It's official: NBC and DirecTV have come to terms on a two-season, 26-episode pickup of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.
Deal calls for the Imagine TV/Universal Media Studios drama skein to continue through a fourth and fifth season of 13 episodes each. As they did this season, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS's third, DirecTV will get the first shot at airing the segs commercial-free before they bow on NBC. The negotiations between the Peacock and DirecTV hit a roadblock last week but ultimately resumed and the agreement was reached today.
Hopefully the GUIDING LIGHT renewal announcement will be next.
