Firefly Lane Season 2 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Firefly Lane Season 2 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Firefly Lane was a huge hit for Netflix when it was released in February 2021 with over 49 million people watching it.

The friendship drama went straight into the top ten around the world and no sooner had it ended and fans were clambering for more.

Based on the novel of the same name by Kristin Hannah, it was our first introduction to Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey.

If you haven't already watched the first season, here's a quick summary of what happened…

Best friends since they were 14-years-old, the two girls meet in the 1970s when Tully and her mother move to the street that Kate and her family live on – Firefly Lane.

Over ten episodes we watch as the show chronicles their relationship, one that stands the test of time through high school, college, work, and well into adulthood.

Tully pursues a career as a television reporter and Kate decided to give up work to be a stay-at-home mother.

Fast forward through time again and we are now at 2004. Kate (Sarah Chalke) is on the brink of divorce, her daughter is a teenager and she is looking for a new job.

Tully (Katherine Heigl) is a hugely successful daytime talk show host but has plenty of issues of her own to contend with.

She is also facing a monumental scandal as a tabloid has published details about her mother. That wouldn't be so terrible if she hadn't already told the world that her mother was dead. Spoiler, she's not.

So through time jumps we watch their lives unfold and all the while another story, in the present day, is developing. One where the two women are no longer friends.

What caused the split in the friendship? Is Johnny still alive? We do not know and that's why season 2 is so eagerly anticipated. We just need answers!


The good news is that there will definitely be a second season of Firefly Lane.

Netflix renewed the show for a second season in May 2021 and it is slated to be released in 2022.

Production started about six months ago and at the time of writing, it is still being filmed in Canada.

In November 2021 Katherine Heigl confirmed via Insta that they were back filming.

Even if filming wrapped today, it would still take at least another six months in post-production as translating it into so many languages takes a lot of time!

So we estimate that the Firefly Lane season 2 release date will be around September 2022.


There are quite a few players in Firefly Laneand the great news is that all of the cast is back for season 2.

The cast size is largely due to the fact that we follow Tully and Kate through three timelines so although the main actresses play younger versions of themselves, there are also 1970 and teenage versions.

Because Firefly Lane is based on a novel, season 1 only covered a part of the story. And that doesn't even include the follow-up book!

We were left with a lot of questions at the end of season 1 but the one that has bothered most fans is why the two women are no longer friends?

In a zoom interview lead actress, Sarah Chalke gave viewers a little hint.

“So, this issue between Tully and Kate, we can’t say much, but we can say that it’s family-related and it has nothing to do with Johnny.”

In the book, Kate and Tully fall out after Tully pulls a stunt that publicly humiliates Kate. It happens on Tully's show when her best friend paints her as a bad parent live on national TV.

However, the tv series Firefly Lane doesn't follow the story exactly so they may go in a slightly different direction with this particular plotline.

And, fingers crossed they also change the ending. Because in the novel…get the kleenex out…Kate is diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, and Tully rushes back to make amends with her.

They reconcile, and Kate asks Tully to please take care of Marah and Johnny, as they never get divorced in the book. Then, Kate passes away.

Again, no confirmation that this is the direction the Netflix show will go in but then again it is a way to end the show although it won't be in Season 2 as there is still too much of the story to tell.
