Is there going to be a second season of Firefly Lane, you ask? Well, breaking news straight from KPOC: Firefly Lane season 2 is officially a go, according to the show's leading ladies, Katherine Heigl (Tully) and Sarah Chalke (Kate).

The two actresses took to Zoom to share the exciting announcement over a glass of wine. We'll cheers to the fact that those agonizing cliffhangers will finally be addressed and all of our questions will be answered.

So let's dig into all things Firefly Lane season 2, but warning! *Season one spoilers ahead*

We closed out the 10-episode first season with more questions than answers: What happened to Johnny? What happened to Bud? And—most importantly—what did Tully do to Kate? In a matter of minutes, it appears as if the lifelong friendship dissipated right before our eyes. Firefly Lane girls are in fact, not forever.

"This issue between Tully and Kate—we can't say much," Sarah Chalke said over Zoom. "But what we can say is that it's family-related."

Well, now we have even more questions!

How cute are these two?

Firefly Lane season 2: Everything we know so far

Netflix has officially renewed Firefly Lane for a second season, continuing Kristin Hannah's beloved story of two best friends. Although, where we will inevitably pick up on the show's sophomore season, the two women appear to be anything but. 

We can't wait for a marathon, but we'll have to be patient: the show won't stream until 2022. A specific date has yet to be revealed. 

“We don’t have all the answers yet, but trust us: It is going to be worth the wait. And we promise all of your questions will be answered," Chalke assured us.

What will happen in the new season of Firefly Lane?

Well, the most crucial plot of all will be to get to the bottom of what horrible betrayal has ended Kate and Tully's 30-years-long friendship. The second season will likely focus on this whilst also explaining what happened to Johnny in Iraq—did he survive the bombing?

We'll hopefully also pick up where we left the teenage versions of the girls to find out where Tully goes when the police arrest her mother for selling drugs and she's ripped away from Kate's arms in that heartbreaking scene. And what does she do after quitting her job at The Girlfriend Hour? 

How will things unfold with Kate and her daughter? Will Max reemerge? There's definitely a lot to dive into when it comes to another edition of the hit Netflix series.

Plus, we're curious how closely the TV adaptation will follow the books. In the bestselling novels, one of our beloved main characters passes away. What can we expect from the series? (Although we can't confirm anything just yet, it's safe to assume that you'll want to have some tissues handy.)
