It’s not official yet but TV Guide today had an exclusive report that NBC has ordered six more Friday Night Lights scripts. I guess they want to see what direction the writers are planning on taking the show next season before they commit to a new season.
Hopefully as TV Guide guesses, this really is just a precursor to the formal announcement that Friday Night Lights will be renewed despite ratings that for a lesser show would mean it was being canceled.
As a huge fan of what is one of the top 3 or 4 shows currently on the air, I applaud NBC for sticking with a quality show. Don’t miss tomorrow night’s finale. Looks like a great hour of TV.
