One of the most delightful surprises of the 2016-17 season has been the development of the TV adaptation of Lethal Weapon. Clayne Crawford’s Riggs and Damon Wayans’ Murtaugh have captured the spirit of their big screen counterparts and the show’s writing has given them a solid platform to work from.
That’s paid off in solid ratings and a second season for the rookie cop show – as FOX announced its renewal today.
Plus, there’s a new episode tonight (blurb follows…).
A bereaved, suicidal Texas cop is transferred to Los Angeles and partnered with a fifty-year old veteran homicide cop. Chaos ensues. Welcome to the television reboot of Lethal Weapon (FOX, Wednesdays, 8/7C).
SundanceTV’s critically acclaimed series Rectify returns Thursday, July 9th and the network has created a nifty Serial-inspired podcast to help its audience catch up.
Rectify: The Case Against will help newcomers get up to date so they can start in on the season three premiere, as well as give fans who haven’t re-screened the first two seasons since last summer a quick refresher.
The network describes Rectify: The Case Against as ’16 hours in 16 minutes.’ For more, follow the jump.
