This summer, after five critically adored seasons, the bulbs of NBC’s Friday Night Lights will go dark, and fans of the beloved series are already wondering how they’ll live without their favorite show. Thankfully, they’ll be able to see many of the series’ stars in other high-profile projects. We’ve got the scoop on where the darlings of Dillon, Texas, will head next. (And if that’s just not enough, fans can pick up the final season on DVD — available now, following its run on DirecTV.)
