It’s been 11 years since the East High Wildcats graced out screens with iconic songs and memorable dance moves.
After much speculation of a fourth movie, it has been revealed that High School Musical is making a comeback, but in the form of a television series.
The cast of the series has just been announced and let’s just say, the internet is not happy with Disney’s decision to revive a beloved classic.

A few months after it was revealed that the fourth installment of the High School Musical franchise will be a television show, production for the series has finally begun.
The 10 episode series will follow a group of students as they prepare for opening night of their school’s very first production of High School Musical.
Production is taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah and will feature brand-new songs as well as acoustic reinterpretations of songs from the original High School Musical movies.
In a recent Twitter post, cast of the new series was officially announced and is set to include, Joshua Bassett, Olivia Rodrigo(Bizaardvark), Kate Reinders (Modern Family, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Sofia Wylie(Andi Mack), Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs), Dara Renee (Freaky Friday), Julia Lester(Mom), Frankie Rodriguez (Modern Family), Larry Saperstein (Fan Girl), and Mark St. Cyr(Doomsday).

No one knows what to expect
So far, only the cast of High School Musical: The Series has been revealed.
Many are expecting the show to premiere sometime later this year and many do not know whether to love or hate the concept this series has in store.
All fans can expect are show-mances; tested friendships, rivalries, and changed lives; which does not leave fans with much insight.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll always have Netflix!
