The 'Friday Night Lights' Cast Came Back in a Big Way in 2013

Many people will say that 2013 was the year of Miley Cyrus, or the year of Breaking Bad, or the year of North West, the only baby who could manage to outshine the future King of England. All of these things may be true, but we prefer to think of 2013 as "The Year The Friday Night Lights Cast Finally Made it Big."

Over the course of the last 12 months, seemingly every alum from the beloved NBC drama made waves, whether it was garnering Oscar talk for a breakthrough role, playing a Neo-Nazi on a hit TV show, or earning a fourth consecutive Emmy nomination while continuing to be the most perfect human being on the planet. Sure, there were some missteps — sorry, Taylor Kitsch and Adrienne Palicki, try again in 2014 — but overall, the cast of Friday Night Lights did amazingly well career-wise this year.

We're thrilled, of course, because if anyone deserves success, it's the alums from FNL, who spent years giving their all to a fantastic but criminally underrated TV show. Now that 2013 is at its end, let's take a look back at all that the residents of Dillon, Texas accomplished over this last year.
