Netflix cancels Friends From College after two seasons
After two seasons of middling reviews from critics but solid reviews from audiences, Netflix has decided to not move forward with a third season of the ensemble dramedy series Friends From College, according to Variety.
Series co-creator Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors) took to Twitter on Monday to announce the streaming service’s decision:
“We’re grateful to creators Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco for creating a wise, funny and supremely relatable show,” Neflix said in a statement. “We also want to thank the hard-working crew, and we raise a glass to the amazingly talented cast including Keegan-Michael Key, Fred Savage, Cobie Smulders, Nat Faxon, Annie Parisse, Jae Suh Park and Billy Eichner.”
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 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.
All episodes of the series are available for streaming at Netflix.
