Disney+ has ordered a fourth season of its original series “High School Musical: The Musical — The Series” just ahead of its third-season premiere on July 27.
Each of the eight episodes of the third season will stream weekly on Wednesdays, exclusively on Disney+. The Disney Branded Television series, created and executive-produced by Tim Federle, is inspired by the two-time Emmy Award-winning “High School Musical” franchise. The music-driven, GLAAD Media and Kids Choice Award-winning series has garnered record numbers for its soundtracks across the first two seasons and holiday special, with 2 billion combined streams to date, according to a Disney+ release.
“This series continues to deliver best in class drama, humor, and heart,” Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, said in a statement. “Tim Federle’s vision and interpretation of this legacy IP keeps evolving season over season and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Wildcats next.”
“This series has been an epic adventure from the start and I’m beyond grateful that we get to keep making music, telling these stories, and showcasing these exceptional stars,” Federle said in a statement.
Season three of “High School Musical: The Musical — The Series” is set at Camp Shallow Lake, a sleepaway camp in California, as the Wildcats and their fellow campers are primed for a summer ripe with romance, curfew-less nights and a taste of the great outdoors. Also, there’s a high-stakes production of Frozen on the horizon and a drama-filled “docu-series” of the production in the works.
“High School Musical: The Musical — The Series” season three stars Joshua Bassett, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett, Julia Lester, Dara Reneé, Frankie Rodriguez, Saylor Bell Curda and Adrian Lyles. Also featured this season are recurring guest stars Aria Brooks, Liamani Segura and Ben Stillwell as well as guest stars Corbin Bleu, Meg Donnelly, Jason Earles, Kate Reinders, Olivia Rose Keegan, Olivia Rodrigo, Larry Saperstein and Joe Serafini.
