Taylor Kitsch: Questionable for Final Season of Friday Night Lights

by at . Comments

He hasn't been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but Taylor Kitsch's status for season five of Friday Night Lights is questionable.

The incredible drama - which is currently airing on DIRECT and will premiere on NBC this spring - will start working on its likely final season in March.

But that coincides with Kitsch's filming schedule on the movie John Carter of Mars. As a result, he says Kitsch “will miss part” of the season, producer Jason Katims told Michael Ausiello.

“[But] we are communicating with the [John Carter] production to work out the schedule so that Taylor can be in as much of season 5 as possible," he said.

There’s been no official announcement that the show will go off the air after its fifth season, but Katims added that “everybody is operating under that assumption.”

As for the current season, which we've been watching on DIRECTV, we won't give away any Friday Night Lights spoilers, except for this: it's tremendous.
