Julie and the Phantoms season 2 will likely be announced by Netflix in October 2020. The new Netflix series is off to an excellent beginning based on our indicators and we believe there is an 84% chance it will be renewed for a new season 2. We believe the renewal announcement will be made by Netflix in early October to November 2020 at the latest. The series tells the story of Julie, who lost her passion for music when she lost her mom. When Julie meets three “ghosts”, they appear to lift her spirits, and re-energize her to start a new band together.

Official Netflix status: Netflix has not yet officially approved Julie and the Phantoms season 2.
Creator Kenny Ortega adapted a 10-year old Brazilian sitcom Julie e os Fantasmas and turned it into a Netflix blockbuster. Ortega said (via Popsugar): “we were given a no-boundaries kind of opportunity to come into this and to play with the mythology and to deepen the stories. (…) It was a sitcom over 10 years old. We wanted to brighten it, freshen it, and place it in (…) the mystic specialness of Los Angeles.”
