Fox is jumping in front of the gun on a full season order of Lethal Weapon ordering an additional five episodes for the new drama making that a total of 18 episodes. It may be four episodes short of a normal full season order but this isn’t something to shy away from. In fact it’s a nice confidence boost for the TV show reboot.
“Lethal Weapon delivers an explosive and wildly entertaining core relationship between two cops, with dynamic performances by Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, surrounded by cinematic action, endearing humor and true heart,” enthused Fox entertainment president David Madden in a statement. “We are thrilled to add these episodes to Lethal Weapon’s first season.”
