Friday Night Lights
In 2006, a show about football premiered and captivated a nation. Now, nearly 14 years later, ‘Friday Night Lights’ can be seen on NBC’s new Peacock streaming service, so we’re looking back at the cast’s amazing transformations.

If you’re an ‘FNL’ fan, it doesn’t get much better than this. It’s been ten years since the show began, but the cast headed back to Panther Field on June 10 as part of the ATX TV Festival in Austin, Texas — and yes, there were a lot of full hearts.
While we knew that the cast was reuniting at season five of the ATX TV Festival, no one expected all the stars that showed up to Panther Field — which by the way, may be overgrown but the field house and locker room are definitely still in tact. Just the photos in the gallery below plus this video featuring Tami Taylor herself, will definitely give you Friday Night Lights fans all the feels.
Austin, Texas here we come! ‘The O.C.’ was just added to the ATX TV Festival set for this summer, and well, we could not be more excited about this panel.
Last year it was Dawson’s Creek — and this year it’s The O.C.. This is not a drill. Austin, Texas’ annual TV festival has officially added both The O.C. and Friday Night Lights to their panel lineup, set to take place the first week of June. While talent is still TBD, we can only imagine the cast that will be attending.
President Obama’s moving State of the Union address focused on everything from terrorism to education reform — and ‘Friday Night Lights’?? Mr. President ended his speech with what sounded like an inspirational line from the show, and it had viewers freaking out. Click through to watch his statement!
During his incredible, eighth and final State of the Union address on January 12, President Barack Obama made something clear: the American people have to stand together and look to the future, or they can’t thrive. To cement that in the closing statement of his address, he said something that sounded remarkably like the famous words delivered by Coach Taylor on the legendary show Friday Night Lights: “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.” Who knew President Obama was such a FNL fan! Click through to watch the epic moment!
No. This can’t be happening. At the Sept. 20 Emmy Awards, Kyle Chandler admitted that Coach Taylor and Tami are having ‘problems.’ Are they getting divorced?! WATCH what he had to say now!
Okay, if the world’s most perfect couple is having “problems,” then there’s probably no hope for the rest of us. Kyle Chandler hinted at the Emmys that Coach Taylor and Tami could be heading towards divorce! Friday Night Lights fans, brace yourselves.
Clear eyes, full hearts and– excuse me, what the heck is that ringing? Kyle Chandler has reprised his legendary ‘Friday Night Lights’ character Coach Taylor for a very special PSA.
Turn off your flipping cell phone when in the theater, or prepare to feel Coach Taylor’s wrath. Kyle Chandler has once again brought back his Friday Night Lights character, and just like old times, he’s going to use powerfully inspirational invective to get what he wants. On that hit series, what Kyle wanted was for his high school football players to get that W. In this hilarious public service announcement, Kyle desires something else: for theater-goers to turn off their phones!
Amy Schumer is brilliant. The comedian took aim at rape culture by spoofing ‘Friday Night Lights’ on the April 22 premiere of ‘Inside Amy Schumer.’ Click to WATCH!
Now this is how you make a statement. Amy Schumer, 33, slammed rape culture by spoofing it through the lens of the TV classic, Friday Night Lights. In the parody, Coach, played perfectly by Josh Charles, 43, enforces a “no raping” policy on his football players. The Inside Amy Schumer spoof is hilarious, but there’s also an unfortunate reality to the situation. However, Amy’s flawless take on the Tami Taylor-type will have you freaking out because of how good it is.
For the few moments we weren’t crying during the ‘Parenthood’ series finale, we were acknowledging the moving last five minutes. The best part was that ‘Friday Night Lights’ surprise, and the creator and star are both explaining how it went down.
Attention: if you missed the series finale of Parenthood, do not keep readers. Spoilers ahead!

Television’s best show kicks off its final season (for the second time) by saying goodbye to two of its biggest characters — get out the handkerchiefs!
The fifth, and final, season of Friday Night Lights started right off with goodbyes. After watching her grow up and struggle with life in Dillon, Texs, our very own Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden) is finally heading off to college — much to the dismay of her parents Eric (Kyle Chandler) and Tammy (Connie Britton), who isn’t even allowed to drive her to school. Instead we have to watch as the normally stoic Coach and his wife both choke back tears as their eldest daughter drives off alone into the sunset. Break out the Kleenex kids.
