More information about the movie franchise and series:
The Lethal Weapon movie franchise started in 1987 where Mel Gibson and Danny Glover made their debut appearance as the classic buddy-cop duo. Gibson starred as a one-man killing machine and Glover played a by-the-book homicide detective. The first movie’s blockbuster success inspired three more action-packed sequels, which created a cult fan following.
Fast forward to 2016 where an adrenaline-fuelled TV adaption of Lethal Weapon sees a new generation of actors: Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans, take on the lead roles.
Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh, a cop who’s only just recovered from a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s by-the-book technique, so one thing is clear from the moment they meet- this partnership is doomed. But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a chaotic car chase and into a shootout with drug dealers, which, despite his protests, leaves the older cop feeling more alive than he has in years.
