Everything We Know About ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2

1. What is Firefly Lane about? 

If you haven’t watched the series or read the best-selling book by Kristin Hannah, first of all, shame on you. (Just kidding…sorta.) Second, the story spans the course of decades, following two lifelong best friends: Tallulah “Tully” Hart (Katherine Heigl) and Kate Mularky (Sarah Chalke). Brandon Jay McLaren plays a widowed father named Travis, whose daughter just so happens to attend the same school as Marah (Yael Yurman), Kate’s daughter. Think of Firefly Lane as a cross between Gilmore GirlsSweet Magnolias and Virgin River (AKA three of our favorite things).

2. Is Firefly Lane returning for season 2?

That’s correct. In 2021, stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke broke the exciting renewal news in a video posted on Netflix’s official account, confirming that fans can expect to see brand-new episodes in the near future. After answering a few fan questions from social media, Heigl revealed, "Everyone keeps asking, everywhere I go, 'Is there gonna be a season two?' And I'm just like, 'Guys...yes.'" Later that year, the cast was seen shooting the second installment in Canada.

4. Who stars in Firefly Lane

In addition to Heigl and Chalke, the series also stars Beau Garrett (Glee), Ben Lawson (The Good Place), Brandon Jay Mclaren (The Killing) and Yael Yurman (The Man in the High Castle). Last year, the drama revealed that it had added four new cast members to season two, including India de Beaufort (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), Greg Germann (Grey’s Anatomy), Jolene Purdy (The White Lotus) and Ignacio Serricchio (Lost in Space)

5. Is there a trailer?

The official trailer offers a glimpse of Firefly Lane season 2, beginning with the aftermath of Johnny’s explosion in Iraq. The problem? Kate doesn’t know how to label their relationship.

“I’m his wife, ex-wife. We’re divorced…We’re…still very close. It’s complicated,” she says in the clip.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chalke and Heigl teased what’s to come in the final season of Firefly Lane

“I don’t think it’s going to be what you thought it was going to be,” Chalke said. “But it’s juicy and you’re going to laugh and you’re going to cry and you’re going to do all of the things.”

Heigl chimed in and said, “There’s some great character drama for all of us that we go through this season and with the audience. Like Sarah said, there’s just so much. I don’t want to give anything away but it’s so good.”
