Minka Kelly Still Likely Leaving Friday Night Lights

at . Comments

Now that Shonda Rhimes' political pilot, The Body Politic, has not been picked up by the CW (The Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place and The Beautiful Life won spots instead), does that mean Minka Kelly, is still leaving the current show she stars on, Friday Night Lights?

Unfortunately yes.

According to reports, Lyla Garrity is not returning to Dylan, Texas, as was the plan all along.

Friday Night Lights thrives on its realism, and that means folks leaving town, as we saw with the exits of full-time cast members Gaius Charles and Scott Porter.

Minka told E!, "I actually will probably be moving on. I think it would make more sense story-wise that I graduate and move on to college. I think I'll be moving away."

Here's hoping some lucky show lands the lovely Minka Kelly.

Luckily for fans of One Tree Hill, another star of the ill-fated Body Politic, Brian Austin Green, is rumored to be joining that show's cast as a full-time series regular.

If he can get over his case of cold feet, that is.
