Firefly Lane season 2 returned to Netflix with Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke returning as childhood best friends Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey.

Based on Kristin Hannah's best-selling novel of the same name, Firefly Lane tells the story of longtime best friends Tully and Kate and their journeys throughout their three-decade friendship where they navigate love, loss and heartbreak.

Firefly Lane season one ended on a major cliffhanger with Tully and Kate no longer speaking and their everlasting bond supposedly shattered.

So, with the pair at loggerheads, let's take a look at the Firefly Lane season 2 cast reprising their roles as well as the newcomers arriving in season 2...
