Fox Renews 'Lethal Weapon'

Fox announced today that Lethal Weapon has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes as the buddy cop series is winding down its freshman run - one that fared quite well for a movie-adapted entry.

Based on the movie franchise of the same name, Lethal Weapon follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh as they team up to fight crime in the city of Los Angeles. Riggs is an ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective who moves to California for a fresh start with the LAPD. His somewhat-reckless style of police work clashes with his new partner Murtaugh, whose technique is more reserved. Murtaugh, though, starts to take to Riggs' style as it starts to breathe new life into his daily grind.
