Friday Night Lights, Minka Kelly

NBC/Van Redin

I've just heard from reliable inside sources that Friday Night Lights just received an official 22-episode order for next season!


As you fans know very well, this addictive Texas-football drama has been on the bubble for the past few months, waiting to receive the official word that it will return for a second season.

Well, flip my biscuit and color me giddy (that's Texas talk!) 'cause sources tell me the official word of FNL's pickup came down today, and the cast is getting ready to fly out to New York City to attend NBC's upfront presentation.

(And fans, you know I'll be there to pinch all those footballers' booties for ya. So, post any questions or messages you have for the cast below!)

Meanwhile, in other NBC news, I'm told that two pilots have received an official pickup: Chuck (unwitting-hero drama starring Adam Baldwin and Sarah Lancaster) and Journeyman (time-traveling drama starring Kevin McKidd).

NBC will make these official pickup announcements Monday.
