Connie Britton Addresses "Friday Night Lights" Reunion Rumors
Tami Taylor has spoken.
Friday Night Lights has been off the air for nearly a decade and fans still haven’t given up hope that the beloved Texas football drama will return.
Connie Britton, who played Tami Taylor on the television series that ran for five seasons between 2006 and 2011, recently addressed rumors that a movie reboot was in the works.
"Is that still being talked about?” Britton asked on Sunday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "Guys, I just don’t think it’s going to happen. I don’t.”
"I think that the consensus is they want to just let it lie,” the 51-year-old continued. "I’ve kind of come full circle because I was all for it in the beginning. I think if we had done it early on. But now I really do see how special it is to be able to end a series in that way. It was just so beautifully done and beautifully arched. I think we kind of did it.”

But that’s not to say that the premise of H.G. Bissinger's best-selling book based on the 1988 Permian High School Panthers is dead. Just don’t expect Britton or her co-stars Kyle Chandler, Taylor Kitsch, Jesse Plemons to be involved in any kind of reincarnation.
Earlier this year Variety reported that Universal was in the final stages of negotiations with for a new movie version of Friday Night Lights. The project is said to involve a new story with a fresh setting and cast of characters.
Luckily, you can stream Friday Night Lights in all its glory on Hulu and Amazon Prime.
