HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: THE MUSICAL: THE SERIES aiming for ‘tale as old as time’ in second season on #DisneyPlus
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: THE MUSICAL: THE SERIES has proven to be as popular as it is a mouthful to say! Disney+ confirmed today that production has resumed in Salt Lake City on the second season of the popular Disney+ series.
In the new season, the East High drama students will prepare to perform “Beauty and the Beast” as their Spring musical. Slated for a late 2020 debut on Disney+, the second season will include reimagined musical numbers from both the “High School Musical” movies and the stage production of “Beauty and the Beast,” in addition to brand-new songs that join hits from season one like “Born to Be Brave” and “Just for a Moment.”
The soundtrack entered the Billboard 200 at (#31). Most recently, the single “All I Want,” written and performed by Olivia Rodrigo, has garnered over 52 million streams globally across all platforms. Rodrigo will perform the song on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Thursday, February 6 (check local listings).
Joe Serafini (“Seb”) will be a series regular in season two, joining Olivia Rodrigo (“Nini”), Joshua Bassett (“Ricky”), Matt Cornett (“E.J.”), Sofia Wylie (“Gina”), Larry Saperstein (“Big Red”), Julia Lester (“Ashlyn”), Dara Reneé (“Kourtney”), Frankie Rodriguez (“Carlos”), Mark St. Cyr (“Mr. Mazzara”) and Kate Reinders (“Miss Jenn”).
Created and executive-produced by Tim Federle (Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated “Ferdinand”) the second season will also feature Federle as executive producer.
