Friday Night Lights Reunion

Friday Night Lights Reunion Photos: Connie Britton Joins Cast at ATX Fest

A handful of Dillon Panthers (along with a few East Dillon Lions) assembled Friday in Austin for a good old-fashioned high school reunion.

More than five years after we said goodbye to Friday Night Lights, a generous helping of the show’s stars — including Connie Britton, Scott Porter, Matt Lauria, Zach Gilford, Adrianne Palicki, Jesse Plemons and Stacey Oristano — took part in a tailgate on the actual Panther Field, as part of the ATX Television Festival.

Though Kyle Chandler (TVLine’s Performer of the Week!) was unable to join his former co-stars in Austin, they made sure to keep Coach Taylor’s legacy — including those six words — alive:

Volume up y'all! You know the drill! #FNLTailgate #TelevisionForever #TexasForever #ATXTVs5
