promo. A glimpse of a number of battle scenes are in the clip, and a little bit of Scott and Wayans’ chemistry, as they banter and balancing on the top of a moving van by Los Angeles.

Things certainly seem to be going smoothly for Wayans and his new co-star, after the 57-year-old actor called out Crawford for his actions on the set last spring. Since deleted tweets, Wayans claimed that Crawford was responsible for a bloody injury that he suffered during an episode Crawford is focused. He also alleged that Crawford hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle.
Neither Crawford, nor Fox responded to ET’s request for comment.
In a statement before Crawford was officially fired, the 40-year-old actor focused on two specific set of incidents for which he was reprimanded, including the alleged incident with Wayans — although he is not the name of the actor in the time.

“The second rebuke came during an episode I was directing,” he said. “An actor on the set felt unsafe because a piece of shrapnel from an impact that hit him. It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all safety precautions and procedures to be followed. I take responsibility for the incident, because I was the boss of the bunch.”
“I am incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work once someone is less than friendly to us, or feel less than celebrated for their efforts,” Crawford added. “… I take pride in treating everyone in your life with dignity and kindness.”
“A lethal Weapon” returns Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9 pm ET/PT on Fox.
