I know I am not the only DC'er in love with the critically acclaimed Friday Night Lights so I will spread the hopeful news that has me smiling from ear to ear: FNL may be getting a two season pick up! According to Michael Ausiello (EW.com), who has the exclusive news, it's looking good that FNL will get a fourth season as NBC and DirecTV try to work out a deal. Season three, airing now on NBC, had its first run on DirecTV.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their unique shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights. But there's a catch -- and it's a good one. According to an insider close to the negotiations, DTV and NBC might only seal the deal if they can get – holy Connie Britton Taylor! -- a two-season pickup.
Friday Night Lights returns to NBC on Friday, January 16th! Even if you were one of the lucky ones to catch Season Three on DirecTV or by other means, Jason Katims (Executive Producer, FNL/Roswell) wants fans to know that you should still tune in on the 16th.
"Even though there might be people who saw the show on DirecTV," executive producer Jason Katims says, "I'm not sure they won't come back. There's going to be additional material now that we're going to be able to put up on NBC.com.We'll be able to put up deleted scenes and additional material, new things for them.
"We have a tremendous amount of scenes that, over the course of the season, that we've had to take out, really good material. That's always been the case with the show.
"That's something that has not been made available before. That will be made available as we start airing on NBC." READ MORE
