Firefly Lane isn’t going to win any accolades, but Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke make it worth seeing just for their performances alone. The actors of Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs swap their hospital life for something considerably more wholesome for Netflix’s latest dose of cosy blanket viewing and pumpkin-spice realness.
You may be wondering when you’ll be able to return to Firefly Lane after devouring ten episodes of compelling drama and dubious wigs. The sitcom has been renewed by Netflix for a second season, although no release date has been announced.
Firefly Lane Season 2 Release Date-
In May of 2021, the show’s producers announced that it has been renewed for a second season. “Is there going to be a season two?” was one of the questions Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke asked each other in a video posted by Netflix.
It’s presently filming the second season of Firefly Lane in Vancouver, and Katherine Heigl posted a picture from the set in November 2021 on
Instagram. While filming the second season, she stated on Instagram that “I’d love to share some behind-the-scenes images, but I can’t… yet,” and that she was “too busy” to do so.
Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast-
At the very least, we may expect to see the following characters back in the second season of Firefly Lane:
• Katherine Heigl as Tully Hart
• Ali Skovbye as Young Tully
• Sarah Chalke as Kate Mularkey
• Roan Curtis as Young Kate
• Ben Lawson as Johnny Ryan
• Beau Garrett as Cloud
• Yael Yurman as Marah, Kate’s teenage daughter
If the finale cliffhanger is any indication, Ben could not be around for a second season. ‘The Johnny moment, I knew for sure was going to arrive,’ creator Maggie Friedman said to Entertainment Weekly.
Firefly Lane Season 2 Plot-
Prior to the series’ renewal, Friedman said, “I think there are a lot more tales to tell, if we’re fortunate enough to have a season two, of those girls going through high school and what that’s like.”
“By the time we say our goodbyes, they’ve already finished eighth grade. They’ll have a lot of fun throughout their teens and early twenties thanks to the wonderful music, clothing, and cultural shifts of the seventies. It’s just fascinating to me. Seeing as Beau [Garrett, who plays Cloud] is so fantastic, it’s only natural that I’d want to see more of those storylines and actors.”
In an interview with Collider, Friedman said she hopes for “many seasons.” There will be a lot more wig action in the future. Heigl and I were “trying these personalities on, searching for them, putting on wigs and laughing our heads off” on our first day of work in the hair and makeup trailer with the stylists, Chalke said in an interview with The Wrap.
In the interim, check out Kristin Hannah’s novel and the sequel, Fly Away, which could serve as inspiration for future seasons of the show.
The book’s synopsis reads, ” “All it takes for these women to go on an emotional and life-changing journey of atonement is one sad choice and an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Each of them has lost her way, and they’ll need each other and a miracle to get back on track.”
