Wayans says his plan is to finish shooting the initial 13 episodes of season 3 of the FOX series, then officially quit in December.

During the interview with Eurweb, Wayans came off as sad and sullen about the departure which seemed to come out of left field. It may even be challenging to finish out the season, with Damon Wayans leaving after 13 episodes.

"I really don't know what they're planning but that's what I'm planning", said Wayans.

The actor, who broke the news of his exit via a video interview with Electronic Urban Report, says the schedule for the police procedural is too busy for his current home life and 58 years of age.

"You have to look yourself in the eye and ask, who are you?"

With one of his character's iconic lines, he added: 'Murtaugh said, "too old for this"'.

Asked what he'll be doing next after Lethal Weapon, Wayans said, "I'm going to return to the stage and try and find my smile again".

Back in 2016, FOX launched the "Lethal Weapon" television series based on the movie with the same name.

Wayans announcement of his departure comes a few months after Clayne Crawford, who played Wayans partner on the show, was sacked due to on-set behavioral issues. "I've given them enough time to find a replacement". "I'm from a big family, a loving family and I haven't seen them". On Tuesday (10-02-18), yours tuly, Jill Munroe, was on the "Lethal Weapon" set to speak with actress Keesha Sharp (Trish Murtaugh) who is doing double duty in season 3 as a director as well. I'm too exhausted or I can't because it conflicts with work...

Lethal Weapon: The reboot of the buddy cop comedies originally starred Wayans and Clayne Crawford (right). My grandkids. I've been missing recitals and graduations and to me, it's not worth it.
