Julie and the Phantoms, a musical comedy, launched its first season on Netflix in the fall of 2020 and rapidly gained fans. Julie, performed by Madison Ryes, unknowingly calls upon the spirits of Sunset Curve, a perished boyband. Together, they explore their love of music, and the storyline transforms. After the first season, fans had waited over a year for another season. However, Julie and the Phantoms season 2 was canceled, and here is everything we know about it.
The Premiere date for the Julie and the Phantoms season 2 was set to be Thursday, September 9, 2021, and the 9-episodes season was to be released on the said date. However, Kenny Ortega, the executive producer, reported no plans for the series on Netflix or any other platforms. The series would not come back with another season.
The first season's ending was a pretty close call, as the audience was left surprised after how events unfolded. After Caleb Covington marked Reggie, Luke, and Alex, they had to accept to join his band or be sent into nothingness. On the other hand, they could figure out their past and cross over to the other side. Either way, the band and Julie would end up separated.
Finally, the band boys decide to cross over to the other side, protecting Julie from the truth. However, Julie finds out later in the episode when the twist unfolds. After Julie attempts to convince the boys to join Caleb's band, they start to glow and feel each other. Even Caleb's mark comes off the boys. This connection between Julie and the band can be inferred from their mother being the one who sent the boys.
The team also makes Caleb angry, who then possesses Nick to get closer to the band and avenge for rejecting his offer.
The ending to the first season left the audience in quite a suspense, and there were many anticipations as to what would happen next. Before canceling the Julie and the Phantoms Season 2 on Netflix, Kenny Ortega also hinted at the beginning of season 2 of the Julie and the Phantoms, answering major cliffhangers from season 1. He told the DigitalSpy, "We have some big plans for season two, to go even further into our stories, and even further into our music. We hope to maybe even take this on the road, and tourJulie and the Phantomsas a live musical experience.” This statement predicted a lot of fresh new music emerging from season 2 of Julie and the Phantoms, with further exploration of the ghostly band.
On the other hand, Alex and Willie sorting things out towards the end of the first season suggested the two would work on their relationship and explore it further in the second season. Booboo Stewart, to Entertainment Tonight, said, "I want a full-blown relationship to come of it, for sure. Definitely. Why not? I would love that. If there's a season 2, I'll be suggesting it. I would really love that. I, personally, really enjoyed doing those scenes. There's something special there, and I'd really love to dive deeper into that."
The chemistry between Julie and Luke has been a hot topic following the release of the first season, and here's what lead actor, Madison Reyes, had to say about the relationship between Julie and Luke to PopBuzz, "That's what I like about their relationship. It's a deep connection... I think we should show that you don't need to just fall for any guy that you like. You can take your time. We still don't know if they're just gonna stay here or how much longer they still have on the Earth."
If the makers did not cancel Julie and the Phantoms Season 2, the show would have returned with most of the main characters. The character of Madison Reyes portrayed as Julie would return as she is the principal figure and from whom the show gets its title.
The members of the ghost band, including Jeremy Shada as Reggie the bass player, Charlie Gillespie as Luke the guitarist, and Owen Patrick Joyner as Alex the drummer, would have likely returned. Others like Cheyenne Jackson(Caleb), Booboo Stewart(Willie), Jadah Marie(Flynn), Sacha Carlson(Nick), Sonny Bustamante(Carlos Molina), Carlos Ponce(Ray Molina), Danube R. Hermosillo(Rose), and Carrie(Savannah May) in all likelihood would have returned too.
