Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2: When will it release on Netflix?
We regret to inform you that the second half of Firefly Lane’s second season will not be available on Netflix until February 2023, making the fandom wait for longer than they anticipated.

Since then, the network has confirmed that the second part will premiere the remaining seven episodes on Thursday, June 8, 2023.
It will be the final season, which will have 16 episodes and be split into two halves that will premiere on Netflix at the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET) on the streaming platform. Moreover, Katherine Heigl, who plays Tully Hart, also confirmed the news on her Twitter handle, quoting, “And… when you guys are done binging those new #FireflyLane episodes… you can look forward to 7 more!

Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2: What to expect?
The official description of the season states, What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty-year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever”? We’ll learn the answer this season – but first – Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from – including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud.
In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match – that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.
The main cast members of the series who are expected to return are as follows: Katherine Heigl as Tully Hart and Sarah Chalke as Kate Mularkey. Additionally, the second season will feature new cast members, including India de Beaufort, Greg Germann, Jolene Purdy, and Ignacio Serricchio. They join Ben Lawson, Beau Garrett, Ali Skovbye, Roan Curtis, and Yael Yurman. The series was created by Friedman, who serves as executive producer and showrunner. Heigl and Shawn Williamson also executive produce alongside Michael Spiller and Stephanie Germain.
Spoiler Warning! The paragraph that follows contains some significant information about the upcoming plot.
If you’ve read the book, Tully returns from Antarctica to care for Kate’s friend while she undergoes treatments, and the two are able to repair their friendship. However, Kate succumbs to cancer and asks Tully to care for Johnny and her daughter Marah as she has three children in the book. “I don’t want to let anyone know where it’s going but it’s really moving, and it’s really emotional,” Sarah Chalke told Deadline. She went on to say that “Basically, the arc follows the storyline of the book, and then it also goes off into brand new directions as well. That was the plan to know how many episodes it was going to be done over so that the story could be told in its entirety. There was no waiting on finding out if there’s a pickup or not, and then [the story] is left halfway told, it was the completion of their journey.”
Moreover, Part 1 concludes with Kate and her on-again, off-again husband Johnny Ryan (Ben Lawson) agreeing to give love another chance and get engaged while decorating a Christmas tree. Kate’s joy is short-lived when she learns she has “rare and aggressive” breast cancer. Desperate for her oldest friend, Kate goes to Tully’s apartment, but she’s already left. In the sneak peek, you might expect to see Kate and Johnny’s second wedding. But it’s not Kate getting ready for the big day. Instead, it’s Tully in all white insisting the event can’t start “without her” – and Johnny, standing in the exact same spot where he proposed to Kate, is impatiently downstairs waiting for his bride. So is Kate in another room preparing for these nuptials as the true bride? Or has yet another hurdle wormed its way in between Tully and Kate?
