I missed this great news yesterday, but Friday Night Lights will be on for 2 more seasons. They’re going to shoot the seasons together, which means even if next year’s ratings go down, they’ll have another season to show anyway. 13 episodes per season is a little light, but I like Friday Night Lights a lot and you should too.
The new pact covers the show’s fourth and fifth seasons, which will consist of 13 segs apiece. It continues the innovative partnership between the Peacock and the satcaster that saved “FNL” from cancellation this season, the third for the Peabody-winning series.
