Julie and the Phantoms spent an entire season creating some amazing music, but it’s time for it to put down its instruments. Netflix canceled this beloved musical-comedy after only one season.

Julie and the Phantoms originally premiered in September 2020, and its future has been hanging in the balance ever since. It took over a year for Netflix to announce if the show is proceeding with the second season or not, and the news wasn’t what the fans of this series expected.

The show’s producer Kenny Ortega announced that Netflix didn’t pick up the show for another season and sent endless thanks to the fans for their “tremendous outpouring of love and support”.

“Although our hearts are saddened, we move on with such pride for what we accomplished as a team and the family we built while creating Julie. We hope you will continue to follow us as we move forward with our work and careers,” wrote Ortega.

Julie and the Phantoms is based on a Brazilian TV show of the same name, and it centers on a high school girl who summons the spirit of a boy band The Phantoms, and starts making music by their side. Madison Reyes played Julie, while Charlie Gillespie, Owen Patrick, and Joyner Jeremy Shada joined her as the Phantoms.
