Firefly Lane: Sarah Chalke as Kate, Katherine Heigl as Tully

Firefly Lane's Soundtrack Will Have You Crying Through The Decades

But you'll also be dancing through the tears.

by Ani Bundel

Kristin Hannah’s novel Firefly Lane was a bestseller for all the right reasons. A laugh-out-loud tearjerker about a lifelong friendship between two women, it spanned generations from the 1970s to the 2000s. The Netflix series, starring Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke, is a similarly emotional roller coaster, with costumes and music to match the times. Like the first season, the Firefly Lane Season 2 soundtrack is stuffed to the gills with songs from every era, so you can dance through the tears.

The first season of Firefly Lane ended on a cliffhanger, as fans discovered Tully (Heigl) and Kate (Chalke) had a falling out that finally severed their friendship. Season 2, divided into two parts, once again slides through the decades to bring the characters to the point of falling out, with the ultimate promise of putting it all back together again.

As the characters mature through the different eras, they’re constantly surrounded by the songs of the times, and like Season 1, some of Season 2’s episodes are wall-to-wall stuffed with bangers. A few episodes even contain enough tracks to be their own albums, which is to be expected when every episode is also a song title. By the time you put together all the songs together from the season, it’s a playlist that can last a lifetime.
