Connie Britton ‘refuses’ to do Friday Night Lights revival

Connie Britton isn’t keen on taking part in a potential revival of TV show Friday Night Lights.
The actress co-starred with Kyle Chandler in the popular NBC football drama series, with the duo playing guidance counsellor Tami Taylor and head football coach Eric Taylor respectively.
Friday Night Lights garnered a strong fan following during its five season run between 2006 and 2011, but Connie apparently has no interest in any possible reboot.
“Connie Britton is the hold out. She won’t. She refuses to do it,” Kyle told Us Weekly, adding jokingly, “Connie refuses to do it so I’m not going to do it without her.”
Friday Night Lights was nominated for several Primetime Emmy Awards, with dedicated fans hoping for a new instalment for many years. While TV shows such as Twin Peaks, Arrested Development and Fuller House have been revived for new seasons, Kyle admitted that he hasn’t been informed of any official comeback plans for the programme.
Meanwhile, the 51-year-old has been busy with a series of major projects, including roles in films such as Argo and Manchester by the Sea.
He has also recently wrapped on filming Netflix drama show Bloodline, which will conclude after three seasons.
Kyle admits he’ll miss working on Bloodline, as he enjoyed having a collaborative relationship with the writers.
“As far as the character, I won’t miss that, but it’s the real people that you miss,” he shared.
Since departing Friday Night Lights, Connie has appeared as Rayna Jaymes in musical drama series Nashville, and also had a role in The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
