Although the premise of the show was quite enjoyable, "Phil of the Future" was on air for only two seasons. Fortunately, the show was included on Disney+ in November 2019.

As a way to celebrate the show's inclusion into the Disney streaming service, Raviv Ullman answered several fan questions. He revealed that he would love to work on a sequel to help save the planet from environmental ruin.

Ullman also admitted that he didn't know why Disney decided to end the show, especially because it ended on a cliffhanger.

After "Phil of the Future" was canceled in 2006, Ullman kept landing roles in many other projects, including "Rita Rocks" and, most recently, "Strangers."

Between January and March 2012, the former child actor portrayed Alex in the Off-Broadway production "Russian Transport." It was a quite drastic change, especially considering that his character was a tough guy who sold drugs and got involved in different illegal activities.

In February 2012, Raviv Ullman shared some details of his career during an interview with Broadway.com, admitting that he was more focused on storytelling. He added:

"This is a really exciting part of my life. I moved out to New York over the summer and I think this is the beginning of a new career for me."

Ullman pointed out that he was not embarrassed about the things he did in the past. However, he said that "it's not all fun and games anymore."

The former child actor is also very passionate about music, which is probably why he has been part of a couple of bands throughout his life.
