Netflix’s freshman series “Friends From College” is getting a second season, the video-streaming service confirmed today that the comedy will return in 2018 with eight new episodes. The series has been getting mixed-reviews from critics and viewers, but we highly recommend a test-run to see if it’s your kind of humor. While critics have been a little hard on the comedy, it does have a 72% approval rating with viewers on Rotten Tomatoes, so judge this one for yourself before writing it off.
In “Friends From College”, a group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) face down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another, Friends From College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.
The series was co-created for Netflix by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and Francesca Delbanco, who also serve as executive producers. Stoller also directs the series and Delbanco serves as a writer.
