Firefly Lane will be getting a full second season, as confirmed in May 2021. Now it looks like the series is entering pre-production and filming will start in the summer of 2021. Here’s everything we know about Firefly Lane season 2.

The show dropped on Wednesday, February 3, to mixed reviews. The public seems to find it much friendlier as it currently has a 7.5/10 as of July 1, 2021.
The show performed well in the Netflix top 10. It spent 36 days in the top 10 in the US and also performed well in the UK and most of Europe.
So that said, here’s everything we know about the future of Firefly Lane on Netflix…
has Firefly Lane renewed?
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Officially Renewed (Last Updated: 27/05/2021)
It’s been a few months, but Netflix has officially announced Firefly Lane is returning for a second season.
The news was announced through their social media platforms and on YouTube, where they had actresses Katherine Heigel and Sarah Chalke answer fan questions and make the official announcement.
The first season doesn’t include all of the material from 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 expands the story even further.
What to Expect in Season 2 of Firefly Lane
Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t completed Season 1 yet, read no further!
At the end of Season 1, two very contrasting images remain of Tully and Kate’s relationship. After Tully leaves her show, the two enjoy a friendly chat by the fire pit, where Tully promises Kate that she will help her find a job if she is rehired. We then have a flashforward to a future scene, where the pair have an emotional confrontation at a funeral, with Kate saying she never wants to see Tully again.
No doubt Season 2 will explain what happens to break Tully and Kate’s relationship so irreparably. But since this is a show about friendship, we can’t believe these two don’t make it up in the end.
Although the confrontational finale takes place at a funeral, it is not clear who the funeral is. Since Tully arrives to pay her respects, it’s clearly the funeral of someone closest to Kate. We have two likely candidates: Kate’s ex-husband, Johnny, who left for Iraq, or Kate’s elderly father. Either way, a possible 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 to Tully’s career, including whether she ever offers Kate that job.
Of course, since Firefly LanBased on a pretty famous novel, you don’t have to search too hard to find out what really happens next to Tully and Kate. Be careful out there: you might not like what you see…
Where is Firefly Lane season 2 in production and when will it be on netflix?
Filming for Season 2 will once again take place in Vancouver, Canada.
We learned that Season 2 is currently starting filming on August 30 and will run through April 2022, according to ProductionWeekly. That seems like an abnormally long production schedule, so we don’t expect this to be set in stone.
Other sources are only giving a wide movie launch for the summer of 2021, so either way, we hope to hear from the cast returning to the set in the coming months.
As for the release date, our best guess based on production schedules at the time of last release is early to mid-2022. That’s assuming the world isn’t going to lock down again, but that’s all behind us.
