Netflix star Brandon Jay McLaren is answering our latest burning question: Will Firefly Lane return for season two?
The 39-year-old actor (who plays Travis) recently sat down for an exclusive interview with PureWow and shared details about the popular Netflix adaptation. While discussing the differences between the series and the 2008 novel by Kristin Hannah, McLaren revealed that he’s hopeful Netflix will renew Firefly Lane for season two.
“You’ll see if you’ve read the book, but we’re only on the first season, and there’s so much story to tell,” he told PureWow. “So, my hope is that we’re going to go on for multiple seasons because the first one just, sort of, scratches the surface.”
When asked about the hypothetical season two storyline, McLaren stood his ground, adding, “When we go back. I’m going to be positive and put it out there: When we go back, my hope is that Travis and Kate are able to let their guard down a little more and go with the flow. And maybe recognize the feelings that they have for one another.”
If you haven’t watched the series or read the best-selling book by Kristin Hannah, first of all, shame on you. (Just kidding…sorta.) Second, the story spans the course of decades, following two lifelong best friends: Tallulah “Tully” Hart (Katherine Heigl) and Kate Mularky (Sarah Chalke). McLaren plays a widowed father named Travis, whose daughter just so happens to attend the same school as Marah (Yael Yurman), Kate’s daughter. Think of Firefly Lane as a cross between Gilmore Girls, Sweet Magnolias and Virgin River (AKA three of our favorite things).
If you need us, we’ll be keeping an eye out for a season two renewal. (We’re looking at you, Netflix.)
