As tragἰc as it may be, the quick two seasons of numerous dubious wigs and the ending of the folksy Netflix drama Firefly Lane were always the goal.
In December of last year, fans were reunited with longtime friends Kate and Tully played by television legends Sarah Chalke and Katherine Heigl and we finally learned why their supposedly indestructible bond soured in the season-one conclusion.
It turns out that Tully had been watching over Kate’s supposed grounded daughter Marah when she allowed her to attend a frat party and then crἀshed her car after picking her up after she had a couple of too many drinks.
Fair enough, Tully wasn’t to blame for the crash aside from her int0xication, but Kate’s anger is completely understandable. And by upset, we mean blazingly angry.
Unfortunately, part one ended with Kate showing up at Tully’s apartment after finding that she had been diagnosed with breἀst cancer, only to find out that Tully had just gone for a business trip in Antarctica leaving us on yet another (even more terrbἰle) cliffhanger.
The good news is that you can now catch up on Firefly Lane’s last seven episodes which explain what this diagnosis means for Kate and whether or not she and Tully can ever make up.
You’ve already made it through, so sorry keen beans that’s the last from the dance-partying duo if you’re already here looking for the fanciful possibility of a season three. There won’t be a subsequent season to become fixated on.
Take a moment to really feel the anguish of that realization, we know it’s there. Even if it hurts, it’s not entirely unexpected. Despite the overall bittersweetness, Part 2 had a wholesome wrapped-up vibe.
There is a logical rationale for this choice, despite the fact that more time in Tully and Kate’s environment is unquestionably a good thing. Kate’s fἀtal cἀncer diagnosis played out exactly as it did on the page in the series because it is based on Kristin Hannah’s book of the same name.
When Tully hears the news, she immediately returns home to be by Kate’s side and provide the comfort she needs before she pἀsses away. We aren’t sobbing. You are sobbing.
As if that weren’t devastating enough, a moving flashforward scene shows Marah on her wedding day while Tully imagines speaking with her deceἀsed best friend about how pleased they are with her.
The ultimate emotional low point, nevertheless came when Johnny gave a distrἀught Tully a box filled with Kate’s finished book, Firefly Lane, as well as a few other precious items after she pἀssed away. We are now crying as well.
It’s no secret that Netflix frequently eliminates shows that have a lot of loose ends. First Kill, Warrior Nun, The Bastard Son, The Devil Himself and Fate: The Winx Saga are just a handful of the most recent casualties.

The decision to “supersize” season two was made in order to ensure that the story was delivered in its entirety because showrunner Maggie Friedman was unwilling to take that chance.
“Originally, season two was just going to be 10 episodes, but I was talking to one of the Netflix executives who’s been such a great champion of the show and said, ‘I know where the end of the story is’,” she told Glamour.
“‘I know exactly what I want it to be. I just want to make sure that we get there and don’t end on a cliffhanger and then something happens and we don’t complete it.’ I wanted to make sure that I got to tell the full story.”
Netflix VP of drama series Jinny Howe added that Netflix wanted to honor Friedman’s overall plan for the series:
“She wanted to tell the story in the two books. This felt like the most special and best way to deliver the series to the fans of the show while honouring Maggie’s vision at the same time.”
There you have it, then. We will always be grateful to Friedman for not wanting us to endure another Netflix cancellation. even if it means that we will spend the weeks that follow sobbing into our pillows.
No Apology Book Reviews interviewed the author in April 2021 and when asked about her next book, she said:
“I have been doing a lot of publicity and the pandemic has knocked me for a loop. I am just now thinking about some things. I had originally seen Firefly Lane as the start of a trilogy. So, I will never say never about writing a third book.”
