It was fourth and very long for the NBC series Friday Night Lights, but it appears as though a desperation pass has been caught and the chains are moving.
NBC has approved a second season of the well-received high school football drama and is expected to announce the news shortly, according to Variety. Friday Night Lights is a darling of critics, but its renewal was in question because of disappointing ratings.
The show follows a high school football coach, played by Kyle Chadler (Early Edition, Tour of Duty), as he takes his team toward the championship. Friday Night Lights debuted on October 3, 2006.
