Firefly Lane may have only just landed on Netflix, but that’s not enough to stop it from being an instant fan-favorite. With that, let’s look at the prospects of Firefly Lane season 2, what to expect from the second season and when it could arrive on Netflix.
Based on the popular novel by US author, Kristin Hannah, Firefly Lane tells the moving story of two best friends, and the obstacles they face in their lives and their friendship.
The show dropped on Wednesday 3 February, to mixed critical reviews. The fans, however, love it and are already asking for a second season. Here’s everything we know about the future of Firefly Lane on Netflix…
Has Firefly Lane been renewed?
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Not yet renewed (last updated: 02/05/2021)
So far, Netflix hasn’t made any kind of announcement about the future of Firefly Lane. However, that’s not surprising, considering it only arrived on Netflix earlier this week.
As some fans have worked out, a second season of Firefly Lane does look almost certain.
The first season doesn’t cover all of the material from the novel, so there is still much of Tully and Kate’s story left to tell. There’s also a sequel to the novel, Fly Away, which extends the story even further.
What could happen in season 2 of Firefly Lane?
Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t finished season 1, don’t read any further!
At the end of season 1, we’re left with two very contrasting images of Tully and Kate’s relationship. After Tully quits her show, the pair enjoy a cozy catch-up by the firepit, where Tully promises Kate that she’ll help her get a job when she’s hired again. We then have a flashforward to a future scene, where the pair have an emotional confrontation at a funeral, with Kate stating that she never wants to see Tully again.
Undoubtedly, season 2 will explain what happens to fracture Tully and Kate’s relationship so irreparably. However, given that this is a show about friendship, we can’t believe that these two won’t make up in the end.
Although the confrontational finale takes place at a funeral, it is not obvious who’s funeral it is. Since Tully arrives to pay her respect, it’s clearly the funeral of someone closest to Kate. We have two likely candidates: Kate’s ex-husband, Johnny, who left for Iraq, or Kate’s elderly father. Either way, a potential second season would cover the impact this has on Kate, as well as her teenage daughter, Marah.
We think season 2 would also explore what happens next with Tully’s career, including if she ever offers Kate that job.
Of course, since Firefly Lane is based on a fairly famous novel, you don’t have to search too hard to find out what actually happens next to Tully and Kate. Be careful out there: you might not like what you see…
When will season 2 of Firefly Lane release on Netflix?
Assuming a swift renewal and production begins in 2021, we could see the show return in 2022 which would be similar to how other shows in the genre release on Netflix but for now, that’s just speculation assuming the show does get renewed.
What did fans think of season 1 of Firefly Lane?
As we mentioned earlier, fans absolutely loved the first season of Firefly Lane. Here’s what they’ve been saying…
