Good things come to those who wait: “Friday Night Lights” bumped a week

Fridaynight NBC has confirmed that the Peacock premiere of “Friday Night Lights” will now bow on Friday, May 7, instead of April 30.

Sorry, “FNL” fans. But c’mon, if you were truly a uber-“FNL” fan, you would have already watched the episodes on DirecTV, right? Right? 

NBC is pushing the show back a week in order to give the genealogy show “Who Do You Think You Are?” (which nows airs on Fridays at 8 p.m.) one more airing.

In case you forgot what’s happening at the start of “FNL” season four, here’s a handy little primer from NBC:

As season four opens, a redistricting plan has left Dillon a town divided. After being ousted from his role as head coach at Dillon High School, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) finds himself faced with the daunting task of building a football team from scratch as well as motivating and disciplining the unmanageable East Dillon Lions. Tensions follow Coach Taylor off the field as he and Tami (Connie Britton), who remains principal of West Dillon High, find themselves increasingly at odds with one another. The new year will also focus on the fate of several returning characters including last season’s graduates Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch), Lyla Garrity (Minka Kelly), and Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) as well as Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden) and Landry Clark (Jesse Plemons).
