The Scrubs alumna — who currently recurs on ABC’s Roseanne revival — will appear in a major arc during Season 2 of the streamer’s comedy series, our sister site Deadline reports.
The show follows a group of pals from Harvard who are facing down their 40s. Chalke will play a Park Avenue WASP and divorced mother who briefly dated Nat Faxon’s Nick in college. The exes reconnect at a party in the season opener. (Fun fact: Friends From College also stars Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother, on which Chalke had a recurring role.)
