TV show description:      
This romantic comedy revolves around six friends who are at different stages in their lives. They’re married, divorced, newly engaged, and single. The friends are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better.

Andi (Majandra Delfino) and Bobby Lutz (Kevin Connolly) are happily married with a toddler and another baby on the way, but at times long for the days when they had less responsibility and more fun.

Jules Talley (Brooklyn Decker) and Lowell Peddit (Rick Donald) are high on their passionate new relationship and are engaged. Kate McLean (Zoe Lister-Jones) has a successful career but may have a breakdown when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged.

Meanwhile, Will Stokes (James Van Der Beek) is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle — but is still pining for his ex-wife.

Series Finale:     
Episode #13 — The Imposters
Bobby’s gift idea for Andi doesn’t resonate with the friends, so Kate intervenes. Unaware that Val rented out their old house, Will makes an unannounced visit, only to get trapped inside.
First aired: (Not aired during original series run.)

    I can’t believe this show was canceled! Shocking. My husband and I both thought it was great and enjoyed watching it. Such a disappointment!

    I think CBS seriously screwed up canceling this show. No it wasn’t suitable for children to watch, but it was the best comedy show they had on air for the adults to enjoy! Two and a half men and mom should’ve been cancelled long before FWBL! Shame on you CBS, you don’t know what funny is apparently. Hopefully another network picks it up and it gets aired again, I miss that show! :(

    What a dumb move cancelling this show! It was the funniest sitcom in ages! Perhaps a little adult, but they could have always changed it’s time slot. I am a hardcore CBS fan, but man what a letdown!

    I loved this show! I was saddened to hear it was cancelled. I hope that it gets renewed it was a funny comedy. I wish I could have seen the five remaining episodes.

    I loved this show! I can’t believe CBS would cancel it. It was one of the funniest shows we’ve watched in a long time. Who wants to watch reruns of Mom. come on CBS, put it back on. Seriously disappointed.
