Julie and the Phantoms, based on the Brazilian children’s series Julie e osFantasmas, has been canceled by Netflix more than a year after its first season premiered on Netflix on Sept. 10.

Julie and the Phantoms season 2 plot: What would have happened?
Executive producers David Hoge and Dan Cross told TVLine before the show was canceled, “If we were lucky enough to get a second season, the ghosts would have a lot going on. They have always wanted their music to be heard by everyone. Luke says all the time that they want to connect with their audience.
“A top-selling album? The song that is number one? No matter what it takes, they want their music to be remembered. But as you saw at the end, there are still a lot of things that could stop them. And now it looks like there’s an “obstacle” in the inner circle.”
Everyone in the cast had their own hopes for how things would have gone.
“In the first season, we had so much to learn before starting anything. Now there’s chemistry! We’ve all learned a lot, from music to how things are shot to how visual effects work. So, I’m excited to see the music set pieces we have in season two, now that we’ve gotten off to a great start and are really good at everything. Jeremy Shada told Tiger Beat, “Take that to the next level.”
“I want to add more Latin culture to the show for sure! “I really want to try to bring more of Julie’s culture to the show,” Madison Reyes said. “Julie is so influenced by her culture, and we can see that in her house and in how she dresses.
“I wish our superpowers would get stronger! In the first season, we are brand-new ghosts who are learning how to pick up things and teleport. Then you look at someone like Caleb, who is a master ghost who can levitate and make other people appear and disappear. That would make history! Also, how cool would it be if the original cast of “Julie and the Phantoms” showed up for a few minutes in season two? Charlie Gillespie said.
The first season set up the idea that our undead bandmates are still on Earth because they have things to do. At the end of the first set of episodes, that unfinished business hadn’t been solved.
Also, the first season ended with a pretty big cliffhanger: Caleb Covington took over Nick’s body for what we can only assume are bad reasons. We’ll never know what he plans to do again.
The love triangle between Julie, Luke, and Nick would have probably been explored more, especially after that season one cliffhanger.
Reyes told E! about Julie and Luke’s relationship, “I’m excited to see where it goes, especially since we didn’t just jump right into the two of them getting together or something like that. It wasn’t the usual “girl meets boy, boy and girl fall in love” story. They had trouble. There was trouble.
“They know it’s not right and that it’s not going to work out, but it’s amazing that they can ignore what other people think and just care about each other for who they are, what they stand for, and what they show the world.
“And I think we should make that clear, especially to younger people who need to know that you don’t always have to hurry. It is better to get to know someone. Also, you should listen to what other people have to say, but if your heart is telling you this and you have a gut feeling, then just do it.”
But she said that the two of them would never kiss again.
“No. PopBuzz asked her about the idea, and she said, “I don’t really think so.” “This is what I like about how they get along. It goes back a long way… I think we should show that you don’t have to fall in love with any guy. You don’t have to hurry. We still don’t know if they’re just going to stay here or how much longer they have left on Earth.
Ortega added, “There’s still a long way to go in building their chemistry and connection with each other… there’s so much we can show without having to show it physically.” That’s what makes them so great.”
