Firefly Lane Season 2 spoilers
Firefly Lane is based on Kristin Hannah’s book, but it was a loose adaptation of the storyline.
However, while the plotlines changed, the characters ended up in a similar place. There were big questions at the end of Season 1 of Firefly Lane.
Something happened to Kate and Tully’s friendship, and Kate said she’ll never forgive Tully. Is Johnny Ryan gone for good?
Here is a look at how Firefly Lane Season 1 ended and what it could mean for Season 2 on Netflix.
Firefly Lane takes place in three decades, from the 1970s to the 2000s. After a new sleazy producer named Wilson (Martin Donovan) took over, Tully quit her television show, The Girlfriend Hour.
Tully now wants to create a new show and asked Kate to help produce it. However, as a show taking place over different time frames, a new time frame is introduced with Kate and Tully at a funeral, and something has happened to drive the friends apart.
What happened to the friends?
In the book that the Netflix show is based on, Tully ambushes Kate on The Girlfriend Hour when she asks her to come on with her daughter Marah and talk to a family therapist about their issues.
However, Tully’s show’s topic was “overprotective mothers and the teenage daughters who hate them.” In the book, Kate tells Tully she knows nothing about families, that her own mother didn’t love her, and that she would sell her soul for fame before leaving.
The two didn’t speak for years after this in the book. This might be what fans of the show might be preparing to see.
There is also the fate of Johnny Ryan. In the show, Johnny is in Iraq covering the war in 2003. An IED is triggered, and he is shown down, with his fate unknown.
In the book, it wasn’t the 2003 war in Iraq but was instead in the early ’90s at Operation Desert Storm. There was a bombing, and Johnny was seriously injured.
While Kate and Tully rush to Germany to be by his side, Tully brings a cameraperson and uses this to further her own career.
In the book, Johnny survives.
Netflix has yet to announce when Firefly Lane Season 2 will premiere.
