Friday Night Lights is one of those shows that never gets old—no matter how many times you binge-watch it on Netflix. But if you're looking for new ways to get your fix of Coach Taylor and co., we’ve got you covered, too.
For the next few weeks, some of your favorite FNL actors are popping up in places outside your queue and we’ve got the scoop on what to expect. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose—whether you catch one appearance, or all three.
We're so used to seeing Eric Taylor in his Panthers polo, it's sort of jarring to see actor Kyle Chandler decked out in 1950s garb in the drama Carol. Unlike in FNL, where he was always the voice of reason, Chandler plays the villain here, as Harge, the jealous husband of Cate Blanchett’s Carol. When she falls for Therese (Rooney Mara) and distances herself from her loveless marriage, Harge begins to question her ability to be a good mother. In theaters Nov. 20.
In FNL, Vince was a little rough around the edges, but ultimately a big softie. And Michael B. Jordan continues that streak in Creed, a new chapter of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky series. Jordan plays Adonis Johnson, the son of Apollo Creed, who heads to Philly to track down his dad’s old sparring partner and train with him for the heavyweight championship of the world. And FNL fans get a chance to root on their QB 1 again (while gawking at his muscles). In theaters Nov. 25.
The Following Week
After a brief break for the holiday, Nashville is back on Dec. 2 with a brand new episode and lots of Connie Britton (aka FNL's Tami Taylor). You’ll see Rayna struggle with her artist, Markus Keen (Riley Smith), when he throws out a song from his new album right before it drops. If Smith looks familiar to you, it might be from his stint on True Detective, which also starred FNL alum Taylor Kitsch. Nashville airs on ABC, Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
