Friends from College is only into its second season now, but the series is synonymous with New York City.
In season one, married couple Ethan (played by Keegan Michael-Key) and Lisa (Cobie Smulders) move from Michigan to New York.
Much of the action takes place throughout various locations in Manhattan.
Most of the characters are quite wealthy so their homes and other aspects of their lives are set in lavish surroundings.
Central Park and the surrounding areas of Upper Manhattan feature prominently.
There are also endless shots of the city’s skyline featuring the Empire State Building and the Chrysler.
Where is Friends from College season 2 filmed?
Friends from College season two was shot on location in New York.
Netflix has not revealed many details about where exactly scenes were shot, but viewers may recognise several iconic NYC locations throughout each episode.
Series creators Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco said they were “heartbroken” about season one’s poor reviews from critics.
Speaking about season two, Delbanco told Indie Wire: “Everyone’s cards are on the table at the beginning of this season.
“Everyone knows everything that was going on. There are no longer any secrets that the characters are carrying around. Or lies they’re trying to not be caught up in.”
What will happen in Friends from College season 2?
“In season two, it’s been a year since Ethan and Sam’s (Annie Parisse) 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 (Fred Savage) 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?”
