High School Musical series season 3 — everything you need to know
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series spoilers follow.
What's up, Wildcats? Excited to revisit East High? Good! Because that's exactly where we're headed following the confirmation that season three is all systems go.
«We are overjoyed to be heading to the great outdoors for season three, and grateful to our partners and friends at Disney Plus for their continued support of our next-generation Wildcats,» said creator and executive producer Tim Federle (via Variety).
So grab some risotto (too soon?), do your stretches, and grab that mic as we sing and dance our way through everything we know about HSM:TM:TS season three.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3 release date: When will it return on Disney+?
Filming will kick off «later this year», which means those brand new episodes won't arrive until the end of 2022 at the very earliest.
Patience is a virtue, friends.
HSM:TM:TS season 3 cast: Who will be in it?
A Disney Plus spokesperson told Variety that both new and old faces will be announced in the «near future».
Given Olivia Rodrigo's rapid rise to stardom as a successful solo artist, it's unclear what the future holds for Nina Salazar-Roberts.
«I think they [the storylines] were [left more open-ended for Nini],» Federle told Hollywood Life. «I think things are open-ended actually for a number of characters just because you want the maximum flexibility going forward.
Look, I have so much respect for Olivia as a songwriter and as a human and what her own dreams are. I love High School Musical with Olivia.
I think Olivia is a massive part of our success, but I think season three is sort of a TBD in terms of where Nini’s journey would go.»
Rodrigo previously told The Guardian that she is «committed to HSM for two more years», which bodes well for season three. But it doesn't seem ly that Rodrigo will stay beyond that as she wants to focus more on her own music moving forward.
«I think it's really hard to split time between the two and there are very few artists who do that efficiently, because acting is being a good liar and presenting a version of yourself that's believable, and being a songwriter is the complete opposite. It's , here are all of my deepest, darkest secrets and I want you to know me so personally.»
As for the rest of the cast, there's:
• Joshua Bassett as Ricky Bowen• Matt Cornett as EJ Caswell• Sofia Wylie as Gina Porter
• Larry Saperstein as Big Red
• Julia Lester as Ashlyn Caswell• Dara Reneé as Kourtney Greene• Frankie Rodriguez as Carlos Rodriguez• Mark St Cyr as Benjamin Mazzara• Kate Reinders as Miss Jenn
• Joe Serafini as Seb Matthew-Smith
Jordan Fisher may also end up playing a bigger role in the future after his character, Jamie Porter, made an impact at the end of season two.
HSM:TM:TS season 3 plot: What will the third season be about?
«There's always more stories to tell, especially with this cast,» said Federle (via Collider) before the season three news hit. According to Variety, the new chapter will follow the characters during their summer break at camp.
season two, we imagine that season three will avoid following the High School Musical movie blueprint, instead choosing another musical to perform. And that's assuming the show even sticks to the musical format at all moving forward. This show does have a habit of going its own way, after all, and there's enough personal drama happening now to fuel a season that avoids this.
«Choosing the musical for the show is hard because there are so many possibilities,» Federle told Hollywood Life.
«I think at the end of the day, the music is a really cool storytelling component of the show, but I really think it’s about the character dynamics.
It's Gina and Ricky, Nini and Ricky, and it's Big Red and Ashlyn that I think the audience really tunes in for. That's a big decision we weigh in heavily when choosing the next show.»
At the end of season two, the Wildcats decided that they don't want to compete at the Menkies anymore, and surprisingly enough, Miss Jen agreed. And that's not even the most surprising thing that happened in the finale.
Benjamin revealed to Miss Jen that he might not end up going to California because he would rather stay with her and try to move things forward romantically. Elsewhere, EJ almost messed things up with Gina, but at the last minute, they realised their mistakes and decided to share their very first kiss.
Gina's brother, Jamie, also made an impact when he offered to work with Nini on producing her music. The future's looking bright for her, but not so much for Ricky, her past love, because he's calling up the mean girl from the rival school for a date. And little does he know that she was the one who sabotaged his transformation scene in Beauty and the Beast…
At least Carlos and Seb are doing well. Expect them to break more ground for LGBTQ+ representation when season three arrives, along with a whole lot of drama from everything else we just recapped from season two.
