Whether she's Mary Poppins, Maria, or Queen Clarisse Renaldi to you, Julie Andrews instantly inspires warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia. So now that she's making her triumphant return to the spotlight in the new Netflix series Julie's Greenroom, which premieres Friday, March 17, you better believe that the world (myself included) is excited to see her back onscreen. But after you plow through this installment's slated 13 episodes, you're probably going to want to know if Julie's Greenroom will return for Season 2.
Well, don't stream those episodes of Julie's Greenroom too quickly because Netflix has not yet officially announced whether the series will return for a second season. Even Andrews doesn't yet know, or she's at least not saying publicly. Andrews recently spoke to USA Today about some of this season's guest stars, naming Carol Burnett as one of her favorites. "I couldn't think of anyone better," Andrews said. "Hopefully if the show gets picked up (for Season 2), she'll be back." I second that emotion.
Until Netflix gives the official greenlight to Julie's Greenroom Season 2, we won't know for sure if the series is returning, and we certainly won't know when another installment will premiere, either. But Netflix is usually not too quick to cancel series after only their first season. And if Julie's Greenroom does get a Season 2, it's likely that it would bow about a year from now — so think around early Spring 2018 — since that's typically how Netflix operates with its original series premiere dates.
You can expect Season 1 of Julie's Greenroom to take you on quite the nostalgia trip, not only because of Andrews but also because of the Jim Henson Company's touch in providing the puppet cast of kids learning all about the importance of arts education from the Oscar winner and her famous friends. Henson and all of his creations, most famously the Muppets, have dazzled audiences for decades and have had a noticeable resurgence in the last few years. These days, nothing makes you smile about the past quite like the Muppets.
So whether or not Julie's Greenroom returns for Season 2, there's plenty of magnificent Muppets-like programming to make you feel like a kid again.
