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.

    Friday Night Lights is and will be the best television series there was ever on the air. It is an incredible show with amazing messages and morals relayed to the viewers throughout it. It is the best put together as well rounder show I have ever seen in my lifetime and I doubt that will ever change. I was a soccer player throughout my life but I admire this show more than anything to do with soccer ever. This show unlike the countless other shows has a great deal of substance behind it which makes it so impeccable and relatable to many of its viewers. I believe it would be a massive error in judgement if this show was not continue on to more seasons because in every imaginable way it is the best all around television show ever produced. Bring more seasons please. Thank you -Devin Bender

    Friday Night Lights is the best show there is and I don't think you guys should stop making it
  • EmilyCountry: usa2015-01-27 14:19:55
    Season 6 is a necessity! Agree with a lot of the comments - There is so much to be gained from watching this show. The relationships on this show reflect real life relationships, situations people deal with and how they deal with them. This show is a very positive influence. So many things were left un finished when this show ended. The fans would like to see what the Dillon Superteam does this year - also, a wedding for Matt & Julie, How coach shapes his new team in Philly. Do Tim and Tyra end up together in his new house? Please re-air this show!! So many people I know would view and support it!

    This show has so many things to be gained from it other than just entertainment value. It is a show that everyone in the family can relate to and find something to become passionate about. I would like you guys to consider the things that people can learn from this show on top of the entertainment factor. Great actors, great vision from the producers, great story, and just a great show for all the family.

    This is honestly the best show i have ever seen. I'm so addicted to it and really just want another seen it. I didn't see this show until it was too late in 2015 and finished the whole series in less than a week. Please make a season 6 and more after that, there are plenty of ideas. I really want to see what happens to Julie and Matt, like they could start a family like the Taylor family.
  • TroyCountry: United states2015-01-04 03:21:01
    This just may have been the best football based show I've ever seen. I couldn't put my tablet down I was so into it, I mean i know it touched some people's hearts . Wish it never ended .
  • caleb justiceCountry: united states 2014-12-26 16:13:25
    I feel that the ending just wasnt right like what happened to lyla garrity , did tim ever finish his house , and how did coach taylor come back to coach vince howard for the panthers again
  • Marie CroninCountry: Canada.2014-12-22 01:24:56
