'Friday Night Lights' Renewed

NBC has ordered two more seasons of the critically lauded but ratings-challenged series "Friday Night Lights."

The network and DirecTV have finalized a deal for a 26-episode order -- two seasons of 13 episodes each -- of the UMS/Imagine TV-produced drama about a Texas high school football team. Under the pact, "FNL" will continue to premiere on DirecTV, with a second window on NBC.

Following the model "FNL" introduced this season, four actors whose characters are graduating -- Minka Kelly, Zach Gilford, Taylor Kitsch and Adrianne Palicki -- are not expected to continue as regulars but will return for arcs. Kelly recently signed as the lead on the CW pilot "Body Politic."
