The final play is Feb. 9

The critically acclaimed high school football saga Friday Night Lights will sign off on Feb. 9 five phenomenal seasons. Produced by NBC, the series attracted a small-but-loyal following since 2006, eventually avoiding cancellation by shifting its first-run episodes from network television to DirecTV. “It was really sad knowing that was the end,” Friday Night Lights star Aimee Teegarden told “I don’t think it’s really hit me yet. I think maybe after the final episode airs on NBC, then maybe it will finally hit me.” The final season of Friday Night Lights will re-air on NBC beginning April 15 – 10 days after its DVD release (April 5).
