Some familiar faces are returning to Dillon, Texas for the final episodes of the fifth and (by all indications) final season of Friday Night Lights.
EW’s Ausiello is reporting that Tim (Taylor Kitsch), Tyra (Adrianne Palicki), Matt (Zack Gilford), and Jason (Scott Porter) will be returning to their old stomping grounds for the show’s swan song.
No word on when in the season Kitsch will appear but Palicki has agreed to appear in the last two episodes of Friday Night Lights. Porter will appear in episode seven of season five and word is that Jesse Plemens (as Landry) is in discussions to return as well.
Meanwhile, Gilford will appear in four episodes — two mid-season and the final pair. When asked if he believes the show is ending with season five, Gilford said, “To my knowledge, it’s pretty much done and they’re writing an ending to the show. I know a lot of people were not satisfied with the Lost finale — I personally loved it — but I think it’s nice when they can write towards a [series finale]. If you have a finite amount of episodes then you can come up with a satisfying ending.”
What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing the characters return? Who else would you like to see come back?
