The Firefly Lane girls are heading back to Netflix.
In a zoom video set to address fan questions, Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke announced that Netflix has given a second-season pick up to their drama series ‘Firefly Lane’ where they both star as best friends Tully and Kate respectively.
Following its first season debut in February this year, the show racked up 49 million views globally on the platform within its first 28 days of streaming. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show also scored a No.1 placement on Nielsen’s streaming rankings in the week of February 3 and accumulated over 4-billion-minute watch by U.S subscribers within its first five-week stay on the platform.
‘Firefly Lane’ based on the novel by Kristin Hannah follows the lives of Tully and Kate, two unlikely duo who become inseparable after meeting at age 14. Their separate lives marked with family dramas and inconsistencies make them co-dependent on each other, establishing a lifelong pact of friendship and sisterhood. Despite taking divergent paths in life, their bond remains, until it faces the ultimate test.
The show was created by Maggie Friedman, who doubles as executive producer and showrunner. Heigl and Shawn Williamson also executive produce, and Hannah co-executive produces.
