According to the Emmy nominee, the show's executive producer and original film's director, Peter Berg, is ready to revisit the football world of Dillon, Texas.

"Pete is totally fired up to do it and I know Jason Katims is talking about writing a script. I think it's really a matter of... getting everyone's busy schedules aligned and making it happen," the actress continued. "It kind of feels like there's a lot of commitment to it."
