Alley of fireflies Season 2 is in full swing in Vancouver, Canada, having been renewed at the end of May 2021. With a full second season confirmed and filming underway, we can get a good idea of what to expect from the season 2 of Alley of fireflies. Here’s everything we know so far.
Based on the popular novel by American author Kristin Hannah, Firefly Lane tells the moving story of two best friends and the obstacles they face in their life and friendship.
The show fell on Wednesday, February 3, with mixed reviews. The public seems to have taken him much nicer to her currently wearing a 7.5 / 10 as of July 1, 2021.
The show did well in the Netflix top 10. He was in the US top 10 for 36 days and also performed well in the UK and most of Europe.
So with all that said, here’s everything we know about the future of Alley of fireflies on Netflix.
TO Alley of fireflies been renewed?
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Officially Renewed (Last Updated: 05/27/2021)
It took a few months but Netflix officially announced the return of Firefly Lane for a second season.
The news was announced via their social media platforms and on YouTube, where actresses Katherine Heigel and Sarah Chalke answered questions from fans and made the official announcement.
The first season doesn’t cover all of the material for the novel, so there’s still a lot of Tully and Kate’s story to tell. There is also a sequel to the novel, Fly away, which extends the story even more.
Maggie Friedman has been confirmed to return as showrunner for Season 2. Michael Spiller (Modern family, Scrubs) was tipped to direct in Season 2.
What to expect from Alley of fireflies season 2
Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t completed Season 1, read no further!
At the end of season 1, we find ourselves with two very contrasting images of Tully and Kate’s relationship. After Tully leaves her show, the couple enjoy a comfortable catch-up near the foyer, where Tully promises Kate that she’ll help her find a job when she’s hired again. We then have a flashforward to a future scene, where the couple have an emotional confrontation at a funeral, with Kate stating that she never wants to see Tully again.
Without a doubt, Season 2 will explain what happens to sever Tully and Kate’s relationship so irreparably. However, given that this is a friendship show, we can’t believe these two won’t reconcile in the end.
Although the confrontational finale takes place during a funeral, it’s not clear who it is. Since Tully arrives to pay tribute to her, it is clearly the funeral of someone close to Kate. We have two likely candidates: Kate’s ex-husband Johnny, gone to Iraq, or Kate’s elderly father. Either way, a potential second season would cover the impact this has on Kate, as well as her teenage daughter, Marah.
We think Season 2 would also explore what happens next with Tully’s career, including whether she ever offers Kate that job.
Of course, since Firefly LanIt’s based on a pretty famous novel, you don’t have to look too hard to find out what’s really going on next to Tully and Kate. Be careful there: you might not like what you see …
Although still to be confirmed, the episode titles have been uploaded to IMDb. They are as follows:
- Episode 1 – I wish you were there
- Episode 2 – On the Road
- Episode 3 – I’m going out
- Episode 4 – Daddy Doesn’t Preach
