Friday Night Lights to End After Season Five


Friday Night Lights, the much-loved, ratings-challenged drama, will end after its fifth season, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. While NBC has not officially confirmed the report, Ausiello says NBC has let the cast know they can look for other work when production ends on season five this June. Thankfully you can delay your hysterical Julie Taylor-style tantrum for a while, as there are still a whole bunch of new episodes left: season four (which has already aired on DirecTV) will begin on NBC in May, and season five will air on DirecTV this fall and probably not until 2011 on NBC.
