'Firefly Lane' Timeline - What Years Do the Show Take Place In?

Firefly Lane is currently number one on the Netflix charts in the U.S. and everyone is talking about the new series, which stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke.

The series is based on the best-selling book, which was published in 2008, and tells “the sweeping story of two inseparable best friends and their enduring, complicated bond, spanning four tumultuous decades.”

The show goes back and forth throughout three different time periods to show Tully and Kate’s relationship throughout the years.

The timeline might confuse some viewers because the present day period does not take place in our current day and the show isn’t always super clear about the years.

The show jumps forward to over two decades later in 2003 when Tully is a successful talk show host and Kate is going through a divorce with Johnny Ryan. She also goes back to work for the first time in over a decade as the assistant of an editor.
