A redistricting plan leaves Dillon divided. Coach Taylor is faced with the daunting task of building an East Dillon Lions football team from scratch. Tensions follow him off the field as he and Tami find themselves increasingly at odds with one another and the roles the redistricting has forced upon them. Julie decides to join her dad and Landry at East Dillon. Meanwhile, recent graduate Tim Riggins struggles with his plans for the future. Vince, whose incredible speed positions him as the Lions best and possibly only hope, lacks the discipline and temper of a true team player. He instantly clashes with the team's new rising star, running back Luke. Other newcomers include Jess, an expert in the sport who will prove to be a crucial part of the new team.
The award-winning series returns for an emotional and spectacular final season, and everyone is playing for keeps. Will the Lions go state? Will the coach leave the team? That may be the least of the town's worries in the powerful series finale that culminates in a true championship ending to the popular show.
The critically-acclaimed drama is back on NBC with a new season, and this time, there's no telling what the future holds for the town of Dillon. When freshman hotshot J.D. McCoy shows off his arm, the town gets McCoy fever and Matt Saracen is demoted to QB2. An injury brings a sudden end to Smash's dreams, Riggins is convinced into a local money-making scheme and Lyla is accepted to a prestigious university -- but her hopes are crushed when her dad reveals a dire secret. Tyra leaves town and Landry is left questioning his feelings. And when Julie realizes she still has a thing for Matt, is it too late? Coach Taylor continues to juggle his responsibilities and growing pressures while his wife Tami has her hands full with a new career as the Dillon high school principal.
