Finally! UK fans of Friday Night Lights will be able to see the conclusion to the award winning US drama. After Sky Atlantic, confirmed via twitter that they will be showing the final 3 seasons of Friday Night Lights.

After initially being picked-up by ITV, Friday Night Lights suffered from being placed on ITV4 on Friday night's. Which resulted in poor viewing figures and season 2 airing at later and later time slots. With the final episodes of season 2 airing in the small hours of the morning.

This resulted in UK fans being unable to see the final 3 seasons as ITV opted not to pick-up the final 3 seasons. While the first 2 seasons have been available on DVD in the UK, the remaining seasons haven't due to the fact that they haven't aired on UK TV. Even in the USA Friday Night Lights struggled to complete its 5 season run. Having to rely on cable channel DirectTV to partner with NBC to make the final 3 seasons.

However fans were giving hope when Sky Atlantic picked up season 1 and 2 of Friday Night Lights earlier this, airing them this summer. As soon as new fans found out that the show had 5 seasons and Sky Atlantic had only picked-up the first 2 seasons, questions were being asked as to the airing of the final 3 seasons.
Now finally Sky Atlantic has confirmed that UK fans will be able to watch seasons 3, 4 and 5 of Friday Night Lights and no doubt will result in the complete DVD box-set beng released in the UK soon after. For those without access to Sky Atlantic.

Friday Night Lights, created by Peter Berg is a drama series set in the small town of Dillon Texas. A town which centres around the high school football(American) team. Staring Kyle Chandler as coach Eric Taylor, Connie Britton as his wife Tami Taylor and their daughter Julie Taylor played by Aimee Teegarden.
