The ‘Friday Night Lights’ 10-year reunion is happening in Austin
You can keep your Denver Broncos, and your Carolina Panthers, now that you mention it. The only Panthers we care about are from Dillon. And they’re coming to Austin.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the cast of “Friday Night Lights” will gather for ATX Television Festival this year. According to EW:
“The ‘FNL’ reunion comes 10 years after the show’s NBC premiere (and five years after the acclaimed drama ended) and includes a ‘Panther Field’ meetup with a pep rally, live music, tailgating activities, and photo ops. Participants will be announced at a later date. “
As long as Connie Britton’s hair is there, we’re happy. To tide you over until the lineup reveal, remember that time the Statesman talked to Tim Riggins himself (aka actor Taylor Kitsch) in December.
