"Friday Night Lights" Season 5 has been ordered and will return in 2010-2011.

"Friday Night Lights"on NBC and Direct TV expands on the hit feature film and best-selling book. The award-winning show centers on life in Dillon, Texas, where high school football brings the community together—and the drama of small town life threatens to tear it apart.

As "Friday Night Lights" Season 4 opens, a redistricting plan has left Dillon a town divided. Having been ousted from his role as head coach at Dillon High School, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) finds himself faced with the daunting task of building a football team from scratch as well as motivating and disciplining the unmanageable East Dillon Lions players. Tensions follow Coach Taylor off the field and into the home as he and Tami (Connie Britton), who remains Principal of West Dillon High, find themselves increasingly at odds with one another and the adversarial roles the redistricting has forced upon them. As one of the main proponents of redistricting Dillon, Tami bears the brunt of criticism from the very unhappy parents and students who have been zoned out of West Dillon and into the less desirable East Dillon.

An integral member of the newly formed East Dillon Lions is Vince (Michael B. Jordan, "All My Children"), whose incredible speed positions him as the Lions best, and possibly only, hope despite his undisciplined skills and unpredictable temper. Vince quickly finds himself at odds with the team's new pretty boy and rising star, running back Luke (Matt Lauria, "Lipstick Jungle"). Luke held great promise playing with the Dillon Panthers, however due to the redistricting, he is now forced to play for the East Dillon Lions. Other newcomers include Jess (Jurnee Smollett, "The Great Debaters"), the daughter of a onetime NFL hopeful, who is an expert in the sport and will prove to be a crucial part of the new East Dillon team; and Becky, played by newcomer Madison Burge. A fifteen-year-old beauty queen who isn't afraid to use her looks to get what, and who, she wants, Becky quickly establishes herself at the top of the East Dillon social hierarchy.

The fourth season will also focus on the fate of several returning characters including last season's graduates Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch), Lyla Garrity (Minka Kelly), and Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) as well as Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden) and Landry Clark (Jesse Plemons), whose lives have also been affected by the town's redistricting. Additionally, Coach Taylor finds himself further troubled by a new rivalry with his former team, the Dillon Panthers, headed up by his replacement Wade Aikman (Drew Waters) and the man who masterminded his downfall, Joe McCoy (D.W Moffett).

Season after season, "Friday Night Lights" is hailed as one of the top ten shows by numerous publications such as Time magazine, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times and TV Guide. "Friday Night Lights" also has been honored three times (2006/2007/2009) as an American Film Institute (AFI) Television Program of the Year, received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award in 2006 and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series in 2007.

The series is executive-produced by Peter Berg (the film "Friday Night Lights," "Hancock"), who also wrote and directed the pilot, Jason Katims ("Parenthood"), Brian Grazer ("Frost/Nixon," "The Da Vinci Code"), David Nevins ("Arrested Development") and Sarah Aubrey ("Trauma"). "Friday Night Lights" is a production of Universal Media Studios, Imagine Entertainment and Film 44.
