As we've previously reported, Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen) will not return as a series regular next season on Friday Night Lights. Nor will Minka Kelly (Lyla Garrity), following in the footsteps of Gaius Charles (Smash) and Scott Porter (Jason), who left town.
As for Zach, how long will he be around before bidding farewell?
Michael Ausiello of EW says about five episodes, but possibly more. That's not bad considering the whole season is 13, and it should give him ample time for an awesome goodbye story line.
We're gonna miss Matt, but he would want to leave Dillon.
