Lethal Weapon Season 3 Premiere To Include Final Appearance Of Clayne Crawford’s Martin Riggs As Seann William Scott’s Wesley Cole Debuts.
TV Line reports:
For a last glance at Clayne Crawford before he’s gone from Fox’s buddy dramedy forever, watch the season premiere, where “Riggs is bleeding and dying in the cemetery” — thanks to leftover Season 2 footage, executive producer Matt Miller says. Viewers won’t see Riggs’ funeral nor any goodbyes between the rogue cop and his partner Murtaugh; rather, the series will skip ahead six months, to when Trish and the kids are urging Roger to move past his grief. “Unfortunately,” Miller notes, “he’s in a bit of a rut.” Murtaugh’s investigation of Riggs’ shooting leads him to cross paths with former CIA operative Wesley Cole, played by new series regular Seann William Scott, a Los Angeles cop who — while not the reckless agitator his predecessor was — has his own baggage: a 12-year-old child and a “strained” relationship with the kid’s mom, Natalie (Psych‘s Maggie Lawson), who’s an ER doc in Los Angeles.
BONUS SPOILER: In the premiere, Murtaugh destroys “any chance of a political future that Avery has,” Miller says. Welcome back to the precinct, captain!
RETURN DATE: Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c (Fox)
