Fox is pulling the trigger on a full season of Lethal Weapon

The network has ordered an additional five episodes of the freshman buddy cop drama, bringing its total to 18 for the season.

The show was Fox’s top-rated fall premiere in two years and is averaging 8.3 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 on Wednesday nights.

Lethal Weapon joins a few other freshman shows in getting full season orders since the start of the season: ABC’s Designated Survivor and Speechless, along with NBC’s This Is Us.

Fox’s cop dramedy stars Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford and airs a new episode on Wednesday night.
