The 2006 film of the same name used to be the go-to film in the last decade. And the show based on the same movie has also kept up with the film’s popularity! There was a spike in the ratings of the series when Olivia Rodrigo released her album and got famous overnight. But now the question arises will there be a High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3. And if so, then when will it be released?
Unfortunately, Disney has not yet renewed the third season but considering the finale of the 2nd season and the hype for the show we are confident that there will be a High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3.
The show created by Tim Federle is set in the fictional version of East High School. And it focuses on a group of high school children who participate in the yearly musical event. As it is a full-fledged show the characters’ lives are also explored fully in the episodes. It takes its inspiration from the film but there are many other plot twists too! So, if you enjoy watching teenage romance and musicals then this show should top your watchlist.
Fast forward to the third installment of High School Musical. Fans have been worried whether the main actors Joshua Bassett and Olivia Rodrigo will return for the 3rd season or not because of their complicated relationship. If you are one of those fans then you don’t need to fret because both actors are committed to the show. Let’s discuss more the upcoming season!
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3 Release Date
As mentioned earlier Disney has not greenlit High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3 yet. But the show is bound to come back because Olivia Rodrigo revealed in an interview that according to the contract she is tied to the franchise for two more years. This also implies that there will be a 4th season of the show too unless the ratings or viewership drastically drops. In that case, the showrunners will most likely cancel it. But we hope that we never get to experience this.
Deducing from the past pattern of production for earlier seasons, expect High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3 to release in late 2022 or early 2023. As soon as the showrunners will announce the renewal news, we’ll update this site. So, stay tuned!
As the show hasn’t been confirmed for the 3rd season there is no official line-up of the cast either. But obviously, the main protagonists will return in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3. And if we are right then the potential cast members for the upcoming 3rd iteration include:
- Joshua Bassett (as Ricky Bowen)
- Matt Cornett (as E. J. Caswell)
- Sofia Wylie (as Gina Porter)
- Larry Saperstein (as Big Red)
- Julia Lester (as Ashlyn Caswell)
- Dara Renée (as Kourtney)
- Frankie Rodriguez (as Carlos)
- Joe Serafini (as Seb)
Will Olivia Rodrigo return in the 3rd season? Yes, she most definitely will reprise her role as Nini Salazar. It will be quite interesting to see her come back for the show as a new sensational pop star!
Jordan Fisher (as Jamie) will also play a key role in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3. Other than him Alex Quijano (Mike Bowen), Olivia Rose Keegan (Lily), Roman Banks (Howie), Derek Hough (Zack) are also expected to return to the show!
The third season will entail more high-school drama. The 2nd season did not follow the original movie closely, and the same is expected from the third season.
The future of Nina looks bright after she collaborates with Gina’s brother for the production of her song. But at the same time, her ex-love interest Ricky will suffer due to his poor life decisions. Carlos and Seb will continue with their gay relationship unless something devastating happens.
Miss Jenn will once again organize a high school musical which will make the base plot for the third season. However we don’t know what else is going to happen as Disney has not revealed the official plot synopsis for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3.
Miss Jenn and Mr. Mazarra might finally get together in the upcoming season! Well to see them live a happy life will surely be delightful. But we still have to be patient for Disney to announce the renewal news.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3 Trailer
There is no official teaser or even a trailer for the show’s third season yet. But with the renewal news, we are also expecting some promo clips. And who knows maybe it is just around the corner. Rest assured, we’ll update you if anything of this sort happens. So, stay tuned!
