Comedy titles on Netflix have been very hit and miss. One such comedy that has fallen into the miss category is Friends From College. Surprisingly, after a dismal first season Friends From College returned for a second outing. But will the friends be returning for a third season? Here’s your look at Netflix renewal status and release date for Season 3 of Friends from College.
Friends From College is a Netflix Original comedy series created by Francesco Delbanco and Nicholas Stoller. Starring the likes of Keegan-Michael Kay and Cobie Smoulders, you’d have thought the series would be a recipe for success. Sadly, the first season was panned, shredded by critics and subscribers alike. However, this didn’t deter from Netflix renewing the show for a second season. Netflix would have hoped for a better performance from season two, but again the second season failed to impress.
Twenty years after graduation, a tight-knit group of college friends reconnect and discover that love hasn’t gotten easier with age.
Friends From College Netflix Renewal Status
Official Renewal Status: Canceled (Last Updated 02/19/2019)
Sadly another Original has bitten the dust after another cancelation from Netflix. Original comedy Friends From College has bitten the bullet after only two seasons on the streaming giant. This comes during a bout of cancellations when it was announced that Marvel’s The Punisher and Jessica Jones have also been canceled.
Friends From College ran for a total of 2 seasons and 16 episodes. Co-creator Nicholas Stoller broke the news on Twitter.
Friends from College will not be returning for a third season. Thanks to everyone who watched it. Happy Presidents’ Day!

Why was Friends From College canceled?
While Netflix released a statement regarding the cancelation, an official reason is yet to be given. Considering the show has been poorly received by critics and subscribers, viewing figures for the second season may have been dramatically lower than the first.
Naturally, the show did have plenty of fans but clearly not enough for Netflix to warrant a third season. There have been many comedy titles that have been canceled by Netflix.
How has the cast reacted?
Surprisingly none of the core cast has come forward to speak about the series cancellation. Instead here’s how fans have reacted to the recent cancelation.
