According to an official press release season two will resume early next year in Salt Lake City, Utah. Inspired by the pop culture sensation “High School Musical,” the series was created and is executive produced by Tim Federle, a screenwriter, novelist, librettist and self-described “musical theatre kid” whose credits include the Golden Globe® and Academy Award®-nominated “Ferdinand.”
Starring in the series is Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Larry Saperstein, Julia Lester, Dara Renee’, Frankie A. Rodriguez, Mark St. Cyr and Kate Reinders.
As announced previously, the first episode will be televised across three networks, ABC, Disney Channel and Freeform, on one night, FRIDAY, NOV. 8 (8:00 p.m. EST/PST), leading up to the Disney+ launch on Tuesday, Nov. 12. The second episode will premiere Friday, Nov. 15, on Disney+, with new episodes premiering on the streaming service every Friday.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “We challenged Executive Producer Tim Federle to re-imagine the world of ‘High School Musical’ for a contemporary audience. At every turn, Tim has delivered a show that’s imaginative, layered, optimistic and heartfelt, one that remains reverential to the original ‘High School Musical’ premise while carving out its own identity with new characters, new relationships and both new and familiar songs.” He continued, “We’re thrilled to have the encouragement and support for a second season from our platform partners at Disney+.”
The series is set at East High School, the setting and filming location of the original movies. It introduces members of the drama club and their faculty advisors as they work their way to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of “High School Musical: The Musical.” Show-mances blossom, old friendships are tested while new ones are made, rivalries flare, and lives are changed forever as these students discover the transformative power that only high school theater can provide.
