Friday Night Lights: NBC Sets Premiere of Final Season

Friday Night LightsThe peacock network has finally announced a start date for the last season of Friday Night Lights. The series will finish its run on DirecTV next week, on February 8th, and the 13 episodes will then run on NBC on Fridays at 10pm beginning April 15th. The series finale is scheduled to air on July 8th.

As mentioned last week, if you don’t have DirecTV and don’t want to wait until July to see the finale, you always purchase the season five DVD set. In an interesting move, the final season of Friday Night Lights is being released on DVD some 10 days before the NBC premiere. It’s available on Amazon for $26.99.

What do you think? Will you wait for the episodes to run on NBC, buy them on DVD, or watch via some other method?

    I would love to see them bring Friday Night Lights back. Best show on. Something to look forward to watching for a change. Now, nothing but garbage and reality oh yea, I said garbage already..Bring it back please or hopefully another network will pick it up very soon.

    If you want to make money and get people to watch your network keep the good shows on TV. What happned to the family shows – this is a prime example of what big business is doing to the youth of America. I remember growing up and we all were excited to watch Disney every Sunday. Now people are gathering around to watch the biggest loser – hello they are getting paid to lose weight!. This is sad and I will miss this show . Hello lots of the target audience have their own football games on Friday Nights – maybe you should have changed the date. Either way the lovers found the show – Need some more drama on NBC!!

    Gosh, why would I buy Season 5 and watch it from start to finish at my own leisure when I can watch it on NBC (the network that pulled this incredibly series in the first place) with full commercial interruption? Now there’s a tough choice. Thanks to Amazon I had the 5th season in hand by April 5. Watched the Finale last night. Amazing show…good for DirectTV…goodbye to NBC.

    It’s a shame for a movie at this caliber production and cinematic qualities to end. Not once do you ever feel the show is fake with cliches typical of current prime-time dramas. Just the overall story combined with the dramatic musical score made each and every show till the end excellent. I never want this show to end because you get so lost in the show that you feel that you are on the field with them. Thank you to all of the writers, actors, production, directors, and all the cast that has made us feel we were a part of Dillon, TX. Friday Night Lights will live in us forever!

    Watched the final show last night on Direct TV. Well done. What a great ending to a great show. I loved the whole season. I can’t believe it’s over. It is worth the money to buy the season 5 DVD’s. This show will missed.

    I can not believe this Show is not going to return, there are so many different paths they could take this show which would be better than cancelling it.

    Everyone is saying it and NO ONE (in the Tv world) is listening. With the shows out there and a show like this that can involve people from 13-65 with anywhere from loyality, morals, everyday life experiences makes the football theme an after thought. The fact that you can relate to people in the series, not to mention lifes roadbumps is unlike most other shows out there. Its quite sad, but I really am gonna miss this show like some of the other great ones I have watched over the last 20 years!

    Looking forward to 5th season of Friday Night Lights. It is such a shame that it is not coming back for a 6th. There is so much absolute rubbish on TV that is allowed to go on and on and a brilliant show like FNL is thrown under the bus!
