Netflix's 'Firefly Lane' to End After 16-Episode Second Season

Netflix has today announced that its original drama series Firefly Lane will end with its upcoming second season. The streamer has also announced a premiere date for the 16-episode final season - which will be split into two parts.

Part 1 of the second and final season - which will include nine episodes - will be available on Friday, December 2. Part 2 - which will feature the final seven episodes - will launch in 2023, with a specific date to be announced later.

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 drama stars Katherine Heigl, Sarah Chalke, Ben Lawson, Beau Garrett, Ali Skovbye, Roan Curtis, Yael Yurman, India de Beaufort, Greg Germann, Jolene Purdy and Ignacio Serricchio.

Maggie Friedman serves as showrunner. She executive produces with Heigl, Shawn Williamson, Michael Spiller and Stephanie Germain.
