Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2: Release Date, Trailer, Cast, and Everything to Know

Tully and Kate's sendoff is coming soon

Tmera Hepburn

Netflix's gal pal drama series Firefly Lane has become the show to watch when you need some friendship drama, and now that Season 2 Part 1 has come and gone, we're on the edge of our seats waiting for the next and final installment. The series is based on the novel by Kristin Hannah, while taking liberties as an adaptation for Netflix to make it fit better on the small screen. The TV show features flashbacks that span decades, which people have compared to the style of This is Us, helping viewers really get the full picture of the highs and lows of the friendship between the two main characters, Tully Hart (Katherine Heigl) and Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke).

[Warning: The following contains spoilers for Season 2 of Firefly Lane. Read at your own risk!]

Season 2 focused on Kate and Tully's ongoing present-day feud that we got a whiff of toward the end of Season 1 and let us in on the reasons behind it, all while filling us in on some key past experiences as well. The separation is clearly painful for both parties, as evidenced by Kate trying to find a new friend in her creative writing classmate, and Tully's drastic decision to head to Antartica on a documentary project. The most shocking part of all happens in the last moments of the Season 2 Part 1 finale, as Kate finds out she has an aggressive form of cancer and must immediately begin treatment. In a classic elevator scene with one coming up and one going down, Kate just misses Tully before she leaves for several months and doesn't get the chance to tell her the harrowing news. Heartbreaking!

If you've been able to put away the Kleenex boxes long enough to wonder about the next installment, keep reading for everything we know about Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2 so far.

Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2 release date

Season 2 was split into two parts (because that's Netflix's thing now), and the first part premiered on Dec. 2. The second part of Season 2 will premiere on Thursday, April 27. Katherine Heigl announced the news on her Twitter feed in February. 

Previously, Part 2 was set to premiere on June 8, but Netflix moved up the date. 

Will there be a Firefly Lane Season 3?

You'd better get your fill of giant spectacles and retro hair while you can! Firefly Lane will be ending after Season 2; there will be no Season 3.

Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2 storyline

There's really no telling how the finale will play out, seeing as the series has made a habit of deviating from the book. While the TV show has changed some key parts of Hannah's novel, including the reason for the big rift between the two best friends (in the book it's because of an on-camera fight, while the show's reason involves a much higher stakes car accident), the outcomes have been the same, which has us getting ready to pull out the tissues all over again for how the finale may or may not end. 

Possible Season 2 Part 2 Spoiler alert: In the novel, Kate reaches out to Tully again, and Tully returns from Antartica to care for her friend while she's undergoing treatments, as the two are able to repair their friendship. However, Kate ends up succumbing to the cancer and asks Tully to take care of Johnny and her daughter Marah (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, "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."
