TVLine and other media outlets are reporting that FOX has decided to give the greenlight and renew reboot series Lethal Weapon for a second season.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
When Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs suffers the loss of his wife and baby, he moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh, who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.
Fox’s Entertainment President, David Madden released a statement saying:
Lethal Weapon continues to fire on all cylinders. 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.
While the series may feel predictable in how procedural it is to previous cop shows that came before it, whilst keeping the elements of the friendships/relationships from the film series, I’ll admit that I actually enjoy the show and that’s mainly due to the chemistry of the cast ( Damon Wayans Sr., Clayne Crawford, Jordana Brewster, Kevin Rahm, Keesha Sharp and Johnathan Fernandez). I’d say for anyone that was a fan of the film series that is skeptical of the television series, give it a shot.
