Maggie Lawson (“Psych,” “Santa Clarita Diet”) has joined the cast of the third season of FOX’s “Lethal Weapon,” just as new details about Seann William Scott’s new lead character have emerged.
Scott will be playing a war veteran named Wesley Cole and not a member of the Riggs family as previously rumored. Lawson will play Natalie Flynn, an emergency room surgeon and Cole’s ex-girlfriend.
The pair met in an active war zone years earlier where she served as a medic and had a brief romance that resulted in a child. Over a decade later, Cole has moved to Los Angeles to get closer to both her and their kid.
Scott joined the series after it was renewed for a third season and one of the two leads, Clayne Crawford, was let go from the series. The new season premieres September 25th.
