"Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!" That's exactly how everyone in the room felt when the Friday Night Lights cast reunited at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, on Friday.
The cast returned to their beloved Panther Field to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the show first airing on NBC. While many of the cast members were expected to attend, fans didn't expect so see practically all of them -- especially fan favorite Connie Britton! Joining the beloved drama's matriarch for the get-together, which included a tailgate party and pep rally, were Scott Porter, Gaius Charles, Stacey Oristano, Adrianne Palicki, Matt Lauria, Brad Leland, and Jesse Plemons, along with about a dozen other of the show's actors.
Britton spoke to ET's Leanne Aguilera ahead of the reunion, revealing that she had just heard about the day's good Nashville news along with everyone else. The country music-centered drama was cancelled by NBC earlier this year, but on Friday, CMT announced it would be picking up the show.
"I don't know anything! Literally, I found out today like everybody else," the 49-year-old actress told ET. "I have no information to tell you!"
It was not lost on Britton that avid fans helped save Friday Night Lights from leaving our TV screens forever just a few years ago. "Look, that was an example of fans being really enthusiastic and we really owe that all to the fans," she said. "The same [happened] with Friday Night Lights and Nashville is experiencing the same good fortune."
