'Firefly Lane' Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

'Firefly Lane' Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

The series has just landed on Netflix, but the cast are already sharing their predictions for season 2.

'Firefly Lane' has just landed on Netflix, but its multiple cliffhangers already had us asking if the show is coming back for season 2.

The series is based on the novel of the same name by Kristin Hannah and follows the tale of 30 years of friendship between Kate and Tully.

The series plays with the timelines jumping from their childhood in the '70s to adulthood working in a TV journalism company.

The 10-episode first season only covered half of the events of the books, and actor Ben Lawson says, "There's plenty to go, just from the first novel."

So is season 2 happening? Here's what we know so far.

Will There Be 'Firefly Lane' Season 2? 

'Firefly Lane' season 1 has just landed on Netflix on February 3, 2021, and there are still no renewal announcements while we are writing this article.

Netflix often takes at least a month before renewing a series, unless follow-up seasons were pre-ordered.

If we are lucky, we might get a renewal announcement by March. 

When Will  'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Release?

The show isn't renewed for season 2 yet. However, if everything runs smooth (meaning the show will get renewed soon then proceed to production immediately), a second season can release next year.

Let's just hope that this is what's going to happen for  'Firefly Lane' Season 2.

What Is The Plot Of 'Firefly Lane' Season 2? 

We are still waiting for Netflix to renew the series, but the cast already shared their predictions if the show gets the go signal for season 2.

The first season ended with several cliffhangers, which gave us some clues (and questions) about what to expect in the next season.

In the final moments of season 1, Kate shoves Tully away from her father's funeral. "When I said I could never forgive you for what you did, what do you think that meant?" Kate said.

We don't know what happened between the two and what made Kate so mad. Unlike the book that follows a linear timeline, the series plays with time jumps, shifting between Tully and Kate's childhood in the '70s, their college years, their time at the news station, and the present-day.

Star Katherine Heigl is also clueless about what happened between her character and Kate, but she says the tension shouldn't have anything to do with Kate's husband, Johnny.

"It can't be that Tully sleeps with Johnny. I don't think that any friendship can come back from that. I'll fight to the death that it is not that," she says via Oprah mag.

In the novel, Kate and Tully's friendship fell apart after Tully invites Kate and her daughter, Marah, on her talk show to talk about their relationship. Tully unwittingly insinuates that Kate is not a good mom.

"Tully was trying to help, but in a really thoughtless way, that was all about Tully. She doesn't realize that she's publicly humiliating her friend on live television, and at the same time, taking the 14-year-old's side. That would be enough to put a serious rift in the friendship," Heigl says.

Tully has a lot of things going on her plate. We don't know yet what happens to her after her mother was arrested by the police and how will she handle the break-up with max and her unfortunate miscarriage?

'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Cast: Who Are Returning?

Based on where season 1 concluded, we are expecting to see our main casts returning to pick things up from where the last season ended.

That means Katherine Heigl is coming back as Tully Hart together with Sarah Chalke as Kate Mularkey.

Ali Skovbye, who plays Young teenage Tully, and Roan Curtis, who portrays Young teenage Kate, are also coming back.

Ben Lawson should also return as Kate's husband Johnny, together with Yael Yurman as their daughter, and Beau Garrett as Tully's mom, Cloud.

There is also a chance for Tully's love interest Max (Jon-Michael Ecker) to return in season 2, despite having their relationship seemingly ended in the first season.

'Firefly Lane' Book Spoiler Alerts

We are not sure yet how faithful Netflix's adaptation for the source material will be. However, if they will follow the events of the first book accurately, then we are up for a sad ending.

The ending of Hannah's novel sees Kate diagnosed with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer. Kate and Tully still haven't reconciled their differences, but upon hearing the news, she flies home immediately to be with Kate.

Kate dies at the end of the novel. If Netflix follows the book's ending, then we should be prepared with a box of tissue.
