Friday Night Lights Reboot Returning To Netflix

Friday Night Lights Reboot Returning

Connie Britton, who plays on Friday Night Lights, believes the series will never be rebooted. Friday Night Lights ran on NBC for five seasons from 2006 to 2011 and was based on the 2004 sports drama film of the same name. Britton portrayed Tami Taylor, the wife of Eric “Coach” Taylor (Kyle Chandler), the head football coach of Dillon High School. Tami begins her career as the school’s guidance counselor, assisting many of the students as they grow up. Tami grew more into her “Mrs. Coach” persona as the show progressed, eventually becoming a maternal figure for many of the show’s teenage main characters and leading some of the show’s deeper plotlines, which explored issues such as family values, racism, drugs, abortion, and a lack of economic opportunities.

Despite the fact that the program never had a large audience, it was a critical and award-winning hit. Friday Night Lights won an Emmy in 2007 for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and was nominated for three years in a row until 2010 when Chandler and Britton were nominated for their individual performances. Following the cancellation of Friday Night Lights due to low ratings, fans were ecstatic to learn that the show’s creator and executive producer, Peter Berg, was working on a sequel film with both major actors reprising their roles. Unfortunately, the project was canceled, leaving FNL fans with nothing to look forward to in the future.

While it would be wonderful to see where Coach and Tami are today, over a decade after the series conclusion of Friday Night Lights, Britton said that she and the rest of the cast and crew don’t envision her and the rest of the cast and crew returning to those storylines and characters, now or ever. However, when she considers what may have happened to her character, the 54-year-old actress feels everything worked out between her and Eric, reaffirming their unbreakable relationship.

FNL fans tend to have a hard time getting things to work out, but there may be something special in store for them this year. While the show’s 10th anniversary (February 9) has already gone, Friday Night Lights’ first-ever episode will be 15 years old on October 3, 2021. Fans who don’t want to miss Britton and Chandler reconnecting on-screen alongside Michael B. Jordan, Taylor Kitsch, Minka Kelly, Jesse Plemons, and Scott Porter for one more time should certainly save the date.
