Friday Night Lights Season Five Premiere Date: Announced!

by at . Comments

Just a week after Friday Night Lights concluded its fourth season on NBC, DirecTV has announced the premiere date for its fifth and final season. It will kick off on October 27.

A couple years ago, a deal between these networks saved the critically-beloved show from cancellation. For the third season in a row, it will air 13 episodes on DirecTV, followed by a second run-through on NBC.

Supportive Couple

Anchored by Emmy nominees Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, the show has mostly restocked its regular cast.

But long-time Friday Night Lights favorites such as Scott Porter, Taylor Kitsch, Zach Gilford and Adrianne Palicki will all return for the show's final season.

Holy smokes what's the confusion? Ya'll aren't too smart huh? FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is on DirecTV FIRST. Has been for the last 2 seasons. THEN when it's done on DirecTV, it'll air on NBC. Not sure how that can be confusing, unless the wires in your brain don't quite connect like they should. SO, FNL (That's Friday Night Lights since you're easily confused) will probably premiere on NBC (Cuz it runs on DirecTV first since you're easily confused) in 2011.
