“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)

Carter Bays Talks the Potential Final Season

There are minor spoilers from tonight’s season premiere of How I Met Your Mother. Read on at your own risk!

And with one glimpse of a yellow umbrella (and some nice legs sporting fancy heels), How I Met Your Mother fans got another crucial piece of the puzzle to the biggest TV mystery of all time! OK, maybe not of all time, but it’s certainly a plotline fans have been unraveling for the better part of a decade.

In tonight’s season-eight premiere of HIMYM’s, we got to see Ted (Josh Radnor) moments before he first lays eyes on his future wife while sitting at a train station in the rain after Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin’s (Cobie Smulders) wedding. How did he get there? And where does “How I Met Your Mother” go after tonight? We chatted with creator and executive producer Carter Bays, who previewed season eight for us, and even let us in on some plans should there be a season nine:

What was your plan of attack this season coming off the big reveal that Robin is Barney’s bride?
Carter Bays: Last season we wrapped up one of the bigger mysteries of the show, which is: Who’s getting married? Now that we know who the players are and what the situation is on this wedding day, from here to the end—whether it’s one or two years and we’re still figuring that out, is the journey from where we are right now to that wedding day. The meaning of that wedding day…there’s more to it than what we know right now, as we will learn over the course of this season. This is now getting the ball a little further down the field as far as the bigger question of the show. We’ve answered the question of who is getting married, and now it’s time for the bigger question of the show, which is how Ted meets the mother and what the circumstances are in that wedding that specifically puts Ted in her path.

Since you’re still not sure if this is the last season or not, do you have a Plan B if you guys do a ninth season?
I wouldn’t say a “Plan B” because I don’t want to promise anything that we ultimately don’t deliver on. Our attack is this: this is the final season of How I Met Your Mother as far as what we’re writing. We’re open to that being extended. If we get the opportunity to do it, we definitely have another season in us. We have a lot of stories that we’re not able to get to now that we would love to do if there is a ninth season. Either way, we’re happy. We’ve achieved everything we wanted to achieve, but we’re not deaf to the voices of like, ‘You guys gotta wrap it up! It’s done!’ And it’s like, I get it, but I also feel like our ratings are better than they’ve ever been, we’re having fun doing it, the cast is having fun doing it and we don’t feel like our show is completely about this one question that is posed in the title. Some people look at our show that way, and that’s fine. Fans of the show just like having these five characters in their living room every Monday night, and that’s the kind of TV viewing we grew up with and we aspire to. We love having this overall story and that’s a huge part of it, but I don’t think we’d feel like we’re cheating everybody by doing another year of a show that a lot of people love. I think we have two more great seasons in us. If we only do one of those seasons, then I don’t think we’ll feel cheated about it or that we’ll feel like we missed out an opportunity to do an extra 24 episodes, but if there is a ninth season, I think it would be a great one.
