THE drama Firefly Lane debuts on Netflix on February 3, 2021.

The series, about an unlikely friendship, is based on a bestselling book written by Kristin Hannah.

Who is in the cast of Firefly Lane?

Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke star as two best friends who meet in 1974.

Kate, the introvert, and Tully, the coolest girl in school, form a bond that weathers every milestone in their lives, leading up to tragedy.

The series follows their relationship over several decades.

"Tully (played by Heigl) is a charismatic force of nature who spins the pain of her past into gold, while Kate (played by Chalke) is her kind, constant shadow who struggles to make her own mark," Caroline Framke of Variety writes in a review.

The series follows the two main characters from their teens to their 40s.

Actress Beau Garrett, Roan Curtis, Ben Lawson, Ali Skovbye, and others appear in the 10-episode run.

What did Heigl and Chalke say about their roles?

Heigl said the Hannah's book helped get her involved in the series.

"It was pretty instant for me," the former Grey's Anatomy star told EW.

"I mean, as soon as I finished that pilot script, I was just like, 'yeah, I would love to do this and be a part of this.'

"It felt really familiar to me and I'm a big reader.

"So I went and got the book and read it and realized I had read it before years and years ago. But I was just so re-inspired and moved by the story of these women."

Co-star Chalke said when she received the script, "I couldn't believe it when I read it."

"I just fell in love with it," she told EW.

"I laughed and I cried and then I laughed again and then I cried again and it just took me on this journey.

"I fell in love with the story of these two women and their incredible friendship over these 30 years.

"Then I fell in love with the role of Kate and how lucky it was to get to play somebody over these decades and how she changed and went from being awkward and shy and vulnerable to really finding herself and finding a voice in what she wanted."
