Firefly Lane on Netflix
Firefly Lane arrived on Netflix on February 3rd, 2021.
The 10-episode series tells the story of lifelong friends Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey. Spanning several decades, we learn how the pair met and how their relationship developed.
The two couldn’t be more different, Tully has always been bold and popular while Kate has looked to enjoy the simple things in life but despite their differences, they’ve always managed to maintain their strong bond.
But could that all be about to change?
Is Firefly Lane based on a book?
- Yes, Firefly Lane is indeed based on a book.
Published in 2008, Firefly Lane was written by American author, Kristin Hannah and quickly became a New York Times bestseller.
As expected, the series derives much of its story from the original source material and Kristen Hannah even serves as a co-executive producer on the series, meaning that Netflix’s adaptation shouldn’t stray too far from the original.
Is Firefly Lane part of a book series?
- Yes, Firefly Lane is one of two books in a series.
Following the success of 2008’s Firefly Lane, Kristen Hannah revisited ‘TullyandKate’ in 2013’s Fly Away.
After meeting the pair in Firefly Lane, the sequel story rips the two apart in unimaginable ways.
As Firefly Lane is part of a series of books, fans will no doubt be hoping that the Netflix adaptation is popular enough so that it returns for a second season to explore the story of the sequel novel.
Firefly Lane is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on February 3rd, 2021.
