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.
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.
