Netflix has revealed the Firefly Lane trailer and poster, as well as the poster for The Midnight Sky. The streaming service also announced that Firefly Lane will launch on February 3, 2021.
Firefly Lane is a series based on the novel of the same name (buy at Amazon) by New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah, who serves as co-executive producer.
Creator Maggie Friedman serves as showrunner and executive producer along with executive producers Peter O’Fallon, Katherine Heigl, Shawn Williamson and Lee Rose. The series consists of ten 60-minute episodes.
The greatest love story of all can be between friends. When unlikely duo Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke) meet at age fourteen, they couldn’t be more different. Tully is the brash and bold girl you can’t ignore, while Kate is the mousy shy girl you never notice.
But when a tragedy brings them together, they are bonded for life — forever inseparable best friends. Together they experience thirty years of ups and downs — triumphs and disappointments, heartbreak and joy, and a love triangle that strains their friendship.
One goes on to fabulous wealth and fame, the other chooses marriage and motherhood — but through the decades, their bond remains — until it faces the ultimate test.
Along with Heigl and Chalke, Ben Lawson (Johnny), Ali Skovbye (Young Tully), Roan Curtis (Young Kate), Yael Yurman (Marah) and Beau Garrett (Cloud) star in the series.

Directed by and starring Academy Award winner George Clooney, post-apocalyptic tale The Midnight Sky is opening in select theaters this month and will be available on Netflix December 23. The film is an adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight.
The Midnight Sky follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe.
Mark L. Smith adapted the screenplay from the novel. Smokehouse Pictures’ Grant Heslov (Academy Award winner) and Clooney produce alongside Anonymous Content and Syndicate Entertainment.
Brooks-Dalton’s novel (buy at Amazon) was met with critical acclaim and was named one of the best books of the year by Shelf Awareness and the Chicago Review of Books.
“Grant and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved with this incredible project,” said Clooney previously. “Mark is a writer we’ve long admired and his script is haunting. We’re thrilled to be working with our friends at Netflix as well.”
“Having known and worked with George for over two decades, I can’t think of anyone better to bring this amazing story to life,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film division.
“The book is powerful and moving, and Mark’s adaptation is beautifully written. At its core, this is a story about human nature, and one that I know our global audiences will fall in love with, just like I did when I read it.”
