“Friday Night Lights” starts a new season on NBC


Sports fans are a dedicated bunch, which is why it doesn’t surprise me that the football-based show Friday Night Lights has remained a hit, despite lagging between seasons. DirecTV users have been able to see all 13 episodes of Season 3, but the rest of us have been made to wait for the show’s return to NBC, and it finally happens tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET.

One of the most exciting aspects of this season, for us here at AfterEllen.com, especially, is the addition of the new character Devin, a teenage indie-rock girl who is in a band with Landry.

She also happens to be gay.

What will happen with the character of Devin? I’m not sure, as it is a show about football and doesn’t focus too much on Landry’s musical aspirations. And now that Devin has crushed Landry’s crush by coming out, who knows if she will actually have much more screen time. The character and the actress who plays her (Stephanie Hunt) isn’t even listed on IMDB, so I’m a little skeptical.

Will you be watching to find out what happens with Devin, if anything at all? Or perhaps you were already into the show for Minka Kelly.
