All 5 Seasons of ‘Friday Night Lights’ Just Hit Netflix & Fans Are Flipping Out

To some folks, the phrase “Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose” might sound like a cheesy football slogan. But to Friday Night Lights fans, it means so much more.

All five seasons of Friday Night Lights are now streaming on Netflix, and fans are thrilled that the show is about to have another well-deserved spike in popularity.

Netflix celebrated the exciting news on Instagram, which prompted people to show their appreciation in the comments section. One follower wrote, “Texas forever.” Another added, “I think I may need to watch this again. An all-time great.” Amen to that.

Friday Night Lights follows Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler), the head coach of a high school football team in the rural town of Dillon, Texas. The story is inspired by the 1990 book by H. G. Bissinger, which was also adapted into a movie in 2004.

The show originally aired on NBC for two seasons and then DirectTV for the last three (followed by another syndication on NBC). Other cast members included Connie Britton (Tami Taylor), Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor), Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggins), Minka Kelly (Lyla Garrity), Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen), Scott Porter (Jason Street), Michael B. Jordan (Vince Howard), Gaius Charles (Smash Williams), Jesse Plemons (Landry Clarke), Adrianne Palicki (Tyra Collette) and Matt Lauria (Luke Cafferty).

The official Netflix synopsis reads, “Eric Taylor faces enormous pressure when he signs on as the new coach of a small-town Texas football team that’s poised to win the state championship.”

Oh, how we’ve missed you (and your inspirational pep talks), Coach Taylor.
