The series finale of Friday Night Lights airs on NBC tonight and as fans of the stunning drama mourn the end of their show, there’s now a chance it might live on at the movies.

Multiple reports say show executive producer Peter Berg, who directed the original film version of the property, is interested in making a film that continues the story of Eric and Tammy Taylor, played by back to back Emmy nominees Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.

Grantland first broke the news when site editor Bill Simmons tweeted the following:

PS: We didn’t put it in the oral history, but Peter Berg told us he wants to do an FNL movie with Chandler/Britton off the final episode.

Congrats to the show on its four Emmy nominations!
