Where can I watch ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’?

Rodrigo’s show was born out of love for the original Disney Channel Original Movie, High School Musical. The latter was released in 2006. It made Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Monique Coleman household names. The made-for-television movie was an unprecedented success and led to two sequel films, a concert tour, merchandise, and years later, a spinoff television show.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is available to stream on Disney+. The first season came out in fall 2019, launching people like Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett into internet stardom. The show takes place at East High in Salt Lake City, Utah, where present-day high schoolers auditioned to be in their show’s musical — High School Musical.
