The final half of this ‘supersized season’ of ‘Firefly Lane’ will kick off on April 27
Firefly Lane first hit Netflix in February 2021, taking viewers on an emotional rollercoaster during its ten-episode run. And in just that short time, the show, which follows friends Tully and Kate (Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke, respectively) through different chapters of their life and friendship, has garnered millions of fans.
Fans learned late last year that the second season of Firefly Lane will be the series’ last, and we’ve been anxiously awaiting the final episodes ever since. Sensing our impatience, Netflix just released the Season 2, Part 2 trailer—and if you can get through it without crying you just might be dead inside:
The trailer opens with Tully wistfully stating that she hasn’t been the same since she “lost her best friend.” To clarify, she explains that Kate is still alive and “probably great” but that they’ve stopped speaking. However, we soon learn that Kate has been struggling to stay strong after a breast cancer diagnosis and that she might not be doing as well as Tully assumes.
The trailer takes you back in time, and we see the pair in happier times celebrating Tully’s TV show and Kate’s engagement. But it’s not all peaches and cream in the present, where the former friends’ mothers have to step in to bring them back together in Kate’s time of need. “What took you so long?” is what Kate asks Tully when they finally reunite. Cue the tears.
Part 2 will launch on April 27, 2023. The streamer also released some first-look photos of the upcoming season. If you need a refresher on what happened in the first half of season 2, you can check out the Part 1 trailer here:
Based on author Kristin Hannah’s book, Firefly Lane follows the pair from the time they meet as teens in the ’70s to the present day, and touches on some pretty important topics, like love, divorce, sexual assault, miscarriage, and careers.
Tully is the sassy, headstrong character that comes from a broken home, and Kate, the total opposite: a sweet, shy woman who often finds herself in Tully’s shadow. Tully ends up a famous talk show host while Kate enters back into the workforce after having a child.
You have a month to get yourself caught up before the final episodes kick off on April 27.
