FIREFLY Lane is a nostalgia trip through the 1980s – but at its very core, the show is a testament to the power of friendship and how it withstands the test of time.
The Netflix series focuses on two friends, Kate and Tully, and how they’ve dealt with life’s trials and tribulations decades after becoming best friends at the age of 14 in 1974.

Will there be a season 2 of Firefly Lane on Netflix?
Netflix has yet to announce a season two for the series, which was released on the streaming platform on February 3.
But there’s a good chance a second season could be filmed in the future if viewers can’t get enough of the first.
Season 1 of Firefly Lane comprises ten 50-minute episodes.

The series follows their friendship over several decades as they women enter their 20s, 30s, and even 40s.
“Tully (played by Heigl) is a charismatic force of nature who spins the pain of her past into gold, while Kate (played by Chalke) is her kind, constant shadow who struggles to make her own mark,” according to Variety writer Caroline Framke.
Heigl said the book helped get her involved in the series.
“I mean, as soon as I finished that pilot script, I was just like, ‘yeah, I would love to do this and be a part of this.’

Was Firefly Lane based on a book?
The Firefly Lane television series is based on the eponymous book written by Kristin Hannah and published in 2008.
It’s the first of the New York Times best-selling author Hannah’s 24 books to be adapted for the small screen – the Netflix show was adapted by Maggie Friedman.
Although the Netflix adaptation doesn’t follow the source material word for word, it stays true to the characters’ growth as described in the novel.
