The original Wildcats return for ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’

While the big focus on Disney+ has been Marvel and Star Warsone of the best surprises of the streamer has been High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The hilarious mockumentary-style musical comedy series just wrapped its sun-drenched third season last summer, but production on season 4 is already underway. However, that’s not the best part as this season will feature a huge high school musical meeting. Disney has announced that corbin blue, Monique Coleman, lucas grabel, bart johnson, alyson reedY kaycee stroh everyone returns to this musical franchise in season 4.

The plot synopsis for the upcoming season reads as follows:

After an epic summer at Camp Shallow Lake, the Wildcats return to East High, where they put on a stage production of “High School Musical 3: Senior Year.” But plans are interrupted when Principal Gutierrez announces that Disney has decided to make the long-awaited movie “High School Musical 4: The Reunion” on the site of his beloved high school. Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Lucas Grabeel, Bart Johnson, Alyson Reed and Kaycee Stroh will play themselves, resurrecting their “High School Musical” roles as “Chad Danforth”, “Taylor McKessie”, “Ryan Evans”, “Coach Jack Bolton, ” “Millisecond. Darbus” and “Martha Cox,” respectively, and the Wildcats will act as featured extras in the film.

Along with this meeting announcement, kylie cantrall, matthew sato, Caitlyn ReillyY Vasthy Mompoint have joined the season 4 cast in recurring guest star roles. Cantrall is a social media star named Dani, Sato is a comedy actor named Mack, Reilly is an independent film director named Quinn, and Mompoint is a choreographer named Krystal.

Notably absent from this meeting so far are Zack Efron, Vanessa HudgensY Ashley Tisdale who played Troy, Gabriella and Sharpay respectively in the original film trilogy. However, since they are literally doing high school musical 4 which is subtitled “The Reunion” in the series itself, it’s hard not to wonder if all three main leads from the original trilogy will be involved in season 4. Despite Efron and Hudgens’ rise to stardom in recent years, HSM it’s what started his rise to fame after all.

While season 3 was HSMTMTS weakest to date due to fewer episodes and rushed approach the creative team took to writing olivia rodriguez‘s Nini out of the series, it was still packed with a ton of great original music, charming character moments, and surprisingly good humor. It took the meta shenanigans established in the first two seasons to the next level. The Camp Shallow Lake production of Frozen being filmed for Disney+ was so delightfully absurd, and Bleu playing an enhanced version of himself was one of the best parts of the last season. It’s great to see him return with Grabeel, who made a cameo appearance in season 1, and most of the original. HSM cast members.

There are so many characters in the series at this point, so I hope this doesn’t distract from the newfound romance between Ricky and Gina. If season 3 proved anything, it’s that Bassett can be a leading man in Rodrigo’s absence and his chemistry with Wylie is electric. The pair definitely have the spark that Troy and Gabriella had in the original trilogy.

The writing has been the strongest part of this series in its first three seasons, so it will be exciting to see how they balance all of these different storylines. There is a lot of humor to be drawn from HSM 4 taking over the “real” East High as all of our favorite characters start their senior year. The Wildcats will also continue to deal with the potential fallout from their wild reveal. Frozen documentary film.

HMSTMTS Season 4 is currently filming in Salt Lake City, which means we could likely see the return of this musical series as early as next summer. While we wait for news on Season 4, you can stream the original high school musical trilogy along with the first three seasons of High School Musical: The Musical-The Series on Disney+ now.
