(NEW YORK) -- After five seasons, the critically acclaimed drama Friday Night Lights will air its final episode on DirecTV at 9 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday night.
The series, based on the Buzz Bissinger book of the same name, followed Texas high school football coach Eric Taylor, played by Kyle Chandler, his wife Tami Taylor, portrayed by Connie Britton, and his players through the years.
The show launched the career of former cast member Minka Kelly, who can now be seen in the film The Roommate.
If you do not have DirecTV, you'll be able to watch the final season of Friday Night Lights once it makes its NBC debut on April 15.
