"Friday Night Lights" to Air Again over the Summer?

"Friday Night Lights" to Air Again over the Summer?

Could "Friday Night Lights" get a second chance at building an audience this summer? That's what NBC's official site for the show seems to suggest. Under "next on," the site now says: "Returns Sunday, May 27, 9/8 c."

Now, this could mean NBC is just showing a marathon of episodes — but it could also mean that the whole series will get a second airing over the summer. If that's the case, it shows that NBC is serious about building an audience for "FNL" and keeping it on the air despite shaky ratings. And it would be a positive sign for renewal; while I have reservations about the show getting a second season — which I'll explain in detail later today — I can't see why NBC would re-air a show it's canceled rather than promoting a new show or airing repeats of something that's returning in the fall.

I'll keep my eye on this and let you know what's happening for sure. Interestingly, NBC just made a similar non-announcement announcement about the return of "Studio 60." Apparently the network's choosing to do things quietly these days?

Hope this strategy works and the show pulls in new fans, enough to breathe life into a second season.

I heard the show is great and did not have a chance to watch so playing it over the summer would be a fantastic idea...I would totally tune in!

I never had a chance to get into this show before so it would be great if they choase to show the season from the beginning.
