The series follows six Harvard alums in their 40s living in New York City and the complicated relationships they have with each other.
In season two, it’s been a year since Ethan and Sam’s affair was exposed to their four other friends – including Lisa, Ethan’s wife – and the friend group is still fractured. No one has heard from Lisa, Ethan has been living a repentant year of writing a YA novel, and Sam has been trying to repair her marriage with her husband, Jon.
But with Max’s wedding coming up, the friends won’t be able to avoid each other much longer. Between the engagement party, bachelor party and wedding, the six will have to overcome the destruction in their past and figure out how to function as a friend group again.
The series stars Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne). Billy Eichner (Felix) and Sarah Chalke (Merrill) guest star.
Friends From College premiered October 26 with a special screening of the season two premiere episode at the Austin Film Festival, followed by a question-and-answer session with creators Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco.
The eight-episode second season launches January 11 on Netflix.
