Friday Night Lights to Return For Season Four ... and Five?

at . Comments

It's not quite a touchdown yet, but EW reports that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights.

But there's a catch - and a good one at that - DirecTV and NBC might only seal a deal if they can get a rare two-year pickup for Seasons Four and Five guaranteed.

Although a spokesperson for NBC Universal declined to comment, a Peacock insider acknowledges that the studio is "actively looking at ways to keep FNL going."

Another NBC source adds, "We're very optimistic a deal will be worked out."

Guaranteeing the show two years is practically unprecedented, although Army Wives was similarly just picked up for a fourth season before its third has even begun.

While we wait for the official word, let's show NBC and DirecTV what a wise decision they'd be making by keeping Friday Night Lights' ratings up. Watch the show!

Panthers Win! Panthers Win!

Friday Night Lights Quotes

It's my turn babe. I have loved you and you have loved me and we have compromised, both of us...for your job. And now it's time to talk about doing that for my job.


Answer me this, Timmy. What happened to Texas forever, huh? What happened to livin' large, what happened to that eternal bond that you used to love to throw around when I was still healthy and headed towards the NFL, huh? I NEED you here, Tim! I need you.
