Reboots are coming at us left, right, and center, but not everyone thinks they’re realistic.

Fans of Friday Night Lights are still hoping that the NBCUniversal television show, which ran from 2006 to 2011, will be making a comeback, but one of its main stars is not so sure…

According to Variety, Connie Britton was asked whether a revival of the series was in the works, and she responded with a smile, saying, “You need to let that go.”

While it is not an official confirmation that we won’t see the Dillon Panthers again, it is pretty unlikely that producers would reboot the series without Britton, who played Tami Taylor, the wise wife of coach Eric Taylor.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last year, the actress told host Andy Cohen, “I’ve kind of come full circle because I was all for it in the beginning. I think if we had done it early on. But now I really do see how special it is to be able to end a series in that way. It was just so beautifully done and beautifully arched. I think we kind of did it.”

Even if the snow doesn’t return, at least we had those Friday nights.
