Despite its comedic elements and a bromance for the ages, at the end of they day Lethal Weaponis a pretty dark show. But did you ever think it would get bleak enough to kill off its own main character?

In most cases, vengeful vendettas tend to play out poorly for the avenger, and during a sit down with showrunner Matt Miller, TV Guide learned that Riggs' (Clayne Crawford) story will be no different.

Lethal Weapon Mega Buzz: Someone's About to Say "I Love You"

"I think it's a little bit of a Sisyphus thing," Miller said of Riggs' battle with his own inner demons. "He's going to climb and push the boulder up, and it's always going to kind of roll back... I don't know how long this show will last, but I think he should probably die at some point. Not soon, but at some point, that would be a way to say goodbye to the show."

It sounds like Miller already has the end of Lethal Weapon figured out, and it's going to be a pretty tragic series finale for Martin Riggs.

Lethal Weapon airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
