Will 'Lethal Weapon' Be Canceled After Damon Wayans Exit?

Damon Wayans is officially done with Fox's Lethal Weapon TV series.

Even as the show was renewed for the season, now airing on Fox, Wayans was still vocal about his relationship with Warner Bros. management, who had taken disciplinary action against him for his own on-set behavior.

Damon Wayans, who plays Roger Murtaugh on the show, will be departing the project in December. "So I really don't know what they're planning, but that's what I'm planning. I'm a 58-year-old diabetic and I'm working 16-hour days", the comedian said in a video interview. This may come as a blow to fans of the series and for the network, but for Wayans, the move doesn't come as a major surprise. Here's what Wayans had to say about it in a recent interview.

When pressed on the subject, Damon Wayans, referenced a classic Danny Glover line from the movies saying, "I'm done".

Dana Walden, the CEO of the Fox Television Group, defended the decision to axe Clayne at the channel's Upfront presentation earlier this year.

Wayans went on to note the current health issues his family is experiencing and expressed frustration that he couldn't physically be there for them.

He added that he is "done" working on the show.

"It's hard for me to play this loving, supportive father/husband/friend on TV but be the guy in life that who's telling everybody, 'I can't - I have to work'". He has since been replaced with Seann William Scott's Wes Cole, but it's now unknown who will be Wayans' replacement should the show return. I'm too exhausted or I can't because it conflicts with work...

Lethal Weapon airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.

Wayans was disgruntled about Lethal Weapon going back to last season, when he clashed with co-star Clayne Crawford - the Riggs to his Murtaugh - in a very public feud. I've been missing recitals and graduations.
