The first season focuses on a group of friends from Harvard that are facing life in their forties, looking at old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.
The synopsis for the second season is as follows:
It’s been a year since Ethan & Sam’s affair was exposed to the 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. Will they be able to move forward or will they regress back to their old destructive patterns once again?
The series is co-created by Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, who also serve as executive producers.
Friends From College stars Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, Fred Savage, Jae Suh Park, Billy Eichner and Sarah Chalke.
