Lethal Weapon Upgrades Michelle Mitchenor
Good news all you Lethal Weapon fans, actress Michelle Mitchenor, who plays Detective Sonya Bailey, has reportedly been bumped up to series regular. Mitchenor has appeared in twelve of this season’s thirteen episodes so far, and is expected to return for the show’s all but official second season.
Lethal Weapon is Fox’s third highest rated show, averaging 6.7 million viewers and a 1.7 demo. The show has not officially been renewed, but with numbers like those, it is all but certain to get a second season notice from the network.
For those of you not familiar with Mitchenor, she is an accomplished dancer who shared the stage with Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Beyoncé before being hand-picked by Spike Lee to co-star in his film Chi-Raq.
