“Friends from College” Renewed by Netflix for a Second Season
Netflix is prepping a pretty stellar lineup for viewers over the next few years, including season two of GLOW, season three of Fuller House, and a multi-year, multi-million-dollar development deal with the amazing Shonda Rhimes. Now there’s good news for fans of Friends from College too, as the star-studded series has just been renewed for a second season.
Netflix ordered up eight new episodes just over a month after the series — which was created and executive produced by Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco — debuted on July 14. The show received lukewarm reviews from both critics and audiences but features a stellar ensemble cast as a group of Harvard alumni trying to manage the trials and tribulations of careers and relationships while also dealing with the fact that they’re heading into their forties.
Among the aforementioned friends from college? Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), The Wonder Years’ Fred Savage (Max), and Jae Suh Park (Marianne). Billy Eichner also appears as Max’s partner, Felix.
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for season two, but it’ll probably be a while before we rejoin the friend group. In the meantime, we can also look forward to more 13 Reasons Why and Ozark, plus that two-hour Sense8 finale.
