Most television shows set in high school go to ridiculous lengths to keep the characters together long past graduation day (see: 'Beverly Hills, 90210' and 'Gossip Girl'). But when the time comes for the high school-ers on 'Friday Night Lights' to move on -- most of them actually do.
For season 4, which aired on DirecTV last fall and premieres tonight on NBC, 'Friday Night Lights' has introduced a new set of characters played by Michael B. Jordan, Jurnee Smollett and Matt Lauria. The three talked to TV Squad about joining the critically-acclaimed show.
Last season, after being forced out at Dillon High School, Coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) went over to the other side of town to field a team at the newly-reopened East Dillon. Jordan (who may be best known as Wallace on 'The Wire') plays troubled quarterback Vince Howard, while Lauria's Luke Cafferty is a star running back. Smollett's character, Jess Merriweather, has history with Vince, but also forms a friendship with transfer student Landry (Jesse Plemons).
