Charlie Collier, the Ceo of Fox, Told Deadline
“Series of tough choices we have to make this time a year. In the quest to be number one, you have to make tough choices, and Lethal Weapon was unfortunately on the other side”.
The statement clearly shows that the series will never return.
I know one question is haunting you now.
Why Fox Canceled Lethal Weapon Season 4?
One of the biggest reasons for the cancellation of the series is a decline in viewership and rating. The season had an average of 6.5 million per episode. But after season 2, the viewers dropped to an average of 4 million per episode. The third season was left with a rating of an average of only 3 million.
The viewership for season 3 was not that bad, but the constant decline in viewership was a matter of worry. The most Plausible reason for declining in viewership was the change in the cast of the series. As we all know, after season 2, Crayford was fire due to alleged bad behavior with the crew members.
According to Variety, there was a recording of Crawford losing his temper with his co-star Damon. Moreover, the production of the series came to halt several times due to his hostility. Security guards were always present on the set to make sure that no violence broke out during the shooting.
The Reaction of Crawford to the Allegation
Crawford clarified his stand with an Instagram post. He said that the showrunners scolded him twice because he raised his voice against the bad working environment. You can find his reply from below Instagram post by him.
