Friday Night Lights Season 4 now running

friday_night_lights_still_09In case you missed it, Friday Night Lights Season 4 started running this week. The new season takes you back to Dillon, Texas, where Coach Taylor (fired from the Panthers) has been forced to take a job at new rival school East Dillon High. The show is running on DirecTV’s 101 Network, where it is shown exclusively until NBC starts running the show in 2010.

The new season introduces a bunch of new characters, as well as bringing back favorites like indie-rocker Devin (Stephanie Hunt). Things aren’t exactly the same at East Dillon, where Coach Taylor (played by Kyle Chandler) is faced with the challenge of coaching a new team of players who aren’t exactly model students.

As expected, Friday Night Lights looked fantastic in high-definition and sounded great with surround sound.

Friday Night Lights Season 4 Episode 1 “East Of Dillon” was produced/directed by Peter Berg and written by Jason Katims. Like last year, Season 4 will consist of 13 episodes. The show is scheduled to run for two more years, as DirecTV and NBC renewed a partnership deal through the 2010/2011 season.

Friday Night Lights is normally shown on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.  A rebroadcast of the first episode in high-definition is scheduled for tonight, Oct. 30 at 9:00 on T101HD. Additional rebroadcasts will follow — you can view the full schedule here.

    The wife and I (being cable people) were growing quite impatient, waiting for NBC to start running one of our favorite shows.

    We’ve seen 2 episodes now, and boy am I ever disappointed!

    Dillon was a one HS town, so EVERY athlete in town was coming thru the Panther system. The idea that East Dillon would have NO players who ever played FB before is so preposterous I wanted to puke… and the facilites, PUHLEEESE, wht do they think this is 1950 where all the balcks were shuffled off to a run down shack on the other side of town? A new HS in east Dillon would be a NEW HS, with brand new facilities, including . Just take a look at where FNL has some some of their filming…Pflugerville HS. When they split up into two, Pflugerville Connally was all brand new, including a state of the art football field. Smae thing happened again when they added Pflugerville Hendrickson.

    And the forgiet….man don’t get me started.

    As for that mail box….

    (As previously stated) Dillon was a one HS town, if you lived in Dillon, you went to Dillon High, so what, pray tell, purpose would that mailbox serve?

    I’m afraid FNL has jumped the shark!
