Who dies in ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2? Netflix series set to end with a heartbreaking adieu

Kristin Hannah's original book does feature a character's death, and with the series ending, the big question is who the makers decide to kill off

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: If you are a drama lover who goes more the Netflix-and-sob way, you are most likely familiar with ‘Firefly Lane'. And if you aren't, you are definitely missing out. This series follows the turbulent friendship of Kate and Tully, played by Sarah Chalke and Katherine Heigl, over three decades. If you think you have seen characters go through hell and back, think again because Kate and Tully have seen it all and been through it all. But will they come out stronger in ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2?

Much like several other Netflix series, ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 has also been divided into halves. Most recently, you might have recognized this pattern in the series ‘You'. The strategy has clearly worked for the other shows, and just like that, the anticipation for ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2 has also been at an all-time high. The reason: the possibility of a major character’s death.

Is someone going to die in ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2?

The first season of ‘Firefly Lane’ is based on a book written by Kristin Hannah, and heavily inspired by real events, which makes the series more heartbreaking and real than one could imagine. While the first season closely followed the book, the second iteration has taken some creative liberties and explored grounds beyond it, and Kristin Hannah has relished watching it as a viewer. This brings us to one of the many million-dollar questions about the series - will there be a major character death in ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2?

Hannah's book does feature a character death, one that will truly shake you to your core, even though you can possibly see it coming after watching the first part of ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2. Usually, series and movies steer away from major character deaths and deliver a happy ending to their viewers, but in our opinion, ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2 isn’t going to join that roster.

It has been confirmed that ‘Firefly Lane’ isn’t returning for another season, which means it has nothing to lose, and ending with a character death would be rather logical. The question that remains is who will die: Kate or Tully? After watching the previous episodes, Kate’s death is the most likely outcome at the end of ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2. As heart-wrenching as it might be, it is inevitable.

Kate’s character is based loosely on the author’s mother, who died after battling cancer. So the series would be paying tribute to Hannah’s mother, should Kate die in ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2. The other option is Tully, and while fans are conflicted, we are almost certain Netflix will not be taking that route.

Will ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2 have a happy ending?

If drama series and films have taught us one thing, it’s that death doesn’t always have to be sad. It can symbolize closure and a life well lived, and that’s exactly how we are hoping ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2 will portray Kate’s death.

The creators of the story might pick a page from a show like ‘Dead to Me’ but nevertheless, we are rooting for a bittersweet ending, because that would wrap up the entire series in the best and most meaningful way possible.

‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Part 2 will release on April 27, 2023, at 12 am PT and will be exclusively available on Netflix.
