Lethal Weapon defined the buddy cop movies in the 80s. When the Lethal Weapon TV series was announced, fans were already expecting it to be a hit. The TV adaptation of the famous action movie series proved to be a mega hit as it received positive reviews and ratings from fans and critics. Even though Lethal Weapon Season 1 is still going on and the season finale is way ahead (scheduled in February 2017), yet fans are craving to know about the future of the TV series. Fans are begging for Lethal Weapon Season 2 and wondering what will be its release date? Here is what you need to know about the second season of ‘Lethal weapon’.
First of all, I am a big fan of the Buddy cop universe that Shane black created back in the 80s. Even though it was Mad Max trilogy that gave worldwide fame to Mel Gibson, but many will accept that it was Lethal weapon series that made him a fan favourite. Many were wondering that if Shane black will ever return with Lethal Weapon 5. That never happened and probably will never happen too. But Shane Black knew the potential of the series so he discussed it with FOX and the TV channel agreed for a TV series. Fox ordered Lethal Weapon TV series in May 2016 and announced in October 2016 that the series will consist of 18 episodes.
Lethal Weapon TV series begins with NAVY seal Martin Riggs being transferred to the Los Angeles Police Department. Martin is known for his short temperament and unhinged characteristic. He is partnered with Roger Murtaugh, a veteran detective who wants to reduce his stress levels. The two form an unlikely partnership while solving some of the most dangerous crime cases of the city.
Lethal Weapon stars Clayne Crawford as Martin riggs (a role made famous by Mel Gibson) whereas Damon Wayans plays the role of Roger Murtaugh which was played by Danny Glover in the film series. Lethal Weapon TV series has received 7.5 rating on IMDB while the series is certified 62% fresh on RottenTomatoes. These might not be big numbers but they surely give a hope to the producers and fans.
Fox has not announced its plan regarding the future of Lethal Weapon. Most fans doubt that the TV series might get cancelled but as of now there is no news about it. There are good chances that Lethal Weapon TV series will expand to second season. Lethal Weapon Season 2 will continue the adventures of Martin Riggs and Roger. The official release date of Season 2 of Lethal Weapon is yet to be confirmed by FOX network but if renewed then the series might follow its regular pattern and will premiere in October 2017. We will notify our subscribers about the latest news of Lethal Weapon Season 2.
