Three months after the cancellation of The Grinder, Fred Savage is set to return to series comedy — and he’ll be joined by Keegan-Michael Key and Cobie Smulders.

Netflix announced on Monday that it has ordered Friends from College, a comedy from Nick Stoller (Neighbors, The Carmichael Show) and wife/actress Francesca Delbanco. The pair will act as executive producers and writers on the series, all eight episodes of which will be directed by Stoller.


Stoller, who recently directed Neighbors 2, worked with Savage on The Grinder as an executive producer.

Friends From College is slated to commence production sometime this fall.
