If there is one person we definitely feel for when it comes to the Wayans family and Lethal Weapon, it’s Damon Wayans Jr.. Over the past few months he’s been at times mistaken for his father and, beyond that, also just been fielded a number of random questions about it — even though he has nothing to do with the show at all. (Wayans Jr. may actually be one of the most underrated comedic performers out there.)
Damon Jr. also has a new comedy on CBS now in Happy Together, one where he plays one half of a married couple who suddenly finds themselves living with a rock star who moves in to their place. That show was a subject of conversation in a recent interview the actor gave on CBS This Morning, but he was of course asked about Damon Sr.’s recent (very sudden) comments that he was leaving Lethal Weapon later this year:
“I saw the video and I was just like, ‘Dad, that’s bizarre.’ So I don’t know, he might be. I don’t know, if the show goes off the air he might be leaving.”

In the end, we do think that Lethal Weapon season 3 will probably be the end, mostly because it’s really just hard to see the show survive something like losing both of its leads. Even if Damon Sr. changes his mind, the ratings still are not spectacular this season and it would probably take a solid performance throughout just to ensure that it sticks around for a season. There were talks about extended this current season, or at least there were before Damon Sr.’s comments first came out.
As for the fate of Damon Jr.’s new show, we will better understand the fate of Happy Together at some point over the next several months. It’s got a tough timeslot, so we don’t want to get our hopes up too high.
