Netflix continues to wield its sharp sword as the streaming platform confirms it is cancelling Julie and the Phantoms after just one season. Kenny Ortega, the musical dramedy’s director and producer, confirmed the news via Instagram.
“We learned this week that Netflix will not be picking us up for another season,” he wrote alongside images from the show. “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.”
The show was based on the children’s series from Brazil Julie e os Fantasmas and has been cancelled over a year on from the first season airing. The show starred Madison Reyes as Julie, a high school student who lost her passion for music following her mother’s tragic death.
Her interest is piqued once more in music when the ghosts of three musicians, who found fame in the mid-1990s, suddenly appear in her mother’s dance studio. When she meets these apparitions, her dancing spirit is once again ignited.
The strange group eventually decide to group together to form a band: Julie and the Phantoms. Rounding out the cast is Booboo Stewart, Cheyenne Jackson, Carlos Ponce, Sonny Bustamante, Jadah Marie, Sacha Carlson and Savannah Lee May.
