A Cleansing Burst of GREAT News

Looks like Friday Night Lights is sticking around for at least two more (short) seasons. I wish it'd get longer season orders (a standard network season is 22 episodes) but I'll take 13 a year over none any day!

Congrats to the entire cast and crew on the pickup and for just generally being so damn awesome.

Relatedly, it's also been reported that upon it's return, Minka Kelly (Lyla) and Adrienne Pollicki (Tyra) will no longer be full-time cast members. They'll both be given proper sendoffs similar to that of Smash and Jason Street and then their characters will leave Dillon behind. I'll be sorry to see them leave but it makes sense creatively and I have faith that the writers of this show certainly know how to bid adieu with respect.

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't Lose.
