Friday Night Lights: Petition for Season Six of the TV Show

Friday Night Lights petitionFriday Night Lights has been renewed through season five but it looks like that will be the end. NBC and DirecTV haven’t made an announcement that the show’s officially cancelled but, according to many in the cast and crew, there won’t be a sixth season.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for DirecTV and NBC is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, it’s not.

However, if you like Friday Night Lights and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be directly counted. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Purchase official series DVDs from Amazon or another retailer.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via snail-mail to: Mr. Jeff Gaspin, Chairman, NBC, 3000 W. Alameda, Burbank, CA 91523, RE: Friday Night LIghts
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To NBC, DirecTV, Film 44, Imagine Television, and Universal Media Studios:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching Friday Night Lights on DirecTV and/or on the NBC network. We keep coming back to this drama week after week and year after year. The acting is excellent and the stories are wonderfully engaging.

Please find a way to keep Friday Night Lights on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on NBC and DirecTV or, if necessary, on another NBC-related channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    This show needs to continue. It never gets boring like other tv series, and it shows a lot of good character & lessons from coach taylor. This is the best tv series ever created.

  • Barbara KingCountry: United States2014-09-27 20:40:16
    PLEASE make a Season 6.. I cant tell how much my family and I love this show. I have not missed 1 episode in 5 seasons and I hate the thought of never seeing it again. I'm currently watching reruns each day and they are just as wonderful the second time around. Each show had me sitting on the edge of my seat, holding my breath for whats next. ALL of the characters are like family now after 5 seasons and its like loosing a part of our family if ya'll don't come back. PLEASE Reconsider and bring us season 6.

  • tomCountry: United States2014-09-06 23:34:45
    Ever since the first 10 minutes of the first episode, I have been hooked. I have been up for weeks watching at least 2 episodes per day. I just watched the final episode of season 5 and it literally had me in tears because it was such an amazing show! It can't end... it just can't! Please bring it back.
  • Grant GuffeyCountry: USA2014-09-04 22:20:37
    Ever since I watched the first episode, i was afraid to watch with the fear of it ending. I am on the last episode and I don't want to watch it because I don't want it to end... It's a part of me, I can relate to characters and I felt a connection with various things in the storyline. If it is brought back, many people will be happy, not just me...
  • Justin WillisCountry: United States 2014-08-31 14:48:09

  • Mathew ruizCountry: United States2014-08-23 01:39:12
    Please please bring the show back. I know sooooooo many people willing to watch!!!!!!!
  • Jay YadaCountry: USA2014-08-21 05:08:26
    this was such a fantastic show about football, love, life, growing up and just plain awesome. the writing was great and the best part was by the end, you never realized that you were not only watching coach taylor grow, but tammy taylor and pretty much every character on that show. and ultimately it was about sacrifice for her job at the end of her journey through the five seasons. this was an amazing cast and story that needs to either get a movie or get brought back. so many people i know were late to the show and did not pick it up until after it was on its way out. they can identify with the characters and that's what makes this series great. please bring it back!
  • Bev FernleyCountry: Canada2014-08-13 18:25:13
    Ihave watched Netflix five seasons. A wonderful show, great characters, well defined. Love the dialogue. I also enjoy the writing. Please return to season six on NBC. I came to this show late. So many people recommended it to me. Finally got to it.....a five season marathon. Can't wait for season six. It is an amazing show. My husband, who is an Olympic coach loves it too. We totally identify with the coach, his wife and their devotion to the kids. It was our life for forty years, a dream life, impacting so many young people. They learned to follow their dream.
  • Vicroria LaCarriereCountry: USA2014-08-10 20:38:16
