The Friday Night Lights movie is not happening

Yesterday, in an interview with Collider, Friday Night Lights executive producer Peter Berg killed any and all hope that there would be an FNL movie forthcoming:

“There’s not gonna be a movie.  We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn’t; I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen.”

While fans of the show might be upset about this news, I am here to help. You don't want your favorite TV series turning into a movie. Or possibly two. Where the second one is SO bad, the only way you can watch it is drunk. I am, of course, referring to Sex and the City. The series ended all wrapped up in a nice package with a pretty little bow and then the two movies swooped in like a toddler ripping the package to shreds. But I digress. Collider goes on to note that the series ended exactly as it should have:

While fans understandably want to spend more time with the Taylors, Friday Night Lights ended on a pitch perfect note with its series finale, which felt like a very fitting sendoff for the characters.

This show was already a spinoff of a movie, which was a spinoff of a book. So it would be a movie spunoff into a show spun back into a movie? No thanks. And, inevitably, messy things would need to happen to make the movie even worthwhile, and after such a perfect ending is that what you really want? I didn't think so!
