Firefly Lane is coming to an end at Netflix. The second season of the Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke-led drama will be its last.
The good news, though, is the show will conclude with a 16-episode supersized season. Part 1, which contains the first nine episodes, will debut on Dec. 2. Part 2, which has the remaining seven episodes, will launch in 2023.
The show chronicles the lives of Tully Hart (Heigl) and Kate Mularkey (Chalke), two childhood best friends.
In Season 2 Part 1, Kate deals with the agonizing effects of Johnny’s tragic trip to Iraq, and Tully restarts her career from scratch after quitting her talk show due to a lawsuit. This prompts her to begin looking for information about who she is and her origins, including a mission to see her father against the desires of her reclusive hippy mother, Cloud.
In the ‘80s, as Tully’s career takes off and she spars (and flirts!) with arrogant sportscaster Danny Diaz, viewers will witness Kate and Johnny’s first love affair, which causes quite a bit of drama in the newsroom where they both work. If they can manage a five-minute truce, she may have finally found her match.
While in the ’70s, Tully moves in with her grandmother far from Firefly Lane and Cloud is sent to prison for drug dealing. Young Kate and Tully strive to maintain their connection in spite of this. The girls are aware that they need each other while navigating high school life separately.
