Firefly Lane fans, we have great news to share about the upcoming second season. Netflix has just announced the official release date, but there’s a catch. The second season will be split into two parts, which will be released at different times. So how many episodes will be in Firefly Lane season 2 part 1? That’s no problem for us! We shared the episode count for the first part down below.
Firefly Lane is one of the best romantic drama series streaming on Netflix, and there’s no arguing that. It was created by Maggie Friedman, best known for being the showrunner and executive producer of the short-lived fantasy series Witches of East End. Like many other Netflix shows, Firefly Lane is based on a book. It’s a television adaptation of the book of the same name by Kristin Hannah.
The story follows the long-term friendship between best friends, Tully and Kate, as they go through the ups and downs of life. Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke star in the leading roles of Tully and Kate, respectively. More of the cast includes Ben Lawson, Beau Garrett, Ali Skovbye, Roan Curtis, Yael Yurman, and Ignacio Serricchio.
Unfortunately, Firefly Lane season 2 will be the final season. However, we’re still excited to see how the story will wrap up for Tully and Kate.
Firefly Lane season 2 to be supersized: How many episodes total?
Firefly Lane season 2 will consist of 16 episodes total, which is six more episodes than the first season. It’s unclear why there are many more episodes in the second season than in the first season, but our guess is that more episodes were needed to wrap up the story.
How many episodes will be in Firefly Lane season 2 part 1?
As we mentioned earlier, the second and final season will be split into two batches. Firefly Lane season 2 part 1 will consist of nine episodes (201-209) and is set to premiere on Friday, Dec. 2.
Here’s the official synopsis for Firefly Lane season 2 part 1 via the Netflix press release below:
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.
There will be four new cast members joining this season, including India de Beaufort (Charlotte), Greg Germann (Benedict), Jolene Purdy (Justine), and Ignacio Serricchio (Danny). You can also expect to see the return of Ben Lawson, Beau Garrett, Ali Skovbye, Roan Curtis, and Yael Yurman.
Firefly Lane season 2 part 2 will debut sometime in 2023 and consists of the remaining seven episodes (210-216). Fingers crossed, we get an early 2023 or spring 2023 release.
