Plot Synopsis

Based on the series of theatrical films of the same name, LETHAL WEAPON is a one-hour drama series that follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs moves to California to start over at the LAPD. He's paired up with Roger Murtaugh, who's just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs' penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh's prudent, by-the-book technique. When Captain Brooks Avery assigns them their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh into a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and a seaport shootout with drug dealers -- and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years. Meanwhile, Riggs gets a glimpse of why Murtaugh is so determined to get home safely at the end of each day -- he's got a wife, Trish; teenagers Roger, Jr. and Riana; and a newborn baby. Riggs' life-on-the-edge attitude makes him a priority case for the department's psychologist, Dr. Maureen 'Mo' Cahill. Rounding out the precinct is Scorsese, a pathologist with the LAPD who got his nickname after a stint in film school, which no one will let him forget. By the time their first investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for -- a partner and friend, Murtaugh. And even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all.

On Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, FOX debuted the winter premiere of LETHAL WEAPON. In the mid-season premiere, "Homebodies," after investigating the murder of a millennial "designer drug" dealer, Riggs and Murtaugh find themselves in a violent turf war between a new generation of drug dealers and a Koreatown gang. Meanwhile, Murtaugh finds some comfort in a temporary new partner, and Trish attempts to set up Riggs with her co-worker.
