When Disney+ launched during November 2019, it came with a few exclusive and original television shows. One spin-off was based on the Disney Channel original movie High School Musical, featuring some of the songs from the original movie.

What made High School Musical: The Musical: The Series different from the movie is that it features high school students as they put on their production of High School Musical. Over the 10 episodes of the first season, there were even a few cameos from High School Musical cast members and even original songs for this television show.
