The award-winning series returns for an emotional and spectacular final season, and everyone is playing for keeps. The East Dillon Lions are back and competing at a top caliber level, but that only means the town’s expectations are running higher than ever. Egos boil over, and Coach Taylor is forced to mediate tensions on the team. But when a controversy erupts that takes the whole town by storm, he feels he’s losing his grip on the team and threatens to suspend Vince in an attempt to regain control. Luke faces pressure at the prospect of becoming QB-1, Billy learns some surprising news from Mindy, Becky starts a surprising new job and Tami is caught off guard by Julie’s plans. And when it’s time for Tim’s parole hearing, family and friends return from seasons past to lend their support and help Tim reassess his life. Will the Lions go state? Will the coach leave the team? That may be the least of the town’s worries in the powerful series finale that culminates in a true championship ending to the popular show.
