High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is a Disney+ original that premiered at the platform’s launch date. Now, some fans are wondering how else they can watch this television show.

This series is exclusive to Disney’s streaming platform

Unfortunately, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is a Disney+ original and exclusive series, meaning that it will most likely never appear on television networks like Disney Channel and Disney XD. This is not the only original series on this platform, as new episodes of shows like The Mandalorian and One Day at Disney premiere on a weekly basis.

There are other Disney Channel original television shows and movies available on Disney+. That includes the movies that inspired the Disney+ original, High School Musical. High School Musical 2 and High School Musical: Senior Year are also on the subscription platform.

The cast of ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ commented on the Disney+ exclusive

This new series may be exclusive to Disney+. However, the Disney Channel movie, High School Musical, still plays periodically on the television network. During an interview with Collider, the cast of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series commented on their new television series and the legacy of the original High School Musical.

“It’s a little bit daunting, especially for me, coming into this. I was not a dancer, but in the show, we have to put on these elaborate dancing, singing musical routines, which are actually one of my favorite things about the show,” Olivia Rodrigo said. “Somebody said that the show is like Glee mixed with The Office, which I love. I think the musical numbers really add so much charm to the series. They’re totally worth all of the hard work that we put into them.”

“Not to mention most of the musical numbers are in these iconic locations in the high school. The day that I walked into the cafeteria, for the first time, I was like, ‘Oh, my God, we’re here and we’re doing High School Musical,’” Larry Saperstein added. “So, when we do these musical numbers, it’s really great because we get to pay so much respect to the original movies while still making it our own new, fresh series.”
