Connie Britton is predicting that the door is closed on Friday Night Lights

Britton, who played Tami Taylor on the popular NBC drama, told Entertainment Tonight that she doesn't think there will be a reboot of the series. 

"We'll do a reunion for sure, like a cast reunion, [but] I don't see them going back into that story, at least with this cast," said the White Lotus actress. 

"I heard inklings a few years ago that they were gonna make another Friday Night Lights," she continued. "Now meanwhile, we know we've already had a movie, we already had this TV show, and then if they were to do it again with like, a whole different iteration of it, I don't know. I would think that would be sort of odd."

Friday Night Lights, which also starred Taylor Kitsch, Minka KellyJesse Plemons, Michael B. Jordan, Zach Gilford, Aimee Teegarden and Kyle Chandler, originally premiered in October 2006 and ran for five seasons, concluding in February 2011.

In her interview with ET, Britton — who is also starring in the film Joe Bell (in theaters Friday) — also mentioned the romance between her character and Chandler's Coach Eric Taylor, reassuring fans that "it worked out" between them. 

"Listen," she said, "that bond is tight. Airtight."

Britton said that it'd "be nice to see where Coach and Tammy are 15 years down the line," but added that she doesn't see "us going back into those stories and those particular characters' lives."

This past September, several of the actors worked together again to make an Instagram video, calling upon fans to make sure that they were registered to vote for the 2020 presidential election.
