Hit drama series Firefly Lane has been renewed for a second outing on Netflix. The show, which stars Katherine Heigel and Sarah Chalke went straight to number one on Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings when it premiered on February 3rd.
The show is based on the 2008 Kristin Hannah novel of the same name.
A synopsis from Deadline reads: “When unlikely duo Tully (Heigl) and Kate (Chalke) meet at age 14, they couldn’t be more different. Tully is the brash and bold girl you can’t ignore, while Kate is the mousy shy girl you never notice. But when a tragedy brings them together, they are bonded for life – forever inseparable best friends.”
It continues: “Together they experience 30 years of ups and downs, triumphs and disappointments, heartbreak and joy and a love triangle that strains their friendship. One goes on to fabulous wealth and fame, the other chooses marriage and motherhood, but through the decades, their bond remains – until it faces the ultimate test.”
Heigl and Chalke triumphantly announced the hit show’s return in a new Netflix video and answered a series of questions about the first season.
The pair chatted over a tipple to celebrate, confirming that the biggest question fans had asked was about the show’s return. “We don’t have all the answers yet, but trust us it’s going to be worth the wait,” Chalke said. “We promise all of your questions will be answered.”
Season two of Firefly Lane’s release date is yet unknown.
