Kyle Chandler, star of NBC’s Friday Night Lights, confirmed that the perennially on-the-bubble drama will return for a third season.
In an interview taped Wednesday with
for National Public Radio’s Fresh Air, Chandler said a deal was struck that will spread costs and allow the series to continue.
According to a post on Bianculli’s blog, TV Worth Watching, Chandler, who plays high-school football coach Eric Taylor, said all that was left to sew up the deal was to “dot the i’s and cross the t’s.” He added that he was scheduled to report for shooting in Austin, Texas, where the show is set, in June.
Although reports of the series’ return have circulated for several weeks, with speculation of a deal involving satellite TV operator DirecTV, NBC has not commented on the show’s fate.

My husband and I really love the show. There aren't many shows we agree on so please don't take this one.

I really hope that this show returns for a 3rd season. It would be a shame to see another good show canceled.
