You can’t deny that there are some television performers that will always bring eyeballs to whatever they’re in. As luck would have it, Netflix’s new drama series Firefly Lane has two such performers in the headlining roles. Based on the book of the same name by Kristin Hannah, Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke star as lifelong best friends Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey. Tully and Kate’s friendship has been consistent but also complicated throughout four separate decades of their lives. While their bond has been tested, it’s the only thing they can each count on.

Firefly Lane comes from creator Maggie Friedman, who also developed fan-favorite shows Eastwick and Witches of East End. Friedman also worked on shows such as Once and Again, Dawson’s Creek and No Tomorrow. The series wrapped filming in January 2020, just ahead of the production shutdowns that delayed a number of shows in streaming and broadcast. The first season of the feel-good drama contains 10 episodes, making it a quick binge to disappear into for a heartwarming weekend. Thanks to its stellar co-leads, Firefly Lane is a series that can’t be missed when the first season begins streaming on Feb. 3.
