Fans of Lethal Weapon TV show on Fox will be watching a completely different show if it gets picked up for Season 4, as the remaining star from the original series announced his departure.
While speaking with EUR, Damon Wayans revealed he is exiting the popular series so he can focus on his family life. "It’s hard for me to play this loving, supportive father/husband/ friend on TV, but be the guy in life that is telling everyone, I can’t I have to work," Wayans said.
Wayans will be exiting after filming the first 13 episodes of the third season of Lethal Weapon, which is already having to deal with the fallout of Clayne Crawford. Actor Seann William Scott replaced Crawford as Murtaugh's new partner for Season 3, but it looks like Scott's character will be the tenured detective when Wayans' replacement comes on board.
"You have to look yourself in the eye and ask, who are you? It can’t be all about work. I’m from a big family, a loving family. All the family gatherings, I haven’t seen them," Wayans said. "I’m too tired or I can’t because it conflicts with work… I have seven grandkids. I’ve been missing recitals and graduations. To me it’s just not worth it. There is a better way to live life."
