Speaking with TV Guide at Thursday night's Entourage premiere party, Connie Britton said she has heard "a lot of positive talk" about Friday Night Lights possibly getting a Season 2 pickup, but added, "You never know until you know."

Britton suggested that the "old-school ratings" system hasn't given the acclaimed drama its due, noting, "When we go out [in public], so many people seem to be loving it, so I really do think it's building an audience. And the people who are watching it are so committed to it. We have our fingers crossed, hoping [for a renewal], but we feel very optimistic about it." - Additional reporting by Carita Rizzo
