The original Wildcats return to East High.
That’s right, several original actors from the musical high school film franchise join the ranks of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series for season four, Disney+ announced on September 23.
So which Wildcats will join the fray? For starters, we see the return of Corbin Blue, who appeared in season three as a more “jaded” version of himself. But he’ll be joined by on-screen love (and the real BFF) Monique Colman in addition to Lucas Grabeel, Bart Johnson, Alyson Roseau and Kaycee Stroh. Could that be why some of the OG stars (cough cough, Zac Efron) have been spotted heading back to school? We will have to wait and see.
So why, exactly, do all the actors return to East High? Get your head in the game for this one: according to the streamer, HSMTMTS will see Disney resurrect the beloved movie trilogy to make the long-awaited High School Musical 4: Reunion. The film will be shot on location and the cast will be there, playing themselves as they resurrect their High School Musical roles. And if that’s not complicated enough, the HSMTMTS the stars will play featured extras in the revival. We are all in the same boat.
