Lethal Weapon is guaranteed a Season 3 renewal based on its high ratings, with its Season 2 finale set to air on May 18.
Crawford, however, has denied the claims, replying to a fan on his Instagram page: "This article comes as a shock".
One incident included Crawford angrily responding to the working conditions, which, as he describes, didn't feel very safe or even just conducive to working well. I met with human resources, I apologized for my part of the conflict, and I completed studio appointed therapy in October.
The second incident occurred during a Crawford-directed episode when one of the actors was hit with a section of shrapnel and consequently felt unsafe on the set. It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all precautions and procedures being followed.
Furthermore, Crawford went on to apologize if he unintentionally made anybody uncomfortable at Lethal Weapon and acknowledge that Lethal Weapon isn't receiving the most positive attention due to the allegations against him.
Crawford closes off his statement by expressing his gratitude for his job and saying that he works hard for the show.
The actor has issued and apology statement, which reads, "I absolutely love, respect and care for my crew and cast, and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs". "I hope they will stick with me, and stick with the show".
I have learned that Crawford has had a history of bad behavior on the show, and that he has been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment. The actor notes that the incident happened with a guest helmer and an assistant director on set, both of whom reacted with anger as well. You could try to bring it back with a new person in the lead role, but with that you run the risk of blowback from Crawford fans and other Lethal Weapon viewers who enjoy the show as is.
