by at . Comments

The stars of NBC's Friday Night Lights were out in full force Saturday as the cast celebrated the premier of the show's sophomore season in a lively gathering outside the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum.

A critically acclaimed series based on the book and movie of the same name, Friday Night Lights has been filmed in and around Austin since it began.

The talented cast members hope the success of the show continues in Season Two to extend the series, as well as to bring more projects to Texas.

"With all the new incentives from the Texas Film Commission that are coming up now, I hope that a lot more projects come in and we can steal them back from Louisiana and New Mexico. This is the place to film. A lot of projects have been filmed here. I think it's gonna be great," said a source close to the series.
