FOX has chose to renew its action drama series Lethal Weapon for a third season, but it's not exactly that cut and dry.

The news comes days after Crawford was sacked from the Fox drama following bad behavior on set.

"To my cast and crew - CONGRATULATIONS on season 3!" Kate Arthur of Buzzfeed reports that one of the reasons FOX opted to renew the series without Crawford was to "make the point that bad behavior will get you fired". Sources have told EW that the decision was a hard one and was due to Crawford exhibiting a pattern of toxic behavior on the set and that there is video and audio evidence of such behavior. The Rectify alum later released a statement in which he elaborated on the two incidents that led Warner Bros.to reprimand him.

Seann William Scott, best known for playing the randy Stifler in the 1999 comedy "American Pie", will replace Clayne Crawford as Damon Wayans' co-star on Fox's "Lethal Weapon".

Xiaomi's Hong Kong IPO expected to raise at least $10 billion
Beijing-based Xiaomi is the world's fourth biggest smartphone maker by shipment volume, according to International Data Corp. However, the company's revenue reached 114.62 billion Yuan ($18 billion) in 2017, which is up by 67.5 per cent against 2016.

Seann William Scott was ultimately selected after approaching other actors for the role.

Even though ITV has yet to broadcast the season two finale, the internet is full of spoilers, and if you wish to remain spoiler free, this is your last chance to stop reading.

Lethal Weapon was something of a bubble show for a renewal, averaging a 1.7 rating and a multi-platform audience of 8.6 million, but the series does well internationally. While not going into exact details, we're told that in each instance there were disciplinary actions taken by the studio and the behavior continued.

The good news first is that Lethal Weapon is definitely coming back for a third season. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved. Here's the tweet from the official Lethal Weapon Twitter confirming the renewal. Fox's stipulation was that, should Lethal Weapon continue, the role of Riggs would be recast, and the show has spent the weekend in limbo as multiple actors auditioned for the open role. As of just a few days ago, Crawford's Instagram posts also revealed he hadn't heard anything from the network and expressed hope he wasn't being fired.
