Taylor Kitsch and Adrianne Palicki Returning to FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Taylor Kitsch / Adrianne Palicki

As FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS heads toward its series finale, two more stars have signed on to return to the show. The most recent additions are Taylor Kitsch and Adrianne Palicki who have signed deals to return for multiple episodes.

The pair are returning for the fifth and likely final season of Friday Night Lights, reprising their roles of Tyra (Palicki) and Tim (Kitsch) in the process. Palicki will return for the final two episodes of the show at the end of season five while Kitsch will return for the final four episodes. The fifth season will debut this fall on DirecTV.

Kitsch and Palicki are among a few former stars of the series returning during the final season. Zach Gilford (who plays Matt) will return for four episodes, including the finale, Jesse Plemons (who plays Landry) is in talks to appear in the finale, and Scott Porter (who plays Jason Street) is also coming back and will appear in episode 7.

In one word, season 5 is going to be “epic”!
