Adrianne Palicki will soon be calling another part of Texas home to film “Lone Star,” but she hasn’t forgotten “Friday Night Lights.”
“I’m in the final two episodes,” Palicki tells Zap2it. “It was amazing … a lot of the original cast came back and so you get to really say goodbye to everybody. It’s going to be emotional but it’s going to be really good.”
“Friday Night Lights” just wrapped production on Season 5, which will be the show’s last season. The final few weeks of taping came on the heels of Best Actor and Actress Emmy nominations for Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, who anchor the show as Eric and Tami Taylor. Palicki tells us the feeling on set after the nominations came out was incredible.
“Finally! The feeling on that show once everybody got nominated was like, ‘It’s about time!” she laughs. “And to go out with that was so huge, it’s a good way.”
The final season of “Friday Night Lights” will air this fall on DirecTV and in the spring of 2011 on NBC. “Lone Star,” starring James Wolk, Jon Voight and Palicki, premieres Monday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
