Weeks ago, NBC ordered additional scripts for both Medium and Friday Night Lights. Though nothing official was said, this appeared to be a good sign that both series would be renewed for next season. Medium was renewed on Monday and now it appears Friday Night Lights has cheated death as well.

It’s likely that Lights will find a different time and/or night on the NBC schedule as well. We’ll know for sure once the dust settles on Monday at the network upfronts. Stay tuned!
