Friday Night Lights: It’s On
Coach Taylor says Friday Night Lights is getting another season.
Kyle Chandler, star of NBC’s Friday Night Lights, confirmed that the perennially on-the-bubble drama will return for a third season.
In an interview taped Wednesday with B&C contributor David Bianculli for National Public Radio’s Fresh Air, Chandler said a deal was struck that will spread costs and allow the series to continue.
According to a post on Bianculli’s blog, TV Worth Watching, Chandler, who plays high-school football coach Eric Taylor, said all that was left to sew up the deal was to “dot the i’s and cross the t’s.” He added that he was scheduled to report for shooting in Austin, Texas, where the show is set, in June.
