Will Firefly Lane Return for Season 3 on Netflix? +2023

Warning: Major spoilers for Firefly Lane Season 2 ahead.

Netflix dropped part 1 of Firefly Lanes two-part second season today, and fans who’ve raced through the nine episodes have done so a lot of of questions.

Season 2, Part 2 – which will consist of seven episodes – will premiere in 2023. However, with Part 1 ending on several major cliffhangers, fans can’t help but wonder if there’s enough time to piece the story together in a satisfying way, or if there’s hope Firefly Lane Season 3.

The drama, based on the novels by Kristin Hannah, follows the friendship of Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke) and Tully Hart (Katherine Heigl) over the course of 30 years. Through flashbacks featuring Ali Skovbye as Young Tully and Roan Curtis as Young Kate, we see the dynamic duo share ups and downs, romance, heartbreak, trauma and celebrations over the decades. But if you’ve flown through the first nine episodes of season two, you know they end up with Tully and Kate’s lives in a complete mess. (Spoilers are coming!) The two no longer speak, Tully heads to Antarctica for a new career opportunity, and Kate has just found out she has aggressive stage 3 breast cancer.

Can all these bombs be successfully researched and solved in just seven episodes? Or will Firefly Lane Return for Season 3 on Netflix? Read on to see if Season 2 really is the end of this moving series.

Will there be a season 3 of Firefly Lane on netflix?

As mentioned, Season 2 may only have nine episodes, but there is still so much to do Firefly Lane to sort out before the series ends. So does that mean there will be a season 3 of Firefly Lane? Sadly no. It is still planned to conclude the series with Season 2, which is oversized to a total of 16 episodes. On October 3, 2022, Netflix announced that Season 2 would be over Firefly Lane‘s Streaming Road, and nothing has changed since the announcement. The streaming platform even included a minute-long preview of Season 2, Part 2 at the end of Episode 9 to let fans know “The Final Chapter” would be available to stream on June 8, 2023.

Hannah’s book series that inspired the show consists of just two novels: Firefly Lane and Fly away. So it makes sense that the Netflix series would only last two seasons. And if the show stays true to the book – especially considering Kate’s fate – then we fully understand why the show would end with Season 2.

In Season 2, Episode 9, Kate learns that she has “rare and very aggressive” stage 3 breast cancer. And in the book series, she sadly dies from the disease. Because the core of Firefly Lane has always been Kate and Tully’s relationship, the show just wouldn’t be the same without one of the girls from Firefly Lane. Although we’ll have to wait to find out Kate’s fate in the Netflix series, rest assured that the show will end with Season 2 Episode 16 next year.

The first nine episodes of Firefly Lane Season 2 is currently available to stream on Netflix.
