Friday Night Lights: What Will Season 4 Look Like?
Friday Night Lights: What Will Season 4 Look Like?
Latest Friday Night Lights News>>

After watching the season finale of Friday Night Lights, there are a million questions buzzing in my head. Is Matt actually leaving for college? Will Lyla and Tim stay together? Will Landry and Tyra stay together? Will Riggin's Rigs be a colossal failure? How will Tim do in college? And the most important question of all: what will it be like to move to East Dillon High?

My heart absolutely broke for Eric (Kyle Chandler) as he struggled to keep his job. My heart broke even more knowing he'd be moved to East High. With the redistricting, all the good football players will be left at Dillon High, meaning Eric won't have much of a team next year. He made the Dillon High Panthers what they are today and to have that all ripped from him is a tragedy.

What in the world will Dillon, Texas look like with two high schools? Tami’s (Connie Britton) high school is going to be the number one rival of Eric’s high school. How will the team react to Coach Taylor leaving them? Obviously it’s not his choice but high schoolers tend to react emotionally. If they do handle it well, will the play for Coach Wade Aikman without batting an eye? They can’t mutiny because the district lines are drawn so that they have to attend Dillon.

I can’t say if all these questions make me excited or nervous for season 4. It would be awesome to watch Coach Taylor put together a team that beats Dillon but it’ll be bittersweet no matter what. His dad may be a jerk, but I love JD and his earnest spirit. Seeing him lose would hurt almost as much as seeing Eric lose. All I know is that it’s going to be hard.

Then there’s the really important question of who’s returning next season and how would they fit into the plot? The Friday Night Lights futures of Taylor Kitsch, Zach Gilford, Adrianne Palicki, and Minka Kelly all hang in the balance. If any of them stay, it’ll be complicated to fit UT, San Antonio State, Vanderbilt and Chicago College of the Arts into the storylines. But what would happen without them?

Where does Friday Night Lights go from here? I don’t know but I know it’s going to be an awesome (and well written, and heartfelt and earnest and beautifully filmed and acted) ride. I can’t wait.
