It seems Friday Night Lights is the series that just won’t die. EW and Eonline are both reporting the series will most likely be renewed for two more 13-episode seasons. FNL has never done well in the rating but has always received raves from critics and the few viewers they’ve been able to retain.
The show’s star, Kyle Chandler, told E! that they hope to know soon if they’ve been renewed, “Anytime. That’s what we’ve been hearing for a month now, anytime…It’s 50 percent solid that we’re coming back. I think [the show] will be back. My wife and I would like to hear for firm.”
The deal NBC struck with DirecTV might be the show’s saving grace. Last year, NBC gave first-run rights to the current season to DirecTV, generating additional revenue and a larger audience. It was also a good deal for DirecTV who were hoping to cash in on the die-hard fans that would not want to wait for NBC to air new episodes months later.
The bad news is, some of the cast will not be returning for season four. Gaius Charles and Scott Porter graduated, meaning they, along with several other familiar faces at Dillon High, will be moving onto bigger and better things.
If you want to catch up on season three before the start of season four next fall, you can watch full episodes on FanCast.
