“No music is worth making, Julie, if we’re not making it with you.”

High schooler Julie lost her passion for music after her mom died last year. But when the ghosts of three dreamy musicians from 1995 appear, they reawaken Julie’s own inner spirit and create a new band together: Julie and the Phantoms.

Episode Guide

1.01 – Wake Up

Episode Stills | Screen Captures

Original air date: September 10, 2020 | Directed by Kenny Ortega | Written by David Hoge & Dan Cross

In 1995, the band Sunset Curve performs a soundcheck at the Orpheum in Los Angeles, where they are set to perform later that night. Three of the bandmates (Luke, Alex, and Reggie) leave to go get food while their fourth bandmate, Bobby, stays back to flirt with a waitress named Rose. Luke, Alex, and Reggie eat “street dogs”, but the hot dogs turn out to be rancid and they die due to food poisoning. Twenty-five years later, a teenager named Julie Molina is unable to play music since her mother’s passing a year prior, which results in her dismissal from her school’s music program, to the dismay of her best friend Flynn. While going through her mother’s stuff in her family’s garage studio, she finds a Sunset Curve CD and, upon playing it, summons the three deceased Sunset Curve members as ghosts. Thinking that they died the previous night, Julie shows them an article stating they died 25 years ago, leaving them despondent. The next day, Julie sits down at her mother’s piano and plays a song her mother wrote for her. Unbeknownst to her, the boys watch her play, incredulous that the person who can see them is a talented musician as well. During the song, she is joined by (audibly) strings and drums.

After Julie plays the piano and sings for the first time in a year, the ghosts are shocked at her talent and consider asking her to join the band. Julie and Flynn try to convince the music teacher to let Julie back into the music program, but the teacher refuses, to their dismay. Meanwhile, to help sell their house, Julie’s dad, Ray, takes photos of the house and studio, but studio photos depict white orbs; Julie’s little brother, Carlos, suspects the orbs may be ghosts. The boys teleport to the beach, where more is learned about the backgrounds of their families. Later, Luke convinces Julie to play a song he wrote in front of the music teacher, but she is reluctant. At her school’s Spirit Rally, with encouragement from the guys, Julie gets on stage and begins to perform the song, “Bright”. When Julie sings, the band suddenly appears on stage playing their instruments, and they realize that they can be seen by the audience. When the song ends, the band vanishes, leaving everyone to think the boys were holograms.

When the band vanishes, Julie is bombarded with questions. Someone asks her if the band was a hologram and Julie says yes. Julie is then accepted back into the music program by the principal. Flynn then questions Julie, who continues to lie about the band. After school, Julie lets her dad know that she got back into the music program. In the studio, Alex is panicking about his ghost life, but Luke and Reggie think this is their second chance because, with Julie, they can be the band they never got to be. Overwhelmed, Alex goes for a walk to clear his head and is run over by Willie, a skateboarder who is also a ghost. Willie observes that Alex is new to being a ghost and answers Alex’s many questions. Back at the studio, Luke and Reggie find lyrics in Julie’s room, which they use to create a song. Julie walks in and they invite her to join the band, but she can’t think of anything other than Flynn. She later finds Flynn, about to egg Julie’s window, and tells her the truth. At first, Flynn doesn’t believe her, but Julie then performs “Flying Solo” and the band becomes visible to Flynn.

As the boys prepare to poof to The Orpheum to join Julie, Caleb appears and intervenes by transporting them to The Hollywood Ghost Club and forces them to perform with him and his orchestra. As show time approaches, Julie becomes anxious when the guys don’t appear. A sign is given to Julie that she is meant to perform, so she takes matters into her own hands and performs by herself. Thankfully, as she begins performing, the phantoms escape from Caleb and appear one by one. At the end of the performance, the guys poof out. When Julie and her family return home, Julie returns to her studio, and believing that the boys have crossed over, thanks them for being there for her. But in reality, it turns out that playing the Orpheum wasn’t their unfinished business, and that they never crossed over.
