Matt Miller: "In a way, we’re kind of filling in the gap between the first two films. By Lethal Weapon 2, Riggs was actively out there dating, and he had sort of moved on from being a guy who is suicidal to a guy that was just kind of wacky. But for us in TV, you're looking to live in the space for a while longer. I feel like there was a lot more story to still tell of this broken guy who had just lost his wife and is trying to pick up the pieces of his life without having to have him make a big emotional leap. Because those movies came out every couple years, you need to reset it a little bit. So we do want to live in that space between the two movies."
