So what to expect from the Firefly Lane season 2? As we know, the first season ended with two important cliffhangers. The show centers around the lives of two best friends and the role both of them play in each of their lives. The roles are played by the stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke. Their friendship goes through various issues ranging from private and public. Though mostly the show is proof of their solid bond, too is affected at the end of season 1, which needs to be addressed in the next one.
It is based on the titular novel by Kristin Hannah. It’s in the 1970s that the characters Tully Hart (Heigl) and her closest friend, Kate Mularkey (Chalke) meet, in their school life at Reeves Junior High School. They get close during their professional lives in Seattle in the 1980s. The narration jumps back and forth in the time, thus showing the various stages of their lives and the role they played in each of their lives.
As we see, Tully was about the build a relationship with Max Brody, but due to his unsolicited sexual demands, she pushed him away. On the other hand, Kate is in a dilemma about whether to reunite with Johnny or to start something new with Travis, who is her “PTA crush.”
Firefly Lane Season 2 Renewal Status and Cast
Nothing has been announced and confirmed about the renewal of Firefly Lane’s second season by Netflix. Still, we expect the same by winter of 2021: mainly because the novel inspiring the show still has many incidents left to be depicted, and also there’s a sequel to the novel, which is titled Fly Away, which was released in 2014. Hence it can be said that the story has not been exhausted.
The show stars Katherine Heigl as Tully Hart, Sarah Chalke as Kate Mularkey, Tully’s best friend, Ben Lawson as Johnny, Beau Garrett as Cloud, Tully’s drug addict single mother. Yael Yurman as Marah Ryan. Brandon Jay McLaren as Travis,
Jon Ecker as Max Brody, Tully’s love interest in the 2000s. Paul McGillion as Bud, Kate’s father.
Release Date and Story Details Of The Second Season
The new episodes are expected to be shot later this year since we are just assuming that the orders of its renewal will be issued quite quickly. As the first season was quite long, the shoot was done from September 2019 and January 2020, and so we believe the same kind of schedule will be made for the second one.
It might be that Firefly Lane season 2 would get premiered in early February of 2021, but it won’t amaze us if the new episodes get released later around winter or spring. But Season 2 might also be shot nearly in the future and get a premier just after a year of the first one: if the popularity and success of the show are already known to Netflix, and they made plans for the new episodes.
We get hints of the death of an important character in Firefly Lane season 1. In fact, sometimes, it felt as if Tilly’s funeral would be attended by Kate and her daughter Marah.
When the episode almost ends, it, however, seems it’s Johnny who will possibly pass away since he went to Iraq to cover the war and write articles about it, and also showing ominous signs indicating his death. Finally, the last episode revealed it was Bud, Kate’s father, who died. The deep bond of friendship between Kate and Tully also has fallen apart since they totally ignore each other there, and that’s a major point of suspense to be solved in the second season.
We assume that the tussle between Tully and Kate results from some repressed issues in their friendship that were not dealt with before, like their Collab on the professional front and also the inferiority complex which Kate had towards Tully. Thus the latter feeling ignored by the former. Also, there are indications of Johnny being killed in the blast in Iraq, though we aren’t sure. He may return as a peacemaker between the two besties. Recently Heigl denied the possibility of Johnny being the source of the problem between Kate and Tully.
The narrative is expected to be misdirected to make the climax intense, which involves Tully’s mother Cloud or Kate’s daughter Marah. She isn’t pleased to meet Tully at Bud’s funeral in the last episode of the first season. This indicates that the source material will be followed for Season 2, the conflict which comes up when Marah shows up in Tully’s talk show.
