Netflix Cancels Julie and the Phantoms After One Season

Julie and the Phantoms has been canceled by Netflix after one season. The supernatural musical comedy, which was based on the Brazilian series Julie e os Fantasmas, premiered in September 2020. It followed Julie Molina (played by Madison Reyes), a teenage musician who accidentally summons the ghosts of three dead rockers: Luke (Charlie Gillespie), Alex (Owen Patrick Joyner), and Reggie (Jeremy Shada). Over the course of nine episodes, the trio supports Julie in achieving her dreams. And, in turn, she helps them with their unfinished music business. Given that the show concluded its first installment well over a year ago, fans have been eager to learn if the series will return.

Now, unfortunately, executive producer Kenny Ortega confirmed that Julie and the Phantoms will not be returning for season 2. In an Instagram post, Ortega expressed his thanks for the cast and crew and expressed appreciation for the support from fans. He also noted that he was proud of helping to create the show.
