Fox has moved early to renew its buddy cop series “Lethal Weapon,” reports Variety.

The TV adaptation of the Mel Gibson–Danny Glover film, starring Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans, has given the network a solid 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and an average audience of 6.63 million. Factoring in linear and digital platforms brings the total average up to 11 million viewers per episode, according to Fox.

It was the network’s first new series to be given a full season order back in October.

“‘Lethal Weapon’ continues to fire on all cylinders,” said Fox Broadcasting entertainment president David Madden. “Every week, it delivers a big, fun rollercoaster ride, but also remains touchingly human and genuinely emotional, and that’s due to the chemistry that’s developed not only between Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, but the entire cast. We want to thank our producing partners, Warner Bros., as well as Matt Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz, who have done a fantastic job in crafting a series for which a second-season order is well deserved.”
