'Friday Night Lights' Stretched for Two More Seasons


'Friday Night Lights' Stretched for Two More Seasons


NBC and Direct TV have given a green light for a couple more seasons of 'Friday Night Lights' that will bring it to a total of 77 episodes.

"Friday Night Lights" get to live for two more seasons. It has just been confirmed that NBC has ordered two 13-episodes despite the mediocre ratings the series is garnering. The series about a Texan high school football team, as usual, will premiere on cable Direct TV first before going to NBC for a second run.

The fourth season, therefore, will be another cost-sharing pact between NBC and Direct TV. Additionally, according to THR, the fourth and fifth season will be shot back-to-back in order to save cost. The production will be held in Texas as usual, and the fourth season is expected to air later this fall with the fifth following the next season.

The series was on the verge of being canceled when the third season plunges from the usual 3 million plus to an average of 2 million. Some actors have also been reported not coming back for another season due to the fact that they have graduated in the show. These actors are Taylor Kitsch, Minka Kelly, Zach Gilford and Adrianne Palicki.
