Done Deal!


Friday Night Lights Renewed for Two More Seasons! Yay!

Published: Friday, March 27, 2009

Here's some happy news to start off your weekend: as rumoured a few weeks ago, the critically-acclaimed but low-rated Friday Night Lights has indeed been renewed for not one but two seasons. Go Panthers!

TV Week reports that NBC and DirecTV have chosen to continue their FNL partnership, ordering another two seasons of 13 episodes each. Just as with Season 3, the episodes will first air on DirecTV before later airing for a wider audience on the peacock network.

The renewal is somewhat bittersweet, however, as Friday Night Lights will be losing two of their cast members, Minka Kelly and Adrienne Palicki. At the end of last season, both of the actresses' characters were off to college, so the first few episodes of Season 4 will focus on tying off their storylines and saying goodbye, similar to the wrap-up episodes for Jason Street and Smash Williams in Season 3.

But hey, if that still means another 26 episodes of Kyle Chandler kicking ass and looking totally hot, we're willing to make some sacrifices.

Kristen Confirms Renewal - SPOILERS

In E-online's Spoiler Chat with Kristen:


Jamie in Irvine, Calif.: Is Friday Night Lights is going to be back! Any word on what the potential season four will bring?

As a matter of fact, we were just able to get some great insights into next season from the FNL castmembers themselves! Kyle Chandler tells us that his transfer across town may open up some new doors for the people of Dillon.

"Coach has been moved into the poor part of town, and we have no pool to draw from for a football team. I think it opens up [the show] to be far more representative, having more Hispanics in the show, blacks in the show. And then also just being the underdogs going up against my old show where my wife is still principal."

Any chance Tami Taylor will follow Coach to the wrong side of the tracks? Connie Britton has her theories!

"I think it would be interesting if she did, but it may be too difficult to depict in the show. It could also be interesting if I also go over there and we're both struggling at this school that is just falling apart."

Mind you none of this is set in stone, as Connie is quick to point out, "We generally leave that stuff to the writers because their ideas are going to be 10 times better than anything I'd have an idea for!" Pshaw!

Welcome home, Kyle!!!!!

As a born again Texan, who can't imagine living anywhere else, let me be the first to welcome you and your family to the Lonestar State. Just one question I'm sure inquiring minds would like to know. What took you so long???

Oh, please let this happen!!!!!!

"It's not quite a touchdown yet, but at least they're near the end zone.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their unique shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights. But there's a catch -- and it's a good one. According to an insider close to the negotiations, DTV and NBC might only seal the deal if they can get – holy Connie Britton Taylor! -- a two-season pickup.
Though a spokesperson for NBC Universal declined to comment, a Peacock insider acknowledges that the studio is "actively looking at ways to keep FNL going." Another NBC source adds, "We're very optimistic a deal will be worked out."
The one possible complication? The show's behind-the-scenes quarterback, Jason Katims, is attached to NBC's buzzy Parenthood pilot. If it's picked up, he would either do double duty or be forced to make a choice. Similarly, the show's go-to director, Jeffrey Reiner, is helming NBC's Trauma pilot. FNL might be able to carry on without one of its MVPs, but both? Hmm…
But maybe it's too soon to be wringing our hands over changes to the lineup. Once we have a pickup under our belt, then we can worry about such things. And while we wait for the official word, let's show NBC and DirecTV what a wise decision they would be making by keeping FNL alive by sounding off below."

I'm Baaaaaack

Hey Guys,

I missed you all, but I had a great getaway in the beautiful Old South. I heard enough Coach Taylor accents going around to make me almost feel less sad about having missed last week's episode!!! Almost.
