Warning: Spoilers ahead. Ever since it first hit Netflix in September, fans have been seriously obsessed with the series Julie and the Phantoms. The coming-of-age story followed stars Madison Reyes, Charlie Gillespie, Owen Joyner, Jeremy Shada, Booboo Stewart, Cheyenne Jackson, Carlos Ponce, Sonny Bustamante, Jadah Marie, Sacha Carlson, and Savannah Lee May after the ghosts of three dreamy musicians from 1995 appear in main character Julie’s music studio just as she loses her passion for music. Throughout the first season, fans watched as the teen gets inspired to start making music again and creates a new band with the three boys.
After its global success, Julie and the Phantoms was nominated for 13 2021 Emmy Awards. Following the news, Madison took to Instagram Stories and told fans she’s “speechless.” The actress also teamed up with costars Owen and Charlie for an Instagram Live in June 2021 and updated fans on the future of the show. While they didn’t confirm anything just yet, the stars definitely pleaded with Netflix for more episodes. “It seems like they’re working on it, but no official pickup yet,” Charlie said at the end of the cast’s livestream.
Since binge-watching the entire first season in one sitting, fans have seriously been wondering if there’s a season 2 in the works. Well, J-14 did some investigating and found out that the streaming service has yet to confirm whether or not Julie and the Phantoms would be returning for a second season in the near future, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Despite the lack of confirmation, the show’s cast and crew has actually spilled a lot of tea on what they hope to see in a possible season 2, and yes, a love interest between Julie and Luke is number one on everyone’s list of storylines!
“They had a strong connection when it comes to songwriting and … if we were to get our second season, that’s where their strongest connection will be because it’s hard enough to be in a relationship,” showrunner Dan Cross told Entertainment Tonight in September 2020. “It’s even harder to be in a relationship with somebody in your own band, and it’s even harder to be in a relationship with somebody that’s dead.”
Descendants star Sarah Jeffery also wants to make a guest-starring role in the possible second season, and we’re so here for it! When a fan took to Twitter and asked the actress, “Would you like to guest star on Julie and the Phantoms?” she responded with, “YES 100X YES.”
