Adrianne Palicki Speaks on Friday Night Lights Return

at . Comments

Adrianne Palicki is headed back to Dillon, Texas.

The actress, who rose to fame as the character of Tyra Collette on Friday Night Lights, will resurface for the last two episodes of that show's final season, which premieres on DIRECTV in October. What brings Tyra back to town?

"It's Christmas, ultimately, so it's a visit," Palicki told Zap2It. "But I get to be there when we really end the show with everybody... I think we're going to wrap at the Collette house, which I'm really excited about. It's going to be very emotional."

Palicki will also be seen on Fox this fall. She plays the key role of Cat Thatcher on Lone Star, a new drama earning rave reviews from critics.

How would she compare Cat and Tyra?

I'm lucky I keep playing these very strong female characters. Their strength comes from different places, obviously, but both of them are very strong, smart individuals - one just happened to be raised in a much more conducive environment.

"They're both very worldly, and they see things that maybe other people don't see or try to pretend they don't see."

Lone Star premieres on September 20 and TV Fanatic will cover each episode in-depth.

Thoughts on the new NBC Wonder Woman pilot Without even seeing it, it will fail buaecse of the usual reasons when depicting a female superhero on network TV 1) It will be too politically correct. Superheroines need to be SEEN and unself-conscious about it. Her suit will simply not be sexy / skimpy/ tight enough. If Lynda Carter didn t have such imposing cleavage in her 1977 suit, do you think anyone would remember her? 2) NBC promotions and marketing will typically target the wrong audience a la Bionic Woman and Birds of Prey: 16-24 females who COULD CARE LESS. 3) They will underserve the audience that DOES CARE, 16-55 MEN. 4) It will not be written by someone who cares a Fanboy with real writing skills. David Kelley is one hell of a writer, but I don t know if Wonder Woman works, it s only buaecse of him. Don t know alot about Adrianne Palicki, but they missed the boat when NOT casting Valerie Perez, IMHO. Let s hope I m wrong.


I don't know how I'm going to let go of these people and this show. It's probably one of the top 10 programs I've ever seen, right up there with 'ER'. It's terrible that it never got the viewers and ratings it deserved.
I was hooked from the first 15 minutes.
Thank you, Taylors and Dillon, for a wonderful 5 years. I'm going to miss you so much. Thank goodness for DVD sets. I can visit anytime.
