Damon Wayans recently announced that he’s leaving his Fox show, Lethal Weapon later this year, explaining that he needed “to find my smile again.”

The 58-year-old actor has been involved in all three seasons of the show, which has experienced chaotic production conditions that eventually led to the ousting of Wayans’ co-star Clayne Crawford earlier this year.

“I’m going to be quitting the show in December after we finish the initial 13,” Wayans said in a video interview. “So I really don’t know what they’re planning, but that’s what I’m planning. I’m a 58-year-old diabetic and I’m working 16-hour days.”
