Fans first met Nini and Ricky in November 2019, with the premiere of ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’

It’s finally time for her moment in the spotlight. We’ve seen Nini and Ricky from the audition process to blocking to tech rehearsal. Now, it’s opening night for this production of High School Musical, with Nini in her starring role as Gabriella and Ricky as her co-star, Troy.

After weeks of rehearsal, it’s finally opening night for the cast of this high school musical. Nini, Ricky, and the rest of this drama department take the stage. However, there are still a few obstacles standing in their way. Will Nini overcome her stagefright to impress the Dean in the audience? Will EJ actually go on for the role of Troy?

When does the next episode of  ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ premiere on Disney+?

We have some bad news for some fans of these East High Wildcats. There is only one episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series left, premiering on this streaming platform on Jan. 10, 2020. This is the 10th episode in the first season, entitled “Act Two.”

This will be the last time fans see these characters perform iconic High School Musical songs, including the few original songs written specifically for this spin-off series. (We’re looking at you, Olivia Rodrigo.) However, Deadline reports that this television show will return to the streaming platform for a second season.

Cast members of ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ discussed characters like Ricky and Nini

What’s next for characters like Nini and Ricky? Although this Disney+ series has been renewed for its second season, there is no official premiere date for the next season. Until then, some cast members commented on the characters and their respective relationships.

“It perfectly mirrors real high school love lives. They can be pretty messy and the line is constantly blurred and literally every week, a new thing happens. I know at least when I was in high school, you’re trying to keep up with what’s going on and you’re like, ‘Wait, they’re dating who now? This happened last night, what are you talking about?'” Joshua Bassett said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“Everything’s kind of all over the place and it’s cool to see the characters not only figure out their relationship with each other but also grow into themselves as they are in their later years in high school and really starting to define who they are and what they stand for,” the actor continued. “I think it’s cool to see the development of that throughout this season and seasons to come.”

Episodes of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series are available on Disney+, in addition to High School Musical, High School Musical 2, and High School Musical: Senior Year. To learn more about this streaming service and to subscribe, visit their website.
