Friday Night Lights gets order for six more shows

It’s not a touchdown, but I’ll take it. NBC has ordered six more episodes of Friday Night Lights, according to TV Guide.

No, it’s not a full renewal notice, but it is an indication that the show is returning next season.

I suddenly have the urge to shake some pompoms and do a back handspring in celebration. If you won’t join me, then how about just a simple “Woo Hoo!”

Friday Night Lights has received plenty of critical acclaim, including the prestigious Peabody Award for excellence. But, it has failed to score the kind of ratings NBC wants. That has made TV fans, such as myself, nervous that this brilliant show would have its lights turned off prematurely.

The season finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC.

After the finale, head over to NBC.com to live blog with the show’s stars, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton. Submit your questions for the stars by clicking on the previous link.

If you’ve missed Friday Night Lights, NBC has made it easy to catch up. The network’s Web site features full past episodes of the show.
