'Friday Night Lights' Stay On for Two More Seasons

Yes, Virginia there is a TV god! Mike Ausiello at EW.com is reporting that his sources at NBC are confirming that PTR fave Friday Night Lights has been renewed for not one, but TWO more seasons (insert happy dance here). Special thanks to LillyKat for the heads up. Here's the full story from Ausiello:

Touch-freaking-down!
Sources at NBC are now confirming what I first reported earlier this month: DirecTV and NBC have come to terms on a deal that ensures Friday Night Lights will stick around for not one but two more seasons!
And I repeat: Touch-freaking-down!
Although NBC declined to comment, my Peacock insider says the pact guarantees that FNL will see a fourth and fifth season of 13 episodes each. Similar to this season's shared-window experiment, DirecTV will get first crack at the episodes followed by an encore run on NBC.
Let's get a chant going in the comments section! And while you're at it, pray that the show's creative mastermind, Jason Katims, finds a way to juggle both FNL and that prospective Parenthood series he's producing for NBC. Ditto director Jeffrey Reiner, who's attached to NBC's Trauma pilot. Losing one would be devastating; losing both would be a catastrophe. So how about we lose neither? You with me?

Now, we just have to keep our collective fingers crossed that Cold Case, which seems to be experiencing a sort of rebirth as of late, gets the same glorious news.
