Has Firefly Lane Been Confirmed For A Season Two?
If season one's cliffhanger had you itching to know the fate of Tully and Kate's friendship, then know that you're not alone. And thankfully, a second season is officially on the way.
On May 26, Firefly Lane stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke announced that their hit Netflix series had been renewed for a second season. The pair shared the news while answering questions from fans with Netflix.
“How long do I have to wait for season 2 of Firefly Lane?” a fan's question read, Heigl then turned to Sarah and announced the news.
“I don’t know if you’re getting this as much as I am, but anywhere I go, ‘Is there gonna be a season 2?’…You know, I’m just like, ‘Guys… yes!’” Heigl announced.
“There’s gonna be a season 2!” added Chalke. “We don’t have all the answers yet, but trust us, it is going to be worth the wait. And we promise all of your questions will be answered.”
And while some may question what the second season would even cover, the actual story of the two BFFs is far from over. Based on Kristen Hannah's book of the same name, the first season only covers the first half of the book, meaning that there's plenty more drama to in store.
"There's plenty to go, just from the first novel," Ben Lawson, who plays Kate's husband Johnny Ryan, told Oprah Magazine. "There's also a sequel. Hopefully audiences delve in and we can continue."
If that wasn't enough proof of another season, series producer Maggie Friedman has a master plan for the next season—and is remaining tight-lipped on the details—and has hope that Netflix will give them the green light for a second season.
"I'm hoping that we get multiple seasons, and you want to make sure that you're doling it out in the right way for that," she said.

What Is Going To Happen In Firefly Lane's Second Season?
Racking up at almost 500 pages, Kristin Hannah's 2008 novel follows Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey's journey through friendship, love and life and may, in fact, hold the secrets to a plot for a second season—especially since the first season only covers half of the book's storyline.
In the last minutes of Firefly Lane's finale, the iconic duo break hearts when they part ways after Kate turns Tully away from her father's funeral, saying: "When I said I could never forgive you for what you did, what do you think that meant?"
Speaking to Oprah Magazine, Katherine Heigl couldn't confirm the source of the friends' tension, however, she did rule out one option—Johnny, Kate's husband doesn't come between them.
"It can't be that Tully sleeps with Johnny. I don't think that any friendship can come back from that. I'll fight to the death that it not be that," she said.
It's also important to note that the book may hold a clue. In the novel, Kate and Tully's relationship ends after Tully invites Kate and her daughter, Marah, on her talk show to speak about their relationship, which sees Tully insinuate that Kate is a bad mother.
"Tully was trying to help but in a really thoughtless way that was all about Tully. She doesn't realise that she's publicly humiliating her friend on live television, and at the same time, taking the 14-year-old's side. That would be enough to put a serious rift in the friendship," Heigl revealed.
Even if it sticks to the novel's major plot lines, season two of Firefly Lane is sure to have its surprises. Besides, the Netflix series has already forged its own path, adding plot lines like Tully's relationship with Max and giving Kate's brother, Sean, a heightened role.
Which Cast Members Will Be Returning For Firefly Lane Season Two?
It's clear that there would be no Firefly Lane without best friends Kate and Tully, meaning that fans can expect to see Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke reprise their roles as the iconic duo.
Along side the pair, Roan Curtis and Ali Skovbye should also be set to return to as their best friends in childhood and adulthood, if the show does return.
The series also features Ben Lawson as Kate's husband Johnny, Yael Yurman as their daughter, and Beau Garrett as Tully's mother, Cloud.
And while the finale has convinced its audience that his relationship with Tully is over, there's a strong chance that Max (Jon-Michael Ecker) could return for the second season.
But while we wait, you can find us—and our best friends—re-obsessing over season one.
