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 is the best series I have ever watched! I saw them all in one week... during my exams and that isn't like me. It would really please me if the season six would be announced because it would be a great finale to an amazing programme.

    My name is Coach Andrew Chirico. Friday night lights has inspired me to make my career path a high school football coach. It has inspired me to sign up for college, something I would not have done at this point otherwise, Coach Taylor, Matt Sarasen, Tim Riggins, and the whole team has the ability to inspire real life people to wish that to be there life, so why not continue the show and allow other young adolescents to be inspired. if there can be 1,262,765 + fake reality shows about dumb stuff out there... then there can be 1 real one about real life and football, the all American sport.

    One of the best real life TV shows that demonstrates the positive impact key people on public service can have on shaping the lives of young people. A demonstration of how parents need to aid in te development of children with simply leaving up to the school. It also set the stage for struggling youths to realize that no matter the circumstances life deals you, if you apply yourself to be the best of own ability, with or without help you can succeed in life. Thank you for the effort and compassion you have shown in telling a story about survival in a way that connects with people in real life.

We were disappointed that there were no more seasons. Just seems it could of kept going and we would of faithfully be watching. Love loved this show.

    Killing this show makes no sense. There could be so much more and never become boring.

    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!
  • yayaCountry: united states2015-01-22 14:53:30
