Could Lethal Weapon 5 be on the cards for studio Fox?

During a panel for their Lethal Weapon TV series, starring Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, at a Television Critics Association event yesterday, executive producer Dan Lin said the film department at Fox allowed them to extend the franchise to television but that “there may be a Lethal Weapon 5 in the future”.

There’s still potential for a Lethal Weapon 5,” he said. “The film department was gracious to let us extend the series on television but there may be a Lethal Weapon 5 in the future but for now the focus is 100% on the TV show.”

Lin confirmed that the new show would be toned down for TV compared to the original 1987 film due to it being aired during “family hour“.

The idea with this show is there will be cases of the week and crimes that we will solve on a weekly basis,” creator Matt Miller said. “That said, there’s a season long mythology and arc we’ll be telling. It starts with the pilot. By the end of however many episodes, there’ll be, I don’t know resolution, but we’ll follow a thread through the series.”

There are also plans to introduce Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, played originally by Joe Pesci and Rene Russo, but this will be down the line if the series is successful.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
