Steven Seagal Lawman Returning to Duty for Second Season

A&E has called Steven Seagal back to duty for a second season of Lawman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lawman scored the best ratings ever for an A&E series launch when it premiered to 3.4 million viewers last December. The reality show follows the 58-year-old action star on duty as a reserve deputy sheriff in Jefferson Parish, La. Production on the series was suspended in April after Seagal was accused of sexual harassment. Jefferson Parish's sheriff said the allegations would be a distraction, according to the trade paper. The lawsuit was dropped in July. The eight episodes airing this year were all shot before the lawsuit and it is unclear if the suspension is still in effect. Season 2 of Steven Seagal Lawman premieres on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 10/9c. Source Here

Steven Seagal's TV Show in Jeopardy Due to Alleged Sexual Abuse

Steven Seagal's reality TV show has been put on hold following allegations the actor sexually abused his female staff. Ex-model Kayden Nguyen is suing the "Under Siege" tough guy for $1 million (666,000 pounds), claiming he used her "like a sex toy" and expected her to pleasure him sexually after landing a job as his executive assistant. She also alleges that Seagal had two Russian girls "who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week" - and she was expected to replace one of them. The allegations have thrown the future of Seagal's show, "Steven Seagal Lawman", into doubt - after the sheriff who works alongside the actor in the series kicked the film crew out of his office. Sheriff Newell Normand made an announcement that, in the light of the sexual abuse claims, he could no longer warrant working alongside Seagal. The show charts Seagal's work as a deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana. On Tuesday, April 13, Seagal's lawyer Marty Singer dismissed Nguyen's claims, stating, "The lawsuit... is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for using illegal narcotics. (The lawsuit) is a complete fabrication without a scintilla of truth." Singer is confident Seagal's name will be cleared and the case dismissed. Source Here
