‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 | Netflix Release Date, Cast, and Plot

In most soapy, emotional, roller-coaster-y TV shows—think Virgin RiverThis Is Us, etc.—the tumultuous relationship at the core of the series is a romantic one. We spend episode after episode watching two people fall in love, be driven apart, and find their way back to each other against all odds—with that cycle often repeating multiple times throughout each season. It’s incredibly refreshing, then, to see Netflix’s heartwarming drama, Firefly Lane, put a gentle twist on this genre by focusing instead on the just as tumultuous relationship between two best friends across more than 30 years.

The series stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke as the adult versions of Tully and Kate, respectively, who have been inseparable since they became neighbors on the titular Firefly Lane in eighth grade. The first season’s 10 episodes span the ensuing decades, jumping around from the early days of their friendship in the 1970s, to their college years during the 1980s, to their midlife crises in the early 2000s. It’s an ode to the power and resiliency of female friendship, yes, but it’s also just incredibly addictive TV—good luck not speeding through all 10 hours in one sitting!
