Firefly Lane fans, get ready! Firefly Lane season 2 finally has a release date, set to grace our screens on Friday, December 2. The Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke-led series’ sophomore season has been a long time coming as the first season dropped on Netflix in February 2021.

The drama series will welcome new cast members Ignacio Serricchio as Danny, Jolene Purdy as Justine, India de Beaufort as Charlotte, and Greg Germann as Benedict.
We’re so excited about the return of the popular Netflix show! So what can we expect to see when the new episodes debut?
What is Firefly Lane season 2 about?
Season 2 will see the Firefly Lane girls work through their personal troubles, show us more backstory from the ’70s and ’80s, and answer the biggest question of all – why aren’t the best buds friends anymore? Check out the official synopsis 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.
While the first season had the Netflix-typical episode count of 10 episodes, season 2 will be a total of 16 episodes! The sophomore season will be split into two parts, with the first nine premiering on December 2 and the rest coming to Netflix sometime in 2023.
With all this great news about the next part of the story coming so soon, unfortunately, we’re sad to report that season 2 will be the final season. But let’s not dwell on the show coming to an end. We’re getting a super-sized season, and we won’t have to say goodbye until sometime in 2023!
Firefly Lane season 2 part 1 premieres Friday, December 2, on Netflix.
