When Nick is talking to his family about Rachel, he mentions that she teaches millennials. While Nick and Rachel's ages are never explicitly mentioned, we can guess by the 1995 flashback that Nick at least is of the age range generally accepted to be a millennial (early 1980s to mid-1990s). Nick and Rachel seem to be near the same age, making both of them millennials. Unless Rachel is only teaching graduate students, her students would be firmly placed in the Generation Z age range.
There's a mid-credit scene in which Astrid exchanges glances with a man.
