                            Lethal Weapon season 3: When will the show be back on air?

It looks like you're going to have to wait for one more week to see the new episode of 'Lethal Weapon' season 3. While Fox aired a repeat of episode 6, 'Panama', last week, the network won't be airing any repeats next week.

The network's slot for 'Lethal Weapon' falls in between the time for State of Union Address on Tuesday, February 5. Fox will offer special network coverage of President Donald Trump’s address which will be anchored by the network's own Shepard Smith. 

The promo for the next new episode 'Coyote Ugly', 13th in the season's roster, said that it will air on Feb 5

But due to the state of the union address, the episode will air on Feb 12, the first new episode since January 15.

It is still unclear as to why the weeks in between did not have a new episode. However, there's no need to worry yet - the show definitely has not gone off the air. 

The upcoming episode, 'Coyote Ugly' appears to be a pretty pivotal episode in the season. This time, LAPD's finest return with a case that takes them to the Mexican border. The episode synopsis reveals that Cole and Murtaugh investigate a case involving a father and daughter crossing the border and ending up uncovering a major issue with the California Border Patrol.

"Whatever they were bringing across, it was worth killing for," an official tells the duo in the promo.

It shows Cole and Murtaugh trying to fight as hard as they can with nowhere to run. There's no sign of the Murtaugh we saw in the last episode where he wanted to retire. As for Trish, she's dealing with demons from the past too. As Trish prepares for her campaign for District Attorney, she realizes that events from her past may come under scrutiny as she runs for public office. In the last two seasons, we haven't really seen Trish do something that she would need to hide - but clearly, there's something that she doesn't  want coming into the spotlight. This episode will also feature Maggie Lawson and Paola Lazaro as Natalie Flynn and Gutierrez respectively. 

It remains unclear as to how the love story between Erica and Cole would go ahead in this episode since the whole story seems to be focused on the case, Cole and Roger and their partnership. 


This season is already on its way to the end and there have been no official announcements of a renewal. Fox recently renewed two shows - 'So You Think You Can Dance' and the singing competition, 'The Masked Singer'. Rumor is that 'Lethal Weapon' will not come back for a season 4. If it doesn't, the next three episodes will be the last time that you see Murtaugh, Cole and the rest of the gang. 

Catch Cole and Murtaugh battle it out on 'Lethal Weapon's upcoming episode 13 'Coyote Ugly' on Tuesday, February 12 at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT on Fox.
