Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2017

Last month, Cobie attended the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2017 and participated in a panel along fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe star, Elizabeth Henstridge (“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”).

When the topic of Avengers: Infinity War was brought up, Cobie gave the same answer Paul Bettany did during his panel. She jokingly said, “if she spoiled anything she would be shot.” Instead, she was asked if her kids have seen her kickass characters in films. Smulders said she isn’t cool in her daughters eyes yet, but “It is a new sort of territory that I’m navigating… I am excited to be doing Mariah Hill. It’s really cool to play these women, these badass women, and raising these two girls so that when they are old enough to watch it, they will hopefully be excited and hopefully be inspired in some way.”

“Friends From College” Renewed For Season Two

Netflix has renewed comedy series Friends from College for Season 2, Variety has confirmed.

The series follows a group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, Fred Savage, and Jae Suh Park. The series is described as “a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.” The series was co-created by Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, who also serve as executive producers. Stoller also directs the series and Delbanco serves as a writer. Season 2 will consist of eight episodes just as Season 1 did.

The renewal comes despite the fact the show was not well received by critics, with Season 1 currently holding a 24% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is the latest renewal for a Netflix original series in the past few weeks. Last week, the streaming giant gave a second season order to crime drama Ozark. Prior to that, Netflix also renewed freshman comedy GLOW, which is a fictional account of a real all-female wrestling TV show from the 1980’s. That renewal came on the heels of the cancellation of the drama series Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts, after one season. (Source)

Top Television Comedic Casts and Ensembles

A great ensemble creates a mysterious bond between a show and its viewers. The chemistry shared on screen brings with it a certain level of comfort.

But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.

Indie Wire has compiled a list of the top television comedic ensembles over the last 25 years. Where does How I Met Your Mother rank among the greats? Take a look below:

23. | “How I Met Your Mother”
When you have nine seasons to explore five characters, you not only get a chance to delve into every possible relationship, but uncover the hidden skills of its cast. “How I Met Your Mother” unveiled Josh Radnor’s inner goofiness, Alyson Hannigan’s punchline chops, Jason Segel’s musical talents, Cobie Smulders’ bad-assery, and Neil Patrick Harris’s capacity for emotional depth. However you feel about the show’s ultimate conclusion, the best moments of “How I Met Your Mother” were always rooted in the ensemble’s “found family” feel, one built upon a well-developed history for its characters and chemistry that never failed to spark.

“Friends From College” People Interview

With their new comedy series Friends from College set to launch on Netflix Friday, Keegan-Michael Key and Cobie Smulders spoke with PEOPLE about playing a couple who are having trouble putting their college days behind them.

Tell us about your new comedy. What can we expect?
SMULDERS: It’s about a group of friends who went to college together and decades later reunite and are still kind of figuring their lives out. It’s about friendship, but it’s like family. They bring out the best and the worst in each other.

Who had the hardest time keeping a straight face while filming?
SMULDERS: Most likely me. I am a breaker. It’s one of my faults.
KEY: Cobie very well may have been the most guilty, but she was also the most supportive. She’s Canadian. They can’t help but be nice.

What was it like filming in New York City?
SMULDERS: It was freezing on some nights! But we were able to use it to our advantage.
KEY: See! She’s so positive! It was way worse for the girls. The guys all had jackets, and the girls were bare-shouldered. But I think the frigid nights helped with some of the scenes where our characters didn’t want to be where they were. We didn’t want to be there either! It was like, “It’s fall! Why is it 36 degrees?!”

Friends From College also stars Fred Savage, Annie Parisse, Jae Suh Park and Nat Faxon and launches July 14 on Netflix. (Source)
