The ensemble comedy, created by Francesca Delbanco and Nicholas Stoller, was not renewed for a third season after its second season debuted last month. The show focused on the intersecting lives of a group of friends (including Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, and Fred Savage) living in New York City and trying to work through love and marriage, though the characters seemed to turn a lot of viewers off. In our season 2 review, the Daily Dot’s Chris Osterndorf called Friends From College “the most annoying show that I can’t stop watching.”
Friends from College will not be returning for a third season. Thanks to everyone who watched it. Happy Presidents’ Day!

Even though its first season was also given bad reviews, Netflix still renewed it. Delbanco and Stoller were apparently surprised by the response to this unlikable friend group, made all the richer by the admission that they modeled the group after their own friends from Harvard.
The Twitter response to the cancelation has been mixed, proving the show did have its supporters. In a statement, Netflix said it’s “grateful to creators Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco for creating a wise, funny, and supremely relatable show.”
On Monday, Netflix also announced the cancelation of Marvel series Jessica Jones and The Punisher.
