'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series' Scores Early Second Season Renewal at Disney+by ZachPerilstein
The new meta-take on Disney Channel's phenomenon High School Musical has already been renewed before the first episode even airs.
Disney+ isn't wasting time getting down to business. Whether it is strategically making a massive thread of content to early renewals for original series. Disney's new streaming arm is making moves before its official launch on November 12.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will be on Disney+ but it will also show a preview episode on other Disney platforms like ABC, Disney Channel and Freeform on November 8.
Production for season two will begin in early 2020. The series will be set at the actual East High and focus on a group of students putting on a production of High School Musical.
The first season will be 10 episodes and it's in a documentary style format. This is Disney's attempt at reimagining the world of High School Musical for a new generation. The series stars Joshua Bassett, Olivia Rodrigo, Kate Reinders, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett, Dara Reneé, Julia Lester, Frankie A. Rodriguez and Larry Saperstein, and Mark St. Cyr.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is just one of the many originals that will be available on opening day of Disney+. Disney+ launches on November 12.
