It’s Official: ‘Friday Night Lights’ Is Never Coming Back

So much for Texas forever. Several cast members from the beloved television drama Friday Night Lights reunited at the ATX Television Festival in Austin this weekend, and in addition to reminiscing about the series, basically confirmed it’s never, ever coming back. For years, there had been rumors of a reboot or even a spin-off, but it looks like now, those dreams are dead.

Taylor Kitsch bluntly told fans, “I’ll never play Riggins again.” Minka Kelly (who played Lyla Garrity) added, “I think some things are better left [with people] wanting more.”

Despite crushing our hopes of ever returning to Dillon, the reunion did look like a lot of fun. Along with throwing a large tailgate party on the same football field where the series was shot, there was an exclusive performance from the greatest Christian rock band in the state of Texas, Crucifictorious.
