Work for ‘Julie and the Phantoms’ season 2 already begun even before Netflix announced its renewal.
‘Julie and the Phantoms’ was a smash hit both for the young and adult Netflix subscribers.
The musical comedy series released on September 10, 2020, and fans continue to patiently wait for a new season.
‘Julie and the Phantoms’ is based on the Brazilian series 'Julie e os Fantasmas' and follows Julie Molina, a teenager who can see the ghosts of three bandmates. Julie helps the Phantoms fulfill their dreams of becoming a successful band, something they weren't able to do after their untimely death more than two decades ago.
The show's ending perfectly sets up the series for another season. Let's find out if 'Julie and the Phantoms' will return for season 2.
Renewal Status: Pending
We are still waiting for Netflix to renew ‘Julie and the Phantoms’ for season 2. Despite the lack of official announcement, both ProductionWeekly and TheCinemaSpot have reported that season 2 is already underway.
It is normal for some shows to undergo development even before they are officially renewed. 'Locke and Key' has started writing the script for season 2 long before Netflix officially announced its renewal. Executive Producer Kenny Ortega has revealed that they have also started working on season 2 while waiting for renewal.
“We’re now developing, we’re now writing [season 2], we’re now moving forward,” Ortega said in an interview with SunsetDrive Podcast, adding he has “high hopes.
In the first season, we saw Julie help Luke, Alex, and Reggie discover that music has the power to make them visible to other people. While continuing to navigate the power of music to make them real, the Phantoms ran into supernatural trouble with Caleb. Caleb gives them a countdown, threatening to banish their existence once the time is up. By the end of the first season, the Phantoms managed to overcome their doom, and they are finally able to touch each other and interact with the real world.
For season 2, Ortega teased that we will find out whether the Phantoms are ghosts or not.
"That gets answered very early on in the next season,” Ortega said during an interview with DigitalSpy,
The Phantoms may have overcome Caleb's predictions, but he is still not finished with them. Caleb has found his new ace. He uses Julie's old crush, Nick, to get closer to her.
Aside from dealing with Caleb, the new season is also expected to follow Julie's journey as she uses music to deal with her grief after losing her mom.
The first season also seemed to hint that Julie's mother might hold the explanation why only Julie can see the Phantoms and others can't.
Meanwhile, the Phantom's former bandmate, who is still alive, saw their performance in a video and recognizes them. He might finally see them face to face in the next season.
The season 1 cast members are likely to return if 'Julie and the Phantoms' gets renewed for season 2.
They are Madison Reyes as Julie Molina, Charlie Gillespie as Luke, Owen Patrick Joyner as Alex, Jeremy Shada as Reggie, Jadah Marie as Flynn, Sacha Carlson as Nick, and Savannah May as Carrie.
We will leave you with season one's official trailer while we continue to wait for the renewal for ‘Julie and the Phantoms’ season 2. We will update this article once Netflix greenlit the show for a new season. Do you want to see ‘Julie and the Phantoms’ return for season 2?
