Friday Night Lights Not Yet Dimmed at NBC

While it not might be the renewal they were hoping for, fans of NBC's critically praised (if ratings-starved) drama Friday Night Lights might have something to hope for.

NBC has ordered six additional scripts of the football-themed drama from Imagine and NBC Universal. The news comes on the heels of an additional six-script order for fellow NBC on-the-bubble drama Medium, which received a script order earlier this week.

While fans shouldn't stop their petitions to save the series quite yet, the script order does potentially bode well for a second season order on Friday Night Lights.

Stay tuned.
