Is Jordana Brewster leaving Lethal Weapon? That may be a question that you’re wondering about while watching tonight.
While we are writing this article prior to tonight’s episode airing on Fox, reports indicate that the actress was only set to appear in the first two episodes as Dr. Cahill. That is all she is credited for online, and she is not set to be a series regular. She isn’t included in the cast photos and given that she had a good many of her scenes with Clayne Crawford, there is a certain element of it that makes sense.
Are we still sad about it? Sure, especially when you consider that there could have easily been a way in which to write this story where Cahill could have worked alongside Wesley Cole or some other characters. This is just one of those situations where we’re losing an interesting character at an inopportune time — though in general, that is a trend with Lethal Weapon these days as there has been quite a struggle in order to keep the metaphorical ship afloat. Just remember what is happening now with all of the headlines surrounding Damon Wayans and his own impending exit from the series.

Ultimately, we’ll just have to wait and see if there are some more appearances coming up for Brewster in the future, but we wouldn’t hold our breath on that. Given the headlines surrounding Wayans and the tumultuous nature of this show in general, and it would be a surprise, in the end, if this show actually goes beyond the 13-episode order. Things are just so chaotic at this point we do think that it is certainly possible that the series ends up cutting its losses.
