There's a new show on its way to Netflix and it's got High School Musical creator, Kenny Ortega at the helm - so we're expecting huuuge things.
The show, titled Julie and the Phantoms will drop on the streaming platform in September and it'll be made up of nine, 30-minute episodes - so very bingeable I think we can all agree...
So what's it all about then? Well, it focuses on high school student Julie (Madison Reyes) who lost her passion for music when her mum sadly passed away last year.
But when the ghosts of three musicians from 1995 (Charlie Gillespie, Jeremy Shada and Owen Patrick Joyner) suddenly appear in her mum's old music studio, Julie begins to feel inspired to start singing and writing her own music once again.
Making friends with the ghosts, they convince Julie to create a band - aptly named Julie and the Phantoms. The series is all about the highs and lows of life, growing up, following your passions and believing in yourself.
Created by Emmy Award-winning director Kenny Ortega, Dan Cross and Dave Hoge (The Thundermans, Pair of Kings) serve as executive producers and Paul Becker (Descendants, Mirror Mirror) is choreographer on the show.
We're expecting some seriously impressive dancing and heaps of catchy songs, just like High School Musical.
The cast also includes includes Booboo Stewart as Willie, Cheyenne Jackson as Caleb, Carlos Ponce as Ray, Sonny Bustamante as Carlos, Jadah Marie as Flynn, Sacha Carlson as Nick and Savannah Lee May as Carrie.
The streaming platform has described it as a "fresh and exciting new musical series about embracing life's ups and downs, following your dreams, and discovering the power of your own voice" and the series will land in full on Thursday 10th September.
Prepare to have a whole host of new songs buzzing around in your head for weeks! We can't wait...
