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 recently 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?!

When is the Firefly Lane season 2 release date?

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. According to ProductionWeekly, filming for season 2 kicked off in Vancouver, Canada on August 30, 2021, and will wrap on April 20, 2022. 

Heigl confirmed the news along with pictures of her three adorable children, writing: Back in Vancouver for season two of Firefly Lane on and missing these faces…a lot. Like a lot a lot…no one said it would be easy…but let’s hope it’s worth it. @netflix"

When inevitably asked if she knew about the release date for season two by a fan in response to her tweet, Heigl couldn't confirm and merely replied: "No but it will be in 2022."

She also responded to another fan fishing  for spoilers with a cheeky: "Haha I wish ❤️"

Heigl's costar Sarah Chalke also gave fans a peek at some behind-the-scenes production snaps from season two on her Instagram stories, including shots of her getting fitted for an 80s-tastic wig. Because what is Firefly Lane without some epically retro hairdos?

What will happen in Firefly Lane season 2?

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.)
