A slightly unhinged cop is partnered with a veteran detective trying to maintain a low stress level in his life.
In April 2018 Deadline Hollywood's Nellie Andreeva reported that negotiations for the show's third season renewal were being complicated by an ongoing problem with Clayne Crawford's on-set behavior. Andreeva reported that Crawford (Martin Riggs) had been repeatedly reprimanded for creating an emotionally abusive and hostile work environment and that the issue had "escalated to a point where other actors as well as crew on Lethal Weapon would feel uncomfortable being on set with him." Andreeva wrote that because past disciplinary action had not resulted in Crawford remediating his behavior, the showrunners were taking the very unusual step of considering the recasting of his role. After its publication in Deadline Hollywood, this story was picked up and republished in many other entertainment news outlets, including TV Guide, Vulture, TV Line, and others. In May 2018, Crawford was replaced by Seann William Scott.
The series is set in Los Angeles, California and as we see police and emergency vehicles with their lights on, the lights in front are missing a solid red light. In California, according to the vehicle code, all law enforcement and emergency vehicles are required to have at least one solid red light facing forward.
