Friday Night Lights still lives on as one of the best TV shows to ever grace the small screen. Fans of the show are just as passionate about the fictional town of Dillon, Texas today as they were when it originally aired. The series has even gained a new, broader audience since becoming available on streaming services.
The show focuses on a small Texas town where high school football reigns supreme. While the series is based on football, it’s the relationships of the players and their families that give the show heart. Coach Eric Taylor and wife Tami are easily one of the best onscreen couples ever. They mentored half the teens in town and portrayed a believable, honest and loving relationship.
Friday Night Lights was nominated for numerous awards during its 2006 to 2011 run. The show won an Emmy for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series in 2007. In 2011, Kyle Chandler also won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
Most of the cast went on to have huge careers. Connie Britton plays the lead in successful drama series Nashville, which recently migrated to CMT. Coach Taylor actor Kyle Chandler is now the star of Emmy-nominated series Bloodline.
