It’s been a while since we had an update on Firefly Lane season 2 to share with fans of the hit Netflix show, but now we’re inching closer to the suspected release window and all eyes are on the series.
Firefly Lane was one of the best and most popular Netflix shows of 2021. The series is based on the book of the same name by Kristin Hannah. It stars Sarah Chalke and Katherine Heigl. The first season of the series premiered on Netflix on Feb. 3, 2021. It topped the daily Netflix Top 10 for several weeks until Ginny and Georgia came along and knocked it out of the No. 1 spot.
Let’s get into everything we know about Firefly Lane season 2, which we now know will be the last season.
Firefly Lane season 2 release date
In early October Netflix announced that Firefly Lane season 2 will premiere on December 2. It will be split into two parts and 16-episodes total. The first nine episodes will debut in December and the remaining episodes will drop sometime in 2023.
Firefly Lane season 2 plot synopsis
Here is the official synopsis for the new season, courtesy of Netflix:
What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever”? We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud.
In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.
