Netflix Renews ‘Friends From College’ For Season 2 | TV News
Amidst the chaos and fury (mainly of Sense8 stans), Friends From College has survived Netflix’s purge, and has been gifted with a second season. The show hasn’t been very talked about or revolutionary from what I’ve seen, but clearly something’s gone right for it to avoid the same fate as Girlboss and Gypsy, may they rest in peace.
The show, which follows a group of close-knit, grown-up Harvard graduates and their messy lives in New York City, will return for another eight episode run. The show’s cast includes Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, Fred Savage, Jae Suh Park, and recurring guests Billy Eichner and Greg Germann.
Shockingly, Netflix did not announce the news on their Twitter with a mysterious clip revealing nothing about the upcoming season. If it’s not worthy of an ambiguous 30 seconds, is it worth a second season? Who knows, but the renewal is certainly one of the most confusing, thanks to the countless number of reviews criticising the show for being one-dimensional and just another display of relationship shortcomings.
The news comes off the heels of the second season order for crime-drama Ozark, and ’80s ladies wrestling dramedy GLOW. I’m not sure if Friends From College is quit at the level of the former to renewals, so perhaps this will be its last. After all, how long can a series about Friends really last for?
